Merry Christmas

The annual tradition here at the Curmudgucation Institute is to share the updated version of the Christmas Youtube playlist. The selections are chosen to be a hair off the beaten path, because by now the beaten path is really beaten, and the list also reflects my appreciation of jazz and brass. I also like to think that's a nice reminder of what a varied species we are. And this year, I also skewed more toward the perky, because lord knows we could use a little perk these days.

For those of you who like listening to the Spotify, here's the listening list that my extended family came up with for Pandemic Christmas. 

And if you want a real challenge, here's an hour and fifteen minutes of various versions of Jingle Bells. Jingle Bells has nothing to do with Christmas at all; it's more a 19th century precursor of "Little Deuce Coupe" or "I Get Around," a musical tribute to the awesomeness of fast cars and cute girls. It's a song that I believe persists, as some songs do, because musicians like to play (and play with) it.

So if Christmas is your thing, have a wonderful day. If it's not, have a wonderful day.
