christmas mix: if you want to see a miracle

house show: slingshot cash

I’ve been making what I call a Christmas mix — that is, not holiday songs but a mix made at the holidays — since 1997; first they were tapes, then for a few years cds, and finally, in the digital age, the last seven nine ten eleven years have been downloadable zip files, and this year is no exception. These are songs — frequently but not necessarily released in 2015 — that meant something to me this year, for various reasons, and they are for you. The whole shebang is available as a zip file [here] (110MB, .zip).

Happy holidays, happy 2015, happy these are great songs — whatever floats your boat. This is from me to you. 2015 wasn’t half bad, and it was mostly more than good. Here’s to 2016.

If you creep about lurking and you only comment on one post all year, this would be a good one. I’m just sayin’. ♥

  1. Langhorne Slim – Changes: i’m going through changes / ripping out pages / i’m going through changes now
  2. Fort Frances – Anonymous: let’s be the philosophy in a book that no one will ever read
  3. Frank Turner – Get Better (Acoustic): may i always see the road rising up to meet me / and my enemies defeated in the mirror behind
  4. Jason Isbell – If It Takes A Lifetime: i keep my spirits high, find happiness by and by / if it takes a lifetime
  5. Ryan Adams – Shake It Off: it’s like i got this music in my body and it’s gonna be alright
  6. Rhett Miller – Reasons To Live: and it is what it is / i have found reasons to live
  7. Thea Gilmore – Coming Back To You: it’s the laughter in your eyes / it’s the whisper of surprise / gonna see me through / keeps me coming back to you
  8. Kacey Musgraves – Biscuits: mend your own fences and own your own crazy / mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy
  9. Dar Williams – FM Radio: maybe queen needs a clarinet player
  10. Blitzen Trapper – Rock And Roll (Was Made For You): rock and roll won’t ease your mind / but you’ll find it’ll ease your soul
  11. Genevieve – Colors: i wake up thinking bout my purpose / and wonder if i’m really worth it
  12. Rachel Platten – Fight Song: this is my fight song / take back my life song / prove I’m alright song / my power’s turned on
  13. Quiet Hollers – Cote D’Azur: it was a good old time for sure
  14. Josh Ritter – Getting Ready To Get Down: if you want to see a miracle, watch me get down
