I Christmas Alone....the winter mix

Aimed at the first snow of the winter I am just about on time with the delivery of my winter mix, a depressing collection of songs to keep those cold days more bitter than sweet. A note: The idea for this mix was born during the making of Creature Comforts as I would come across songs I liked, but kept saying, "Too sad" as I tossed them back on the heap.

So for no reason other than my own amusement I offer you, "I Christmas Alone...Just Quietly Awesome" my attempt at one of the most depressing Christmas CDs of all time. I should also note the contributions of Bob Marley & The Wailers of all people, who curated this mix with me as I found several old songs of theirs that were just as sad as anything else you'd want to hear at 3 AM on a snowy night while you stare at the windows with a drink in hand, just waiting for the sharp scrape of a plow to come along and cut everyone's dreams of a snow day down to bare asphalt. Enjoy!
