Christmas Love!

In the seasonal spirit, I thought I'd list some classic Christmas records that people can grab if they need to get in the festive mood:

1. 'What do you get a Wookie for Christmas (If he Already has a Comb)? - I don't know whta is on this or who it's by. But it deserves a mention.

2. Sufjan Stevens - Songs for Christmas: I don't know how prolific one man can be (unless you're Ryan Adams) but going on the fact that this is a compilation of 5 years of Christmas EPs from Mr Stevens, with both originals and reworkings of forgotten carols, it's a fair assumption that most of it's gold.

3. Ringo Starr - I Want to be Santa Claus: If you're going to go kitsch, bloody well do it properly, I say. Rockin' Rudolph is, of course, included.

4. Bootsy Collins - Christmas is 4 Eva: Christmas is time for a party, right? If your answer to this is a resounding 'Yes', then no Christmas record will shake your arse more than this. He really does turn the water into FUNK!

5. It's a tie for the fifth!
Colonel Sanders - Christmas with Colonel Sanders! vs. The Six Million Dollar Man - Hear 4 Exciting Christmas Adventures! May they forever fight to the death. You be the judge.
Merry Christmas to all.
