(THE SECOND OF THREE SPECIAL CHRISTMAS EPISODES!)
First up, the band Corporal Blossom
did their combination of many different white christmases into one glorious rendition of "White Christmas" which can be found on their Christmas album Mutated Christmas
) and on the Stay Free Magazine
cd compilation Illegal Art
. Then we heard Stevie Wonder
himself with his classic "What Christmas Means to Me" from A Motown Christmas
) and probably on some other album I don't have. Next we heard Dallas' own Dave Little
with his novelty song "Dysfunctional Family Christmas" from his album Another Leggy Super Model.
(His website was up until, literally, like a week ago. I don't know how you can get a copy of it now. Maybe he'll pay network solutions and it'll come back up).
Then The Brian Setzer Orchestra
covered the Les Brown & his Band of Renown
version of "The Nutcracker Suite" from their Boogie Woogie Christmas
). And lastly, topping off the show with a classic that's worth tacking on to the end, The Pogues
(with special guest Kirsty MacColl
) did "Fairytale of New York" from their album If I Should Fall From Grace with God
), and their greatest hits record (Amazon
) which is good good good.
