It’s also the time of year when I pull out my Christmas playlist on iTunes. I actually really really love Christmas music but working in retail has a tendency of sucking all the joy out of it. Luckily, our sound system in the store has been a bit wonky for about 2 weeks and I really haven’t noticed the music!!! Generally I just keep the playlist saved in my iTunes and update as necessary the following year if a new CD has come out (for instance, Pink Martini’s Joy to the World is buh-new). So here is my playlist for this year… because I know you can’t get anything done today until you find out what is in slot 4 of the General’s disc changer.
Plus, buy now and get THREE FREE NEW YEARS SONGS!!!
One song you will NEVER EVER see on a playlist of mine is “The Little Drummer Boy.” I can’t staaaaaand all that incessant repitition. I kinda wanna kick that adolescent percussionist right in his rum-pa-pum-ass. Also, every time I heard the song “Bring a Torch Jeanette Isabella” I can’t help but think of my friend Nate who, upon hearing it one day, commented: “God, wouldn’t this make the best drinking song. ‘BRING a TORCH jeaNETTE isaBELLa!’
I’m not a fancy enough blogger to figure out how to put my playlist here for you to listen to, so enjoy some of these clips I found on YouTube!
Artist: Nat King Cole/ Album: The Christmas Song
