Tom Waits “Christmas Card from a Hooker In Minneapolis”
from Cool Christmas (WEA 1993) —Bringing the yuletide cheer - well, the yuletide something. At any rate, it's a terrific song.
Marvin Gaye “Purple Snowfakes”
from Blue Christmas (Mojo 2005) —This song was written almost certainly before anybody at Motown took acid - why purple, then?
Darlene Love “White Christmas”
from A Christmas Gift For You (ABKCO 1963) —Yeah, I hate white Christmases myself, but it looks like we're stuck with one, so let's let the greatest Christmas singer of them all wax rhapsodic about it.
Paul Simon “Getting Ready for Christmas Day”
from single (online 2010) N —I saw him do this on the Colbert Report last week - the samples were muddy on TV, but it all works better on record.
Chris Stamey & the dB's “Christmas Time”
from Ho Ho Ho Spice (Volunteer 2003) —This never became the standard for the rest of the world that it is in my own world. But I have to play it every year, and have done so for something like 25 years.
The Marquees “Christmas in the Congo”
from Cool Yule (Rhino 1988) —See, everybody just wanted American culture back in the day.
