Xmas Jam Countdown: Morphine, "Sexy Christmas Baby Mine"



(Each day until Christmas, A to Z will be posting a Christmas/holiday-themed MP3 in honor of the festive season, in hopes of warding off the seasonal blahs. Check back every day for a new nugget of sonic bliss.)

MP3: Morphine, "Sexy Christmas Baby Mine"

A b-side to a rare 7" of the sultry tune "Cure for Pain," the seductive holiday jam "Sexy Baby Christmas Mine" is now easily found on Morphine's greatest hits collection, The Best of Morphine 1992-1995. The Boston trio is one of more underrated acts of the '90s, one whose saxophone trills and rumbling bass -- along with the genteel black-velvet enunciation of the late Mark Sandman -- still induce shivers to this day. Saxophonist Dana Colley is now in the group A.K.A.C.O.D.
