Sunday Spotify 16: Christmas 2016

As we speak, Santa is probably en route through America, giving toys to all the good boys and girls across the land. Mr. Claus is really good at delivering goods with his reindeer and elf friends, but he’s not much of a playlist maker. So while Santa is doing his thing, The Ghost will continue doing his thing. I’m delivering you a fine playlist of sixteen local (and Texas) Christmas songs. I hope these songs bring you some much needed holiday cheer in what’s been a rough year for most. And whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, or none of the above, I wish you nothing but joy this season.

  1. Reverend Horton Heat, “Frosty the Snowman”
  2. Old 97’s, “Here It Is Christmas Time”
  3. Rahim Quazi, “Merry Christmas Now”
  4. Calhoun, “(Anywhere But) Home for the Holidays”
  5. Becky Middleton, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”
  6. THe BAcksliders, “That’s How We Do Christmas”
  7. Sharks in the Deep End, “Don’t Be a Jerk This Christmas”
  8. The Polyphonic Spree, “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”
  9. Chomsky, “Christmas Time Is Here”
  10. Quiet Company, “O Holy Night”
  11. dj ewi, “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”
  12. Vanessa Peters, “The Christmas Song”
  13. Brave Combo, “Feliz Navidad”
  14. The Mastersons, “This Holiday’s No Holiday (Without You)”
  15. Robert Earl Keen, “Merry Christmas from the Family”
  16. Black Tie Dynasty, “Christmas Time”

Me thinks The Ghost has been partied out, however, so there will be no commentary from me today. Instead, I [...]

New episodes of the radio show will return [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/29/19 This Thursday will mark the twelve year anniversary of the blog, and with that anniversary comes twelve years of the second identity I took on: The Ghost. I certainly chose the name Ghost of Blind Lemon in part as a tribute to Dallas’ first major blues musician to take residence here, Blind Lemon Jefferson. But [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/22/19 Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/1/19 So you all know that July 4th is Independence Day, which marks the anniversary of the U.S. declaring itself its own country.  I bet you didn’t know, however, that July 4th is National Country Music Day.  It seems appropriate, as I’m not sure there’s a musical style that’s as distinctively American is Country.  In honor [...]
