Holiday Music Doesn't Have To Suck

The worst part of the holidays? If you ask me, it's the music.

But it doesn't have to be. And each year, we have a few customers/friends who make us awesome holiday music mixes (thanks!) that prove the point!

Here's another example of some great music perfect for this time of year:

NEKO CASE - Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis [MP3]

Neko is covering a Tom Waits song. For more MP3s of holiday music that doesn't suck, check out the blog Podbop's ongoing series of posts, Crazy Christmas Mix.

You might also want to try these holiday music CDs in order to avoid the musical stylings of Mr. Burl Ives:

A John Waters Christmas (our copies come signed by John - while supplies last!)
Christmas Time Again by the dB's & friends
What I Really Want For Christmas by Brian Wilson
Songs For Christmas by Sufjan Stevens (sold out, but we're hoping to get more before Christmas)
