Three Christmas videos

Merry Christmas.

It's a low-key Christmas here at Casa Clicks & Pops (as it is in a lot of homes this year). There's no pithy story to go with that -- it is what it is. And things will get better (and that, too, is what it is.)

Meanwhile... it's Christmas Day. And while I'd love to retell A Christmas Carol as a parable of the downfall of the music business, I just don't have the energy right now (although I do like the idea of the "Ghost of MP3s Past").

So... meanwhile...

It's no secret that I don't consider it really to be Christmas without Darlene Love's "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)."

And also these three songs.

The Kinks' "Father Christmas":

XTC's "Thanks for Christmas" (which I wrote about here last year).

And John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War is Over)" -- embedding is disabled, so click on the link to listen.

So raise a cup (metaphorical or otherwise) to the blessings of the season. And may your new year be happy, healthy, productive, and safe (and may all your vinyl have just enough clicks & pops that you know it was listened to and well-loved).
