Happy Holidays to the Funk & Beans community! We love the holidays because we get to be close to our loved ones and create a few new memories before another year closes out. But – we don’t always love the music that seems to float ubiquitously in and around public spaces.
Since this is our first Holiday season as Funk & Beans, we’ve decided to make a list of our favorite holiday songs that didn’t make it to the Muzak box rotation.
Adam Sandler – The Chanukah (SNL – 1994)
Eartha Kitt – Santa Baby (RCA – 1953)
Twisted Sister – I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus (Razor & Tie 2008)
Bob Rivers – Walking Around in Women’s Underwear
Flaco Jiménez & Freddy Fender – Frosty the Snowman
Murder City Devils – 364 Days (Sub Pop 2001)
Freddie King – Christmas Tears (King Records)
Annie Lennox – God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (La Lennoxa 2010)
David Bowie & Bing Crosby – The Little Drummer Boy/ Peace on Earth (RCA 1977)
