Bummer Xmas Mixes

For those of you who can't stand the saccharine sweetness of the Holidays, here's some alternative listening...
"A lump of coal for your Festivus sock"

1). Xmas Is For Mugs - Graham Parker
2). Back Door Santa - Clarence Carter
3). What Do The Lonely Do At Xmas? - The Emotion
4). 12 Days of Waffle House - The Waffle House Singers
5). Who Took The Merry Out of Xmas? - The Staples Singers
6). Merry Xmas From The Family - Robert Earl Keen

This compilation was a gift from the lovely and talented A.J. Michel of Syndicate Product, using Festivus as the focus of this tight little package of Grinchiness... it's become one of my favorites.

Thought I'd add a bonus - part II of a Millennium Christmas Tape mix I did a few years ago, Side B focusing on "Bummer Xmas" songs:

Bummer edition

01) Christmas Spirit?! - The Wailers
02) Don't Believe In Christmas - The Sonics
03) Santa Came Home Drunk - Clyde Lasley & the Cadillac Baby Specials
04) Christmas - Remy Zero
05) Christmas Eve Can Kill You - The Everly Brothers
06) Please Come Home For Christmas - Southside Johnny Lyon
