My hard drive that contained all my Christmas music crashed earlier this year, so...gone that is. What are you folks putting together this year for your Christmas music?

Trans Syberian Orchestra is about as Christmas-y as I get. I'll play that every once in awhile, and may actually go and see them.

N'Sync's a cappella version of O Holy Night is a guilty pleasure for me... the arrangement is just so damn good.

There are five Very Special Christmas CDs. The compilation is from all 5. I think Blues Traveler is from #3, and Hootie is too. The John Popper stuff is from #4, which is the called "A Very Special Christmas Live".

The music for Blues Traveler's "Christmas" is Phish's "Divided Sky," btw. It's pretty cool.

My favorite Christmas albums:
Harry Connick, Jr. - When My Heart Finds Christmas
Nat King Cole - The Christmas Song
Frank Sinatra - Christmas Songs by Sinatra
Johnny Cash - Christmas with Johnny Cash
Elvis Presley - It's Christmas Time

Hahahahahaha...I remember...when I first started to get into jam bands beyond DMB and BT (the first two in the genre I listened to), I got something Phish, and it had Divided Sky on it, and I was like, "Holy Shit, they're covering Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" The irony was that they actually did play a few Christmas tunes in the middle of it, so I was even MORE sure they were just playing the BT song.

For anyone interested, I have a few Christmas items in my getfile. I started loading some new stuff this week. See below for info on that...

It's not a whole lot...but maybe for those who have other Christmas stuff in their getfile we can trade.
