Actually Good Holiday Music That Is Not 'Little Altar Boy' From Your Wonket

News

[Editrix's note: Kris Benson, in addition to being a doctoral student and Wonket blogger, is actually also a noted DJ -- this is a true thing -- which is how we first met her years ago. So if she is spinning, you will be listening. Happy Christmas.] This is the ONE DAY where we give you a respite from depressing (yet hilarious) news and happenings, so treasure it. It is also the ONE DAY where we give you holiday playlists, which is a nice bonus. Above we have Juan GarcĂ­a Esquivel, his piano, and his orchestra giving you lounge sounds off his 1962 album "More of Other Worlds, Other Sounds." After the fold: holiday music from Don Tiki, Herb Albert & The Tijuana Brass, and many more!


From the land where palm trees sway, who but Bing Crosby to bring you Mele Kalikimaka?

Martin Denny's exotic rendering of Greensleeves, a Renaissance tune about the beheaded Anne Boleyn.

And for the song so nice we are giving it to you twice: Mele Kalikimaka by Arthur Lyman.

Henry Mancini, his orchestra, and his chorus doing "Carol for Another Christmas."

Vince Guaraldi plays an instrumental version of "Christmastime is Here" along with his jazz trio.

Frank Sinatra inviting you to "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

And finally, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass bringing you "The Christmas Song."

But what the hell can we do about it, we are all keening, beyond calling our senators and representatives and posting sadness on Twitter, the latter of which is of dubious utility to anyone, and mostly depressing?

There are perks to being the only Harvard professor willing to shill for the Bush League Mussolini. Everyone else has to haul ass to the Fox studio and sit for hair and makeup. Not Alan Dershowitz! He just parks his laptop in Pee Wee's playhouse and Skypes in that rant. Is he even wearing pants? We hope never to find out!
