Best Christmas Ever

The bestest christmas compilation this year, period, is Wish You Best Christmas Ever on the wonderful German Trikont-label. Odd covers (twang-y version of Wham's Last Christmas), strange instrumentals (Coconami's White Christmas) and a whole lotta roots rock, blues, mambo, soul and pop. Best title: It's So Chic to be Pregnant at Christmas, by Nancy White. This is such a great comp, it's hard to pick only two songs to get a taste. Put it high on your want-list.

Brenda Lee - I'm Gonna Lasso Santa Claus (yousendit)
Andrew Sisters - Christmas Island (yousendit)
