The Strange Holiday Mix, 2011

A little later than in past years, here’s the holiday-type music now in heavy rotation on all the iDevices. A little more traditional, maybe just slightly mellower, than in past years but still with enough oddities to keep things interesting. And, as always, totally and completely Glee-free.

6. Silent Night – Sixpence None The Richer
7. Cool Yule – Louis Armstrong & The Commanders
8. Ain’t Nothin’ Like Christmas – Shelby Lynne
9. The Christmas Waltz – She & Him
10. Toy Packaging – Sara Groves
11. Cold December Night РMichael Bubl̩
12. You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch – Thurl Ravenscroft
13. Peace On Earth / Little Drummer Boy – Jack Black & Jason Segel
14. Christmas Lights – Coldplay
15. Holiday – Vampire Weekend
16. I’ll Be Home For Christmas – Tony Bennett
17. Getting Ready For Christmas Day – Paul Simon
18. Christians and Pagans – Dar Williams

    As always, your holiday mix seems to reflect you, Tim. A little more traditional, a little more mellow, still with enough oddities to keep it interesting and, of course, heavy on all iDevices.
    Happy holidays!

    This is an interesting mix, Tim. I’ll have to piece it together in Grooveshark and give a listen as I’m not familiar with all of these. Hope you get to enjoy some of the Christmas break.

    This year, I’ve decided to celebrate the holidays intensely, so I’ve been eagerly anticipating this! Thanks!

      Thanks, Dave. I’d love to give everyone a copy of the mix CD but I’m sure the RIAA would object. :-)
