Merry Merry Mixtape
Some borderline yuletide songs for your holiday
Happy Holidays, Machinists, however you might observe them. In the spirit of the season, I’ve put together a little mixtape for your enjoyment — a collection of Christmas-y, holiday-y songs. The sort of thing that might run in the background while you huff eggnog, eat flaming pudding, and watch your loved ones destroy the wrapping on your carefully packaged presents.
The bonus track on this one is Dylan Thomas’s Child’s Christmas In Wales, which my family will be listening to tonight, this December 24th, as we have for the last many years, imagining that we are all Welsh village children surrounded by drunken uncles. Please join us.
