Well, it’s about that time of year again, isn’t it? Time for MORE CHRISTMAS RECORDINGS! Once again, all of the standard “traditions” are in place. This batch, however, developed a bit of a theme. When I picked these tunes last year (!) I decided to finally tackle both John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s Christmas songs (I figured we couldn’t have one without the other). So, why not do all pop songs this time around? Consequently, this is the longest batch of Christmas music I’ve made to this point. This set was tons of fun to make and may have launched a new tradition – quite a few people lent their voices (and, in one case, their guitar) to this batch. Enjoy!
