The traditional side

For the last few days Bob's been asking me to make him a Christmas CD, and I finally sat down last night (very late last night) to finish it up for him. He said he wanted some traditional songs, and "some of your weird ones." I worked hard to get that balance right. Here's his playlist:

  1. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - The Barenaked Ladies
  2. Deck the Halls - Mannheim Steamroller
  3. Jingle Bells - Earl Scruggs
  4. Anno Domine - Trans Siberian Orchestra
  5. Christmas Must be Tonight - The Band
  6. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing - Mannheim Steamroller
  7. Driving Home for Christmas - Chris Rea
  8. Better Days (Acoustic Version) - Goo Goo Dolls
  9. The Virgin Mary - Mason Williams
  10. That Old Christmas Moon - Leon Redbone
  11. We Three Kings - The Roches
  12. A Song of Christmas - Lowen & Navarro
  13. Christmas Bayou - BeauSoleil
  14. Winter Wonderland - Lenny B & Madison Park
  15. I'll Be Home for Christmas - Leon Redbone
  16. Christmas All Over Again - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
  17. Little Saint Nick - The Beach Boys
  18. Here We Come Wassailing - Fred Waring & The Pennsylvanians
  19. Christmas Time - Smashing Pumpkins
  20. Oh Tannenbaum - Vince Guaraldi

I'm still working on one for me, leaning very heavily toward the "weird" side.

Hi Willa! Matt dawdy here, a blast from the past. If youneed a cheesy poppy suggestion for an Xmas song, try Christmas Wrapping by the Spice Girls.

Anyway I thought I'd just say hi. I drop in every year or so and read your journal. I'll be by more regularly.

I have missed you a lot over the past seven ( seven!) years or so.
