Junk Shop Xmas
25 days to go until Shane Macgowan's birthday! And if you're wondering what all the fuss about the elephant was earlier this week, check out track 12 on the mix below.
Yep it's time for another Holiday Smash Hits mix from the Mountain. Below you'll find a fantastic mp3 featuring all the swell tunes that helped keep you warm during Season 2 of the Big Rock Candy Mountain Xmas celebration. Download it for easy use on train, planes, and automobiles! It's portable!
I would, of course, be remiss if I didn't point out that there a ton of great sites out there that do this kind of thing even better than the Mountain. So after snatching the tunes below, head over to Senses Working Overtime, Santa's Working Overtime, Falalalala.com, and bongobells to get you started. They're super swell sites, and you're gonna want to visit them daily. We'll get those links and more up on the sidebar over the weekend.
For now, please enjoy the following mix. Mp3 link follows the track listing.
