Holiday MP3 Post, #7: The Classics



I should know better by now that the holidays -- and their accompanying early deadlines -- make big projects a bit too ambitious. (See also: why I never send out Christmas cards.) But I would be remiss if I didn't post a few classic holiday MP3s for everyone. I suggest listening to them before you head out to one of the many, many holiday shows tonight taking place at Off Broadway (So Many Dynamos, Gentleman Auction House, Laite, Light Pollution), Cicero's (Jumbling Towers, Say Panther, Elsinore, KIng Thief) or the Old Rock House (The Feed, Go Van Gogh, Jones Street Boys, Caleb Travers).

A to Z will be updated sporadically until January, due to holiday shenanigans and vacation -- although I'd look tomorrow for a huge MP3 post. Either way, check back every so often; perhaps boredom will drive me post while visiting the fam.

MP3: U2, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"

MP3: Elton John, "Step Into Christmas"

MP3: Joni Mitchell, "The River"

MP3: Mariah Carey, "All I Want For Christmas Is You"
