in Stuff I Like

In honor of crass commercialism all around the world, I have crafted a mixtape in honor of the best promotion ever – Christmas In July. Why are July and December so inextricably linked? I have no idea, and I don’t pretend to have answers.

These are songs:

  1. The Waitresses – Christmas Wrapping
  2. Patton Oswalt – My Christmas Memory
  3. The Chipmunks – The Chipmunks Song
  4. Guster – Donde Esta Santa Claus?
  5. Sufjan Stevens – Come On! Let’s Boogey To The Elf Dance!
  6. Fiona Apple – Frosty The Snowman
  7. Badly Drawn Boy – Donna and Blitzen
  8. Colossus – Charlie Brown Cut-Up
  9. Thurl Ravenscroft – You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch
  10. Beck – The Little Drum Machine Boy
  11. Run DMC – Christmas In Hollis
  12. Squirrel Nut Zippers – Hot Christmas
  13. The Killers – A Great Big Sled
  14. Nellie McKay – Christmas Dirge
  15. Paper Route – City Trucks
  16. Flaming Lips – White Christmas

Enjoy the holiday mood (dang, I forgot “Holiday Mood,” by The Apples In Stereo) and check back here for MP3 goodness later.

I was always a huge fan of Everclear’s I Will Be Hating You For Christmas. It’s fantastic music to weed out your card list to.
