Dang Girl! I HAD a song picked out to do for 'Out of Tune Tuesday' but you just threw a wrench into that plan...

You're a lean, mean, MP3 posting machine. I stole a bunch of them, thanks man! :) Yes, one of them was "Last Christmas" despite the fact I routinely make fun of that song. Rock on!

That is one enormous list of songs madamoiselle and aren't you cute as a little biscuit?

I worked in retail for a long time so the constant in-store holiday music drove me a little batty and now I'm easily annoyed by it, but I love that Zoey Dechanel and Leon Redbone song.

Penny said...

woohoo..The Killers, Zooey Daschannel and Mariah Carey.

I actually like to listen to that MC song even when it's not Christmas :)

I am so happy Christmas music is only on the radio for 1 month a year!

Ed Adams said...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

That's a helluva list! Well done, you little Christmas imp.

I was particularly glad to see The Waitresses and the Pretenders on there. But you did forget the Long Blondes' Christmas is Cancelled. tsk tsk

Shelly said...

Last Christmas and Do They Know They Know It's Christmastime At All?! I'm feeling the George Michael love!

Richard @ The Bewildered Brit said...

Some truly fantastic songs on there!

Not so sure about the Mariah Carey one, though. :)

Alice said...

YOU ARE MY SAVIOR. i have been casting about fruitlessly for good xmas songs for a party this weekend, and all i had to do was come here! :-) thank you!!

Tootsie said...

You forgot "My Christmas List" by Simple Plan, my theme song, minus the girl in my bed.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

SERIOULSY? Best playlist ever. HIGH FIVE.

words...words...words... said...

Excellent list! Hardly anyone ever brings up "Father Christmas" but it's one of my favorites. My obligatory "you forgot..." selection is the Pretenders' version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
