My 2011 Christmas Music Mix

One of my favorite things to do at Christmas (well, any holiday or day really) is to make a fabulous mix tape... err cd... I mean playlist. I really miss the art of the mixtape. I always try to include some classics while searching out some random, less popular songs. It's a gift from the heart of my music snobbery.

If you want to download any of the songs, I linked them up with Amazon MP3 to make it a bit easier. A few songs can only be purchased in MP3 as part of the Now That's What I Call Christmas compilation, so I marked those and linked to the album. Hope you enjoy!
