A Kickass Xmas 2007

I made my annual Xmas Music Mix and launched it this weekend:

I must say, it's the best mix yet:

1. The 12 Days of Xmas - The Joseph & Mary Chain, et al.
2. Merry Xmas & Happy New Year - Martha Wainwright
3. Papa Noel - Brenda Lee
4. Winter Wonderland - Liz Phair
5. Sleigh Ride - The Soulful Strings
6. The Man with All the Toys - Knight & Doble
7. Santa Clause is Coming to Town - Bing Crosby
8. Carol of the Bells - The Carpenters
9. Still Still Still - Sunfall Festival
10. That was the Worst Xmas Ever! - Sufjan Stevens
11. Little Drummer Boy - Iain Archer
12. Fairy Tale of New York - KT Tunstall & Ed Harcourt
13. In Dulce Jublio - Mike Oldfield
14. Have Yourself a Merry Little Xmas - Aimee Mann
15. Jingle Bells - Frank Sinatra
16. Ring Those Xmas Bells - Peggy Lee
17. Santa Clause is Comin’ to Town - Bobby Sherman
18. Jolly Ol’ St. Nick Medly - The Ray Conniff Singers
19. Kings & Things - The Recital
20. What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? - Henry Mancini
21. 2006 (This Year’s Resolutions) - Hello Saferide
22. Sister Winter - Sufjan Stevens
23. Merry Xmas Everyone - Shakin’ Stevens

I wish I could share it with all of your without breaking a million different copyright laws. If you're crafty, though, you can probably find most of the tunes online for free, and then you can email me and ask me for the high res cover to print for your own collection and we can spend the holiday season knowing that we are enjoying the exact same soundtrack. Unfortunately I didn't have the time or the inspiration to create my own original Xmas tune this year, but you can still download The Kickassiest Christmas from last year, a tune which I have recently submitted to The Great Sufan Xmas Song Xchange contest. I not only expect to win, but I expect to be discovered and launched toward inevitable stardom as a result. See you at that Grammys, bitches!

UPDATE: I added a link to a Jukebox where you can listen to this mix in its entirety. It's in the right column, so click away and enjoy!

Unfortunately, only a handful of the songs seem to be available on iTunes, otherwise I would. I'm still trying to get a jukebox running on my site to at least stream the tunes...

I run a monthly thing where a bunch of us create FineTune Playlists based around a theme, and this month's theme happens to be the holidays.

Why not put the list together on FineTune and then we can all stream it at will? It's free.

Unfortunately, the minimum list is 45 songs, so you'd have to lengthen your mix a bit.

Nice mix, but you forgot "I Got a Boner For Christmas" by Nerf Herder.
