Friday Random Five (#15)

Oy, it's the "Holiday", or whatever you want to call it, edition of the Random Five this week (whatever lights your menora or tree or whatever). Be safe. Be happy. Enjoy.

1- Jill Sobule returns to the Five once again this week on the strength of the generous offering of holiday tunes she recently posted on her website. "Merry Christmas From the Family" (MP3) is her version of a Robert Earl Keen song.

2- A blast from Christmas past: the Ramones' "Merry Christmas (I Don't Wanna Fight Tonight) (MP3).

3- Yo La Tengo: "It's Christmas Time" (MP3).

4-Marah: "New York Is a Christmas Kind of Town" (MP3).

5- Reverend Horton Heat: "Santa On the Roof" (MP3).

BONUS- Despite their name, the Decemberists sing no holiday songs. However, because they are Random Five residents all month long, we offer up this live version of ELO's "Mr. Blue Sky" (LIVE) (MP3), recorded this year in San Francisco.

unwrap. enjoy. break. forget about. attempt to return. throw away.
