Funky Santa Train
So what is your favorite Xmas song? We're partial to "Good King Wenceslas", so far as traditional-type Holiday songs go. But our very favorite is...well, regular readers already know, I suspect. And newer visitors can probably guess. But if you haven't a clue, stayed tuned, as we'll get to it later this week. Gosh...
What to say about today's Xmas jingles? Some funky Soul and boogie Blues, that's what. Oh, and one of 'em's about a Christmas train. How Big Rock Candy Mountain is that? Oh, and, also, one of the these songs is most definitely Not Safe For Work, or for the young'uns. You can probably guess which one. So thanks to The Soul Saints Orchestra, Carey Bell, the eternally filthy Rudy Ray Moore, and Mel Brown and His Homewreckers for a little Joy to the World today.
Bonus Re-Posts are all kinds of delicious Country and Western treats. I mean, how can you possibly go wrong with Tinsel tunes from Jim Lauderdale, Roger Miller, Jerry Reed, Dolly Parton, John Prine, and Merle Haggard? You can't go wrong at all. And for those wondering where the classic Ernest Tubb and George Jones Christmas songs are...well, every time we post something by them, we get a smack down from their record labels. We're already on thin ice as it is. Sorry. But we hope we've more than made up for the glaring blank spot in our Holiday posts.
