I may be contradicting myself here, offering a counterpoint to even my own holiday musical offerings, but if the onslaught of Christmas cheer has got you in a funk, may I suggest...a little funk?
Just a little. A little bit of soul. A groove to keep the feet tapping. A devil-may-care attitude of seasonal joie de vivre. Trust me on this one, dear friends. This mix is made for parties and shindigs and hootenannies and cooking meals and togetherness and laughter and mirth and, finally, merriment of the highest degree.
From my heart to yours:
This one's not mixed down into a single track, but I did take great care with the track order, so don't be the knucklehead who doesn't take the same care to organize once the iTunes import is complete.
