The A.G.’s Holiday Playlist

December 14, 2010 | By | COMMENTS

Maybe I’m weird, but I actually like holiday music; if it’s holiday music done right.
Every year I look forward to playing Sufjan Stevens’s “Songs for Christmas” and, most recently, a mix I made of songs that include some Sufjan Stevens songs and a bunch of others. I just posted the mix to iTunes so you can listen to 90 second samples of the songs (that’s a new feature! it used to be 30 second samples) and, if you like it, buy it. (I don’t get anything if you do, so don’t think I’m trying to sell you a bill of goods.) Here’s the link to my iTunes Playlist.

There are 3 songs that iTunes didn’t publish to the list, so if you’d like the complete Amateur Gourmet Christmas Playlist, you should add the following:
“Turkey Lurkey Time” from “Promises, Promises” comes between “Winter Wonderland/Silver Bells/White Christmas” by The Carpenters and “It’s Christmas! Let’s Be Glad!” by Sufjan.
“Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues comes between “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch” by Aimee Mann and “O Holy Night” by Sufjan.
And “A Fact Can Be A Beautiful Thing,” also from “Promises, Promises” comes between “Blue Christmas” by Loudon Wainwright and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Karen Carpenter.
Hope you enjoy this festive mix as you cook yourself a goose for Christmas dinner!
