Countdown to Xmas - day 1

Welcome to the Licorice Pizza Second Annual Countdown to Xmas.

I’ve seen a few hits for the Xmas pages from last year – all of those links were on a different host and are long since dead and gone. I’m going to reup some of those songs over the next few days, as well as posting a few new ones I’ve gathered over the past 12 months.

One thing that hasn’t changed from last year is the South Florida weather. It’s a balmy 73 degrees as I sit writing this, and those in the know predict about the same for Christmas Day. I’m watching Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye in “White Christmas,” the little shopping I had to do is done, and, well, I suppose I’m about as ready for Christmas as I’m going to get.

To start things out right, I thought I’d roll out some Christmas music by Richie Blackmore. Surprisingly, this is not what you would expect from Mr. Blackmore. I didn’t know this until I found this EP, but he has a side project called Blackmore’s Night. The band is a Renaissance-inspired folk rock group featuring Blackmore and his wife, Candice Night.

And rounding things out, I’ve also got three servings of Christmas: Blue, White, and Merry. Take your pick.

Merry Christmas (extended version).mp3 Ramones

sorry, yves, I don't have it in MP3. I realized too late it was an M4P track. I think it'll play in most people's iTunes, I'm not sure if it will open in anything else.
