Songs of Christmas — A Baker’s Dozen

Nothing sets the stage for the holiday season like seasonal songs. Here are a few of my favorites for your enjoyment featuring everyone from Aaron Neville to John Lennon to classic monster movie heavy Christopher Lee — with a good, heavy dose coming from my old home in Austin.

These tunes range from traditional songs beautifully rendered to modern satires, to songs of hope and joy.

We’ll kick off this collection with several from the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar, another holiday tradition.
