Throughout December, most of these songs are going to be of the festive variety. I'm spreading Christmas cheer around our house and Lovely Husband would kill me if I turned our home into Target with Mariah Carey on repeat all day.
I've been listening to Cory James' 'A Very Elitist Christmas' over at 8tracks.com, so I won't be linking my list below. Some are covers but there are quite a few originals in here that I'm liking more than I thought I would. I've added extras to the end that cropped up elsewhere.
