A Burning Ear Christmas – Part 2: Classics Covered

xmas kittyOK, so Christmas is quickly approaching and although you have been thinking a lot about shopping as you have been listening to TBE X-Mas Part 1, you haven’t been doing much about it. Now that shopping days are countable on our hands it’s time to kick the spirit into high gear. I’ve done all I can to help by cobbling together this mix of Christmas classics covered by our contemporaries. You don’t even need to celebrate Christmas to enjoy these jams! So weather you are as behind on your holiday business as I am or not, throw this bad boy on a blank CD, stop staring at that cute kitten, and get movin’ pronto!

    Way late to this party, for sure, but I had to weigh in with a little love for Nick Hexum's Meli Kalikimaka. I frickin' love this track, and I think I probably played it at least 235 times 'round the recent holidays. Didn't make me feel like I was in Hawaii for Christmas per se, but it at least made me want to go find a hula dancer bobblehead and put it on the mantle. :-)

    Great list, man.
