iPod Random Ten 12-21-07 – Holiday Edition

In honor of the season, these come from my “Christmas” playlist.

“All I Want For Christmas Is You,” Mariah Carey
(A mildly guilty pleasure, this one, but fun)
“White Christmas,” Bing Crosby
(As far as Tall Paul’s concerned, no one else ever needs to record this song)
“Holly Jolly Christmas,” Burl Ives
(One of my top favorite holiday songs! It’s just so cheery.)
“The Nutcracker Suite,” The Brian Setzer Orchestra
(Not the version from your ballet class…)
“Winter Wonderland,” Bing Crosby
(It’s not Christmas without “Der Bingle,” but this song has little to do with Christmas in SoCal)
“Frosty the Snowman,” The Ronettes
(OK, so Phil Spector’s probably crazy, but I love nearly every song on the album he produced with his early-60’s artists, A Christmas Gift For You)
“Run Rudolph Run,” Chuck Berry
(So why does he sing it “Run, run, Rudolph” if it’s “Run, Rudolph, Run”?)
“(Everybody’s Waiting For) The Man With the Bag,” The Brian Setzer Orchestra
(NOT one of my favorites, but in the spirit of randomness, it came up on the list and so here it is)
“White Christmas,” Darlene Love
(I disagree with Tall Paul – I like this version, also from the Phil Spector Christmas album)
“Linus and Lucy,” Vince Guaraldi Trio
(This is the peppy piano number from A Charlie Brown Christmas, not the droning “Christmas time is here…” one)

But Christmas time IS here! Just a few more days are left to open on your Advent calendar…

  1. I’ve had the radio tuned into the Christmas station all day as I cleaned house and finished up the book I was reading. They’re repeating songs so I’ve probably been listening too long. 🙂
