The Christmas 2016 Spotify playlist is here! I’ve been maintaining this playlist for many years now. It has favorites from Christmases of my childhood as well as more recent discoveries both new and old. I’ll probably add even more between now and New Year’s Eve. So enjoy some fun, frivolous and fabulous music for what I hope is a joyous and safe holiday season for all of you!

  2. Dammit, why’d-ja hafta go and do that?!! Dredged up fabulous memories of a LIVE Christmas program at the Brooklyn Fox Theatre: Darlene Love, Ronettes, (And maybe the Crystals.. can’t be sure of that one.)
    And real Christmas carolers trudging through the snow in Brooklyn Heights on Christmas Eve.

  3. For a slightly more worldly version of George’s list try Punk Martini’s Joy to the World

    Wonderful playlist, George. Thanks for sharing it. Enjoy your first Christmas back in Cleveland.

  5. Angela Lansbury singing “We Need a Little Christmas Now” (from ‘Mame’)
