Every year I make a holiday mix tape for friends and family. I try to mix a few classics with a bunch of alternative versions, and by alternative, I mean funk, rock, bluegrass, etc. This year is one of my all time favorites. From the mix, my favorite is probably Caetano Veloso’s “In the Hot Sun of a Christmas Day”. What a find. My son is very fond of Lou Rawl’s scatting at the end of “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”. And Amy Winehouse kills it with her version of “I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus”.
Anyway, if you haven’t heard these songs, you should look them up. I’ll post a few of the videos below my design
