    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

    … on Our Christmas Wish a Cancer Free World (iTunes | Spotify). I wouldn’t call myself a fan of this song, but I can get down with this funky blues version. Real down.

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

    1. The Crane Wives – “Winter Song”

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

    …on A Very Crane Wives Christmas EP (Bandcamp). I dig this folky take on Sara Bareilles’ original.

    2. Amy Stroup – “You Make The Cold Disappear” 

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

    … on You Make the Cold Disappear EP (for free on NoiseTrade). I was torn between posting this one and “Wishes Come True” from the same EP, so make sure to get it.

    3. John Pringle – “Christmas in Bruges”

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

    … a single (iTunes | Spotify).

    4. Jeremih – “You’re Mine”

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

    … a single (iTunes | Spotify). This one gets stuck in my head just like “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” but it’s a lot more appropriate…

    5.  Dean Martin – “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm”

    Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

    … on Christmas With the Rat Pack (iTunes | Spotify). Don’t forget about these perfect classics. This one in particular just transports me to a Christmas party in the ’50s, and I look fabulous as I gaze over the New York City skyline and sip a martini…
