Christmastime is Here

December 13, 2007

As the holidays are approaching I’ve compiled a list of music to tide me over until New Years. I’m still looking around the interweb for anything else that catches my eye, but here’s a short list of christmas goodies:

  • Daniel Johnston’s “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”
  • Beck’s “The Little Drum Machine Boy”
  • of Montreal’s “My Favorite Christmas (In One Hundred Words or Less)”
  • Grandaddy “Alan Parsons in a Winter Wonderland”
  • James Brown “Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto”
  • My First Keyboard “Christmas Is Only Good If You’re A Girl (Boy)”
  • of Montreal’s “Christmas Isn’t Safe For Animals”
  • Queens of Sheeba “Christmas time Celebration”
  • the Olivia Tremor Control’s “Christmas With William S.”
  • Ringo Starr “I Wanna Be Santa Claus”
  • Arcade Fire’s “Jingle Bell Rock”
  • Tom Wait’s “Christmas Card From a Hooker In Minneapolis”
  • Summer Hymns “Santa Couldn’t Fit You Under My Christmas Tree”
  • T. Rex “Christmas Bop”
  • Major Organ and the Adding Machine “What A Wonder World”
  • Tiny Tim’s “White Christmas”
  • The White Stripe’s “Candy Cane Children”

And of course, no holiday season is complete without the corner stone of christmas soundtrack:
