Another sack full of goodies, kids!
Canned Heat: Christmas Blues
My mom snuck into a hotel and swam with these guys when she was younger. This is all I know of them, aside from their hit about going to the country. This is nice.
Eddie Money: Everybody Loves Christmas
And everybody loves Eddie Money, whether they know it or not.
Lynyrd Skynyrd: Run Run Rudolph
God how I love this band! Give me a 12 pack, a back porch, and a Skynyrd CD and I'm content.
Spinal Tap: Christmas With the Devil
Does Christmas go to 11? I'll take this "non-band" over many of the "bands" currently playing on the radio.
The Kinks: Father Christmas
This one's for Pookie. I love the honesty of this song: "Hey Santa, just give us some money." Plus, um, it's the Kinks.
Andrews Sisters and Guy Lombardo: Christmas Island
Possibly my favorite "song I never heard til this year." Such a great sound! And who wouldn't want Santa to deliver their gifts via canoe?
Harry Simone Chorale: Little Drummer Boy
Great version. This plays on the radio here alot.
