Santa Claus Is Coming...

It's December 3, and I haven't posted any Christmas songs yet this year. Let's fix that...

Like a lot of music aficionados, I pick up a lot of weird CDs if it looks interesting and it's cheap enough. Quite a while back I got a copy of
MAS! A Caribbean Christmas Party for like two bucks. It was put out by Rykodisc, who's stuff usually doesn't suck, and I'm always up for adding something new to my Christmas music library. Honestly, most of the CD didn't make much of an impression, except for this song. It popped up on my ipod yesterday and immediately brought a huge smile to my face. I could try to describe it to you, but words don't do it justice. You just have to hear it. Seriously. It's completely awesome, and one of my absolute favorite Christmas tracks.

Joseph Spence - "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" (mp3)

Apparently this song was recorded in Boston just a few days after the Bahamas born Spence saw snow for the first time in his life. Knowing that makes this performance even better.


For some reason my computer isn't letting me hear ANY of your mp3 links... It was working fine after you sent me the info on how to reset my default to the media player. Just thought you should know incase it's not my computer.
You suck at the internet. The links are working fine.
