It’s A Long Way Down the Holiday Road

Santa drawing entries!  They are finally coming in.  And we couldn’t be happier.  Seriously, one of the things this time of year is about is bringing a smile to our faces.  I wish I could reply to each one individually—and, in due time, I’m sure that I will.  But yes, these are bringing smiles to our rapidly aging faces.  Keep them coming!  The details to the contest is at the side.  You win an autographed copy of my book, a special mix CD, and a special gift we don’t want to spoil.

Did you know that it’s our fifth anniversary this year?  Perhaps we’ll have a little retrospective of the greatest and worst moments, a recap of how all this started, and some champagne to celebrate.  We’re also approaching our 300th post, which I hope to make a special one.  Hopefully my request for Bono to contribute a guest post pans out.  If not, we can always go with someone else.

Hey, it’s not technically a holiday song, but this great cover of Buckingham’s classic has a nice winter feel.  And while we love a certain holiday themed National Lampoon’s film in these parts, let’s not forget the original, a classic in it’s own right.

Cowboys and cowgirls, don’t think for a second that Santa can’t get to you.  Oh no, he can ride the trail as well—and singing cowboy songs while he’s doing it.

I ain’t had a drink this morning, but I’m lit up like a Christmas tree.  I hear you, Mari.  Especially when you say about having good music on your radio. 

Oh, there’s nothing like that sweet soul sound, name-checking every city in the U.S.A. while delivering a holiday message of love.  All the world needs on Christmas is love.  Amen.

There’s someone who reads this blog who knows that this song goes out to him.  And, he’ll know what this means as well: thank you.

Today’s drawing: in honor of The Beatles coming to iTunes, here’s a Beatles cover.  Santa: The White Album.
