Deck the Random 

My taste in holiday music is, er, idiosyncratic - so here's some normal (?) stuff:
1. "Epic" (Faith No More)
2. "The Black Angel's Death Song" (Velvet Underground)
3. "She Sheila" (Producers)
4. "I'll Keep It With Mine" (Fairport Convention)
5. "Hooked On a Feeling" (Blue Swede)
6. "Isn't Life Strange" (Moody Blues)
7. "Famous Flower of Serving Men" (Martin Carthy)
8. "Tenderness On the Block" (Shawn Colvin)
9. "Accidentally Like a Martyr" (Warren Zevon)
10. "Submission" (Sex Pistols)

I kind of like how the Shawn Colvin tune (which is a cover of a Warren Zevon song) came up right before Warren himself.

And, a special feature, in recognition of the holiday today:
The Festivus Song
(sung to the tune of "Oh, Canada")

Oh Festivus!
Our humble holiday.
Serenity Now is our only goal today.
With glowing hearts we see thy shining pole,
No tinsel there to distract our souls!

From far and wide,
Oh Festivus, to air grievances we’re free.
Thy feats of strength are glorious to me.
Frank Costanza, we tip our hats to thee.
Oh Festivus, we’ll pin you first, you’ll see.

The Human Fund - Money for people

Here's wishing you and yours the best of the holiday season (whatever holiday you celebrate).
