'Tis the season for using my Frank eating cats icon, folks! Just like last year, I've got a bunch of cool Christmas songs for you to download and enjoy. I've been listening to these and last year's picks (still available) non-stop while decorating my house, they're kind of all pretty fabulous. So download a few individual songs, download the whole zip, whatever you want. We've got your originals, your standards, your covers, your hymns. These were a bitch to upload for some reason, so let me know if any of them are messed up, particularly the zip file. Please right-click and save-as or else you'll destroy my bandwidth. Enjoy! Please comment if you download.

Taking the whole thing. Very slowly, haha. :)
It is weird, that I had never heard of Frightened Rabbit until just the other day, and now I have heard of them twice! How did you come across them?

I stumbled across them months ago in my search for cool music! I don't even remember how, but they are super awesome.

Snagged this! Thank you so much! I listened to last year's mix just the other day. <3

Snagged a few, thanks!

Is Frightened Rabbit the best? I keep discovering new things about their music and I've had their album for a year. I can't wait for the new one.

I've seen Frightened Rabbit a couple of times (a friend is a big fan) and they are pretty awesome =)

You are amazing. I was seriously lacking good Christmas songs. :)

Downloaded this year's and last year's mixes to get into the spirit while baking cookies. Thanks for sharing!

Umm, I hope you don't mind, I was looking at the com after checking out the eonderful looking mike/kevin mix for the Bonus-a-thon and I couldn't resist downloading both the christmas mixes. I never get tired of Christmas music, especially different Christmas music :)
Jun. 9th, 2010 12:45 pm (UTC)
