Grinch Approved Holiday Playlist.

If you know me at all you know that I'm not the biggest Christmas fan. There's a lot of reasons why, that I'm not going to go into here, but needless to say I'm kind of a Grinch. Now, I wouldn't be looting the Who's houses, but I would probably be sitting on my front porch in a rocker drinking a cold beer watching the Green One's shenanigans without putting a stop to them. What? Those Who's are loud what with all of their singing and love and friendship and whatnot.

I have thawed a smidge though. I put together a CD for work based off of the fact that we were all tired of hearing all of the same music on the local station broadcasting 24 hour a day Holiday music, and the fact that a friend of mine is inexplicably in love with "I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas" and said radio station wouldn't play it.

So. Here, for your pleasure, is an Erin approved, Grinch accepted Holiday playlist.

CLARK: Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse. Ha!
