And now, on this Day After Christmas Eves’ Eve, I present to you my Cynical Christmas Mix:

  1. Father Christmas – The Kinks
  2. Sometimes You Have To Work On Christmas (Sometimes) – Harvey Danger
  3. I’ve Got Some Presents For Santa – Sarah Taylor & Bill Mumy
  4. Fairytale of New York – The Pogues
  5. Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt
  6. Christmas Song – Adam Sandler
  7. Holiday In Cambodia – Dead Kennedys
  8. Another Auld Lang Syne – Dan Fogleberg
  9. Christmas At Ground Zero – Weird Al Yankovic
  10. Punk Rock Christmas – Sex Pistols
  11. Christmas At Ground Zero – Weird Al Yankovic
  12. I Won’t Be Home For Christmas – Blink 182
  13. A Spaceman Came Travelling – Chris De Burgh
  14. Christmas Wrapping – The Waitresses
  15. So This Is Christmas – John Lennon
  16. River – Joni Mitchell
  17. Snowmiser Song – Mr. Snowmiser
  18. Heatmiser Song – Mr. Heatmiser

I’m pretty sure that all of the Seven Deadly Sins are well represented there, along with the Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse. It includes a few of the saddest songs I know… Perfect for sitting at home on Christmas Eve, drinking heavily, and wrapping presents for the special ones in your life. Especially the drinking part.

I’d love to comment specifically on some of the songs, but I’ve got to run down to the corner store and pick up more mixers. Luckily I laid in a good stock of Johnny Walker Red (it’s booze in a Christmas color!) for tonight’s wrapping extravaganza…
