Because Songs Matter


I am usually a damn Grinch at this time of year. To be perfectly honest I have dreaded the holidays for years. The bright spot for me was making a compilation with either songs making fun of, parodying, or outright hating Christmas. I won’t bore you with all the details of why I hated Christmas but I suffice it to say I was a right bastard between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. This year things are different. I am actually in a great mood. But I still went off to make my usual snarky compilation. Then something happened right around track 11. I had all the holiday music I have here at the office queued up on random and going through the usual suspects for my tracks and a Johnny Cash song/spoken word thing popped up in the playlist. I paused and finished out my compilation in a different manner. So from about track 11 on this is less snarky than my last few holiday mixes. It ends with a Johnny Cash/band/spoken word thing but the two tracks that precede it are my favorite, even if they aren’t traditional, Christmas tracks of all time.

So from my family to yours: Merry Christmas!!!

And without further ado…
