30 Days Out (From Christmas): Blues

santa_plays_blues1

Day 18 – This is about the time most people get the blues for Christmas.  You haven’t bought any presents yet, the economy’s going in the toilet and you spent all your money on booze.  You caught Santa sneakin’ out the back door and next thing you know, your baby’s left you for some douchebag in a Cadillac.  Let’s boogie woogie with Santa and have a party.  Because later, you’re going to be drinkin’ this Christmas and spendin’ a lonesome New Year’s Eve in jail.   That’s the blues.

    Hey, thanks for the Christmas Blues and the Louisiana flavored stuff.

    Just an FYI, the link for Christmas Date Blues is messed up.
    It goes to Lonesome Christmas Parts 1 & 2.

  2. Thanks, messin! Will try and fix that in the next day or so. Glad you like the blues and Louisiana music, it’s my favorite of all the Christmas tunes we have.

  3. Followup: Well, we had to take “Christmas Date Blues” out of commission due to some faulty wiring. Keep checkin’ back each day until Christmas for more holiday music!
