|Christmas Funk, Aloe Blacc|
I baked cookies yesterday, which means Christmas music was playing most of the afternoon. I can’t share the cookies with you, but I can spread some auditory cheer. Here is my favorite playlist. I love some of the standards, but I definitely gravitate to original songs. I also like to mix my genres, so be prepared for both Run DMC and Dwight Yoakam.
Here you go, and Merry, Merry Christmas.
