Well I did it. I waited `til after Thanksgiving to post my Christmas mix. So far a lot of these songs are from last year (or years past), hell I even recycled the photo from last year’s post. I’ll do my best to update this mix as new songs appear. I love these songs. They are some of the best Christmas songs you’re likely to hear and for a large part they are ones I’ve dug up first. So Enjoy and Merry Christmas (three weeks early).
P.S. I’m so low tech it’s not even funny so if someone wants to create a .zip and host it somewhere be my guest and leave it in the comments.
P.P.S. If I had to recommend just three songs that represent the best of the new Christmas standards I’d say to take a close listen to Dan Byrk’s “Cosy Evenings”, “Here Comes Christmas” By Bill Kelly, and “Christmas At The Trailer Park” by Antsy McClain.
