Hey guys and gals,
I'm feeling festive and loving christmas music right now. A few of my most listened ones right now are:
The Kinks - Father Christmas The Ramones - Merry Christmas (I dont want to fight tonight) The Flaming Lips - Christmas at the Zoo The Pogues - Fairytale of New York Atom & His Package - What We Do On Christmas.
What do you listen to when you're feeling christmas-ey?
Eels - Everything's Gonna be Cool this Christmas The Pogues - Fairytale of New York The Flaming Lips - Christmas at the Zoo Southern Culture on the Skids - Merry Christmas, Baby Lightspeed Champion - Perfect Harmony (& the rest of the Bad Xmas EP) John Craigie - Talkin' Orange Alert Blues Ben Folds - Bizarre Christmas Incident
Fairytale, obvz. Baby It's Cold Outside (pretty much any rendition), Tom Waits - Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis, Murder City Devils - 364 Days, Eels - Christmas Is Going To The Dogs. Errrm, there's loads. Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses. I love all that Rat Pack shit too.

Neko Case's cover of "Christmas card from a hooker in Minneapolis" "Fairytale of New York" "Christmas (Baby please come home)" Dariene Love Jill Sobule's cover of Robert Earl Keane's "Merry Christmas from the family" and right now I'm really loving Low's "Just like Christmas" and I usually don't like Low.

Craig Finn: It's a tie between "Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues and "Christmas Must be Tonight" by the Band. I think "Fairytale..." is incredibly romantic, the idea of Christmas as immigrants to America From this week's NME
Me: Pogues - Fairytale of New York Bruce Springsteen - Santa Claus is Coming to Town Killers - Please don't shoot me Santa (Just because it's a bit of a laugh)
