Quick Hitters:: Christmas Party!

Well now, it's Christmas Eve, I find myself with a spare few minutes, so I thought I'd leave you fine folks with a couple musical treats before signing off for the year. The first is a version of Baby It's Cold Outside done by two of the Hill's favorite Halifax (by way of PEI) singer-songwriters, Jenn Grant and Daniel Ledwell. It's from Grant's performance during last year's In The Dead of Winter Festival, and it's really rather fun (coincidently, you can find the schedule for IDOW 09 right here if you're interested). Why not continue the fun with a Jenn Grant rendition of Silver Bells? Exactly I thought you'd agree.

It isn't Christmas here on the hill until someone posts some Boney M, so let me take care of that right now, with their awesome Afro-German disco stylings in the form of their dual threat Marys Boychild & Oh My Lord. Man, I love this. But then again, I have a tremendous affection for Boney M Christmas songs, and if your parents also had Boney M vinyl when you were growing up, you likely do too.

I'm starting a new tradition here on the hill by posting as Christmas selection from our favorite duo and yours: Daryl Hall & John Oates. Their version of Jingle Bell Rock is holiday magic at its most magical, surely you agree. So enjoy these songs, have yourself a happy Christmas, a great new year, and I'll catch you on the hill in '09.
