Mistletoe Mess Around

Good gravy, what if we put all this energy into posting all year 'round?  Regardless, it's Xmas!  Good times are coming.

Today's yule logs take a decided shift into bar band territory, with some nifty tunes that hang neon bar-lights around their Santa Claus suits.  Let's take a listen....

Danny Barnes used to be (or still is) in the seminal Bad Livers.  Here, his banjo expertise (of which he is an acknowledge master) is on display in a low-down, beats-driven Christmas lament. 

Star and Micey, who we got to see not too long ago, in a great show, go traveling and drinking on a Christmas Eve in one of our great cities.   

Marah, who recorded one of our favorite records of all time, "Let's Cut the Crap and Hook Up Later On Tonight", chime in with an Xmas ode to the greatest city in the world.

And Scott Miller, formerly of the V-Roys,  lends his Holiday voice in a rather suggestive number, where Virginia finds out there's a Santa Claus, and she's not disappointed.

Santa's a Banjo fiend.

Danny Barnes: All Alone For Christmas (mp3)

Star and Micey: A Memphis Christmas (mp3)

Marah:  New York is a Christmas Kind of Town (mp3)

Scott Miller: Yes, Virginia (mp3)

Thanks for stopping by.

Love your choices for Christmas Mp3's! A big Mahalo, Mele Kalikimaka & Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! While I'm not Hawaiian I do live here. For anyone not up on your Hawaiian language I said: "Thank-you, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year".

Love your site... this is my 4th or maybe 5th year visiting, but first time commenting. My wife loves holiday music & every year she compiles a CD to give to friends, family & work associates... and usually I can find a songs or maybe 2 from you that make to the disc. She's already compiled this years disc, but the things you're posting will help out with next year.

Please keep up the good work, and once again thanks for all your hard work.
