Sorry if this is posted elsewhere, it just pop it in my head this is probably a great place to ask this, what are the most soulful and/or funkiest x-mas cuts? I'd like to load a set in my ipod to play while at the parents house and while driving around on the weekend and the such. I already loaded up the hip hop x-mas treats. Any ideas? mp3s accepted

    Here was my mercifully brief christmas set from this year:

    El Vez Blue Xmas (live) 7" Single Typical El Vez live mashup, singing Blue Xmas over some Rolling Stones (I forget which song). From a split 7"Little Alfred & the Linden Black Youth Choir K'N'K


    I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas 7" Single Wizdom
    Little Alfred sounds very much like little Michael Jackson

    Akim & the Teddy Van Production Comp. Santa Claus is a Black Man 7" Single Simtone
    Very young kid, hillarious tune. Featured on the John Waters Christmas mix.

    Clarence Carter Back Door Santa 7" Single Atlantic
    Speaks for itself.

    unfortunately, I don't have this as mp3 here, I might be able to post by tomorrow if all goes according to plan.

    back in my recordstore years the boss man tried to impose some level of conformity by making us play xmas music at least once every 2 hours (basically every 3rd cd played needed to be xmas).

    excruciating as that was, the staff pretty much stuck to classical renditions and this album:

    low




    to this day, this is probably the only xmas album i would ever buy.







    the binky 45 is pretty good though.

  • my 2 favs are "let the jingle bells rock" by sweet t and "wonderful christmas time" by paul mccartney. i think de la even sample the paul joint....

    if you like that you may want to look into the Bright Eyes Christmas album.

    Very traditional (no original compositions)

    a lot of songs are given a nice lo-fi treatment and others are so elequently performed that its just plain smile-inducing



  • this is and will always be the Greatest Christmas LP EVAR!





  • whats the x-mas record on seven b? isaac clarke or somethin? i'll have to dig it up, but i dont have an mp3, sorry, maybe someone else does.
