If you're in the market for some great Christmas tunes for your gathering of choice this year, NPR's "Sound Opinions" has some fantastic, free picks for you.
Andy Cirzan has been compiling impossible-to-find Christmas tracks for decades. In the beginning, he made cassettes like all the cool kids did. But now he's moved on to .mp3's for your downloading ease.
His picks are sometimes weird, often catchy, and always memorable. This year, he's sharing a best-of from his early compilation tapes, with forgotten tracks you're never going to hear anywhere else like "Santa's Magical Bag," "Mars Wants Santa," and "Drunken Santa's Come to Stay With Us."
Check it out on Sound Opinion's site. They even include cover art so you can burn it and have all the track names at your fingertips.
