vintage 1999

At the moment, my fave Christmas song is Buck's rewrite of "Santa Baby" on their Christmas In My Heart 7" (Sympathy for the Record Industry). ('Think of all the groupies that I haven't kissed' comes to mind as one of the better altered lines)

But I'm also partial to Mary Margaret O'Hara's take on Blue Christmas on her Christmas EP (Koch).

By the way - does anyone else think that Rudolph's acceptance on the basis of his red nose for foggy Christmas eves means that he is generally rejected on clear Christmas eves (not to mention that he should be liked holistically, not just for one physical trait...of course, this brings to mind the question of why he isn't liked...I know all sorts of very popular people with physical oddities/what have you...or might I be overreading just a tad? :) )?
