WeeFuse’s Virtual Turntable: Christmas Eve Edition

I'd wear it!

I’d wear it!

I’ve you haven’t already you’re probably going to be in a position over the next day or two where you’re subjected to the same old Christmas music- Mannheim Steamroller, David Bowie and Bing Crosby singing “Little Drummer Boy,” somebody long-dead singing “White Christmas,” etc..  This will lead to all of the predictable outcomes: migraines, heavy drinking, insults that can’t be taken back, and perhaps even violence.

With all of that in mind, I offer you a refuge should you be able to commandeer the “hi-fi” at your destination of choice with my special holiday playlist- about two hours of music that will show both your Christmas spirit and bolster your level of cool among your family and friends.  Here you go:

    Yeah, well, I LIKE Burl Ives and Bing Crosby. And those are infinitely better than the alternative: Roger Whittaker, Barry Manilow, Helen Reddy, and The Beach Boys (and there’s more, and they’re worse). And people wonder why I refuse to drive for 13+ hours? *shudder* I prefer staying home and ignoring all of it (including the Bing Crosby, actually).

    Happy Christmas Scrooge! -Marley
