Tupelo Honey Playlist 12/14/10

I love finding Christmas songs that aren't Christmas songs. The old standards are just that - old! There's plenty of good new holiday tunes but the ones I really love are the ones that have nothing to do with Christmas but put me in the mood. Some examples: The Pretenders -"2000 Miles," Joe Henry - "I Flew Over Our House Last Night."

Well I just came across a new favorite. The tune is "Upstairs" from Kevin Brown's new CD The County Primaries. Give it a spin and see if you get the same holiday feeling.

Till Next Week
