Xmas 2013 mixtape: Ho, Ho, Ho, and Ho

See what I did there? I added a fourth Ho just because this is that much better.

2013 xmas

Last year my yearly Christmas music mix – yeah, the outer-space themed one – intentionally jumped the shark. It was fun to make, but kind of an ambitious mess, in the end. But the holidays are not supposed to be that challenging, so this year’s is back to just being fun again. I’m not trying to be eclectic just for it’s own sake here. Whether it’s a soulful doo-wop recording or a batty Major Lazer mashup banger, I want a Christmas song that will stand the test of time, so that this can be listened to now and also in the future. And I’ve got some other unlisted surprises including a Lou Reed greeting from the 80s mixed in here, so play away.

All my previous mixes are here – the 2010 one might be my favorite, with some stuff I snagged before it apparently disappeared forever – and this year’s can be listened to or downloaded below, or direct from Soundcloud. Enjoy, and happy holidays.
