DAY 24: Titus Turner: Christmas Morning

Day 24...! Happy Christmas Eve..!

... Titus Turner croons like the best of 'em. I love the way he sings the word "morning" in parts of this.. Like.. in the "mewwwnin', baby. This song has been on a few comps I think, and also available on the Titus Turner "Classics" cd..

Hope everyone is having a fab x-mas...!

DAY 23: The Shitbirds - Christmas Is Coming

wow @ DAY 23...!

So it's crunch time. Grab those last minute gifts.. make the last few runs to the packy... start packin bags & get ready for the 4+ hour long bus ride up to moms. Or, to put in simpler terms.. CHRISTMAS IS A-COMING..! I dig this Shitbirds' cover of this one.. Off the "Happy Birthday Baby Jesus" comp..


i got a new little thingy that plays right on the page.. i shoulda got this a month ago but hey better late than never.



This was one of my favorite songs from childhood. We used to LOVE the Muppets album.. Which was all songs taken from the "John Denver & The Muppets: A Christmas Together" TV Special, (which you can download in 6 parts over on youtube...)

This part where Miss Piggy sings this one was basically the childhood equivalent of going to see Iggy Pop for me.

DAY 22: The Tryfles - Gloria (In Excelsis Deo)

Day 22...! WOW!

Another track of the "Midnight Christmas Mess" comp.. Yeah, I already posted one from this compilation, but this one is too good to keep off the list.. The Tryfles were a mid 80's "garage-rock revival" band from NYC.. Here they do a great version of the traditional "In Excelsis Deo", but cleverly 'mashed-up" (yes, there were mash-ups before this recent age of MP3J's ) with a song you will surely recognize... You'll find more info on The Tryfles here.

DAY 21: Happy SOUL-stice...! Count Sidney & His Dukes - Soul Christmas

Day 21..!

So today is the 1st 'official' day of winter.. Or, also known as, Winter Solstice...
This amazing tune by Count Sidney & His Dukes is one of those ones you can't help but shake yer ass to. Okay, well maybe that's just me & my mom after a few eggnogs. In any case, here ya go.

ALSO, upon doing the image search on this one.. I found a copy of this sweet '45 up on eBay... So if you're still wondering what to get me for x-mas.. well.. ahem.

DAY 20: Pearl Bailey - Five Pound Box Of Money

Day 20..!

If you're like me this year, the x-mas budget is as tight as Santa's belt after eating all those cookies.. Pearl Bailey is cuttin right to the chase here with her Christmas list. Money. Make it a 5 pound.. No, better make that, a 10 pound... Box of money.

Also, I said in a previous day that I wouldn't post "Baby It's Cold Outside".. but you gotta give it up for this version done by the extraordinary Pearl Bailey along with Oran "Hot Lips" Page... .. We got hit with about 10"'s of snow from last night through today. And it IS f'n cold outside.

So today ya get a 2 'fer.
