(Another) Holiday Mix

The good people at Relative Theory Records, in Norfolk, Virginia, compiled a damn fine 24-track holiday* mix called "Wreck The Halls." You can download the zip file and cover art here. I love the fine print at the bottom of the page:

©® 2005 - All copyrights belong to their respective writers / publishers / etc. Used without permission.

I could use that last sentence for about 99% of my mp3 posts.

The tracklist is:

1. The Free Design - Christmas Is The Day
2. James Brown - Soulful Christmas
3. Run DMC - Christmas In Hollis
4. Stevie Wonder - What Christmas Means To Me
5. Wesley Willis - Merry Christmas
6. Polyphonic Spree - So This Is Christmas
7. Grandaddy - Alan Parsons in Winter Wonderland
8. Pat Benatar - Please Come Home For Christmas
9. Mogwai - Christmas Song
10. Danny Elfman - Edward Scissorhands Ice Dance
11. Carpenters - Carol of The Bells
12. Saint Etienne - My Christmas Prayer
13. Eels - Christmas Is Going to the Dogs
14. Low - Just Like Christmas
15. Erlend Oye - Last Christmas
16. Sam Cooke - Christmas Means Love
17. Rufus Wainwright - Spotlight On Christmas
18. The Raveonettes - The Christmas Song
19. Badly Drawn boy - Donna and Blitzen
20. Feist - Lo How A Rose E'er Bloomin
21. Sufjan Stevens - Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
22. Matt Pond PA - Holiday Road
23. Murder City Devils - Dead By Christmas
24. David Banner - It's Christmas Time

*The word holiday is from the Middle English holidai, meaning "holy day." So is "Holiday Mix" more politically correct than "Christmas Mix?"
