Tell Me What You Want For Christmas - The 2014 Christmas Compilation

And so we come to the end of 2014, otherwise known as either The Year We Lost A Boatload of Great Actors or The Year We Lost Whatever Patience We Had Left With A Militarized Police Force, Racial Profiling, The Justice System, You Name It.  Either one of which (but especially the latter) can put a stake of holly in the heart of anyone’s Christmas cheer.

So here’s something musical to help turn that frown upside down—music to lift your spirits over the next couple of weeks—music to trim your tree to (if you haven’t done that already)—music to wrap your gifts to (and I KNOW you haven’t done that already)—music to make you  feel the warmth of Shane McGowan’s Birthday  The Day James Brown Died  The Night We Bombed The Crap Out of Hanoi  Christmas.

Enjoy, and Haddy Grimble, everybody.
