Sonic Advent Calendar: Day 24 - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Originally penned for the musical "Meet Me in St. Louis" with Judy Garland, the kind of bleak "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" has long been one of my favorite holiday tunes, the cold melancholy of it all hitting me in just the right way. Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs released a version about a week ago, and it is appropriately moody. I've heard better versions (John Denver and Rowlf from The Muppets comes to mind), but this one will do just fine. Watch the video below...and try to get some sleep tonight.
