This week, I’m pulling from the archives of my Christmas Mix CD collection to share 3 originals and a cover for Christmas Eve Eve.
Kevin Devine– Splitting Up Christmas
“I know the world’s almost over, but you make it seem better and I hope for you I do the same”
Belle and Sebastian– Are You Coming Over for Christmas?
“…me and you singing a carol on the tough side of town”
Jimmy Eat World– 12.23.95
“Merry Christmas, Baby.”
and a cover:
Pedro the Lion– I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day. 1863 poem “Christmas Bells” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It was set to music in 1872 and has been over and over again since.
“And wild and sweet, the words repeat
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men”
Merry Merry Christmas, Static and Distortion readers and listeners!
