So I tried to put together a set of winter time Christmas music, but it was tougher than I thought it’d be. After I put it all together, I sat back, and it was a little bleak. Cold, lonely… jeepers heck. It was wintry indeed.
We start off in New York City, a great place to spend the holidays. Mitchell Vaillant tells us all about driving a yellow cab during the holidays in Manhattan in his tune titled, Hackin’. Next up is a bizarre treat, it’s everyone’s favorite terrible band, The Pilots. These kids are all about 14, and the best part is the arguments at the beginning and end of each recording. This tune is from 1979 and titled, Wise Man. I figure all Christmas celebrations have a wise man or two, or three.
A song with a dreamy quiet winter feel is mopehead’s This Boy’s Life. Lazy as a cold day all snuggled up on the couch with a blanket. Frank’s Depression recites Jesus Christ Has Come And Gone. Rain Station warms us up with (Earth Don’t) Fade Away. This Can Free completes the set with Isn’t Life Wonderful? – which sounds like the name of a Christmas movie, so there you go. Happy Holidays Everyone!
