  3. Yeah!!!!!

  4. Sweet. I love Roger Miller. This is a great mix thanks!

  5. same great post as last year… but pretty sure you could mix something new and exciting …. got to wait for next year ?
    thanks anyway

  6. great stuff, i remember some from last year. My fav. is still the Stax Soul Xmas CD. “Everyday will be like a holiday” by William Bell is my favorite xmas song of all time. so beautiful and good enough to listen to all year round.


  7. These songs make Christmas music look hip. Old country and soul Christmas music is unbeatable and, with some indie rock Christmas (i.e. Sufjan Stevens amongst others) produces an unbeatable Christmas playlist. Thanks to music blogs, we don’t have to suffer by listening to Last Christmas by Wham! anymore.

  8. I’m a big fan of taking the old Christmas classics and putting a new spin on them. Check out Starfield’s version of O Come All Ye Faithful.

    Great blog for buried music:
    Digging For Days

  9. Um, so that link above apparently takes you to a Bible something or other. Here is the real deal.
