I’ve started a yearly tradition of making Christmas mixes around the holidays — ok, last year was the first time (mix re-upped — check it!), but I’ve gone and done it again. Here’s my 2008 mix.

  6. J. Dilla – Hannukah Song?
  7. Al Green – It Feels Like Christmas
  8. The Descendents – Christmas Vacation

  10. Barrington Levy – Christmas Day
  11. Clarence Carter – Back Door Santa
  12. Los Destellos – Para Elisa
  13. Yo La Tengo – Rock N Roll Santa
