In the Fourth Blog of Christmas...

So.... in the fourth blog of Christmas, your blogger gives to you a Christmas Mix. Some friends recommended that I post this; they say it's the best mix anyone has given them. All songs are downloadable at iTunes (I wasn't paid to type that).




Mele Kalikimaka by Chris Isaak
aahhh, Hawaii - my blood pressure just fell ten points
Green Christmas by Barenaked Ladies
the ladies can do no wrong
We Three Kings by Fuel
wishing you a post-grunge Christmas
Deck the Halls by The Roches
falalala's in harmony
Christmas for Cowboys by Jars of Clay
a holiday ballad for the American cowboy
Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt & Henri Rene
Eartha is the only one to do this song justice
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear by Sixpence None the Richer
see, Kiss Me, isn't the only SNtR song downloaded from iTunes
Baby It's Cold Outside by Royal Crown Revue & Vicky Tafoya
yeah, I know, kind of creepy
Sleigh Ride by Ella Fitzgerald
to quote Frazier's dad, "she's a groovy lady"
You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch by Boris Karloff
the only grinch
Song for a Winter's Night by Sarah McLachlan
very breathy
I Celebrate the Day by Relient K
the last line of the song is my absolute favorite
Boogie Woogie Santa Clause by The Brian Setzer Orchestra
in a Simpson's episode Homer corrects Brian Setzer, telling him that it's "Seltzer"
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Barenaked Ladies
syncopated perfection, wouldn't you agree
I'll Be Home for Christmas by Nickel Creek
I wish I could play the mandolin
Medley: Carol of the Bells by The Swingle Singers
martini lounge Christmas
Carol of the Meows by Guster
my friends say this is the mistake in this list
'Zat You, Santa Claus? by Louis Armstrong & The Commanders
his voice makes my throat hurt
I Heard the Bells On Christmas Day by Pedro the Lion
slow and almost sad
Christmas Is Going to the Dogs by Eels
canine fun for Travis
(Everybody's Waitin' For) The Man with the Bag by The Brian Setzer Orchestra

!Feliz Navidad! Yo quiero Guster

This is my favorite Christmas mix ever - except for the cats. Cats make me sneeze.
I'm so glad you're doing the 12 Blogs of Christmas - I look forward to it every day!

I definitely have to agree with Celebrate the Day. I normally don't like Reliant K very much, but I own their Christmas CD, and that song is amazing.
