Sunday Spotify 16: Christmas 2016

IMG_8232

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”

  • Monday Mixteen: 12/24/2018 It’s that most wonderful time of the season.  It’s when we get to find out who’s been naughty, and who’s been nice.  It’s a time of gift-giving, and of spreading goodwill to your neighbor.  That’s right; it’s time to celebrate the upcoming Ghost’s Top 101 Songs of 2018.  But you knew that’s what I was [...]
