The Annual Christmas Music Post (2013)
It's Christmas Eve again, and DJ Creek Chub is in the house with your Christmas music list. Every Christmas Eve for five years we've been listing our favorite Christmas songs. This year the theme is "underrated Christmas Songs." For those interested, here is 2012; Here is 2010: and here Here is 2009.
Dancin' with Santa by the Trashmen (of Surfin' Bird fame).
The Waitresses with "Christmas Wrapping." This one is so 1980s it hurts.
The Wilson Sisters sing "Hey Santa." This one is as 1990s as they get.
A 1960s classic: The O'Jays sing "Christmas Just Ain't Christmas"
An all-time classic: Leon Redbone sings "Christmas on Christmas Island"
A camp song that's recently become popular: Lou Monte's Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey.
One the all-time greats, still doesn't get the respect it deserves: Frank Sinatra's Christmas Waltz.
A newer classic: Darlene Love's "All Alone on Christmas."
A hipster Christmas tune: Guster's Tiny Tree Christmas.
Mrs. Santa Claus by Nat King Cole.
Rock out with the Kinks and Father Christmas.
And finally, a new song by Mikey Wax with a beat by a former member of Wings: A Happy New Year.
Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!
