It's Christmas Time Pretty Baby
A grab bag of old standards and new classics today.
Palace Songs: Christmastime in the Mountains
I will follow Will Oldham's voice wherever it wants to lead me.
Bing Crosby/David Bowie: Peace on Earth/The Little Drummer Boy
Low: Little Drummer Boy
Creepy and Gorgeous!
Willie Nelson: Pretty Paper
Great tune. I actually prefer Orbison's version, and challenge JV to post it.
My Morning Jacket: Santa Claus is Back in Town
Great, boozy, bluesy, old school MMJ feel on this.
Patti Page: Pretty Snowflakes
Because you have to have at least one xmas tune with children singing the chorus. I guess.
Vince Guraldi: Christmas Time is Here (Vocal Version)
That's more like it.
Kyu Sakamoto: Sukiyaki
I don't care if it doesn't fit the 77 Santas mold, I love this song.
