There was a time, almost 20 years ago, when i was a Bright Eyes devotee. For a couple of albums and EPs and then catching them perform as an opener for Stephen Malkmus, Oberst and Co. pretty much had me hanging on every word, as pretentious and melodramatic as they could sometimes be. And during that heyday, they recorded a Christmas album, called succinctly enough, "A Christmas Album." Check out their (his?) version of "Blue Christmas" below.
