Playlist Dec. 24, 2005 (Holiday Show)

I had actually found three versions of Winter Wonderland, and although I wanted to play them all, I managed to contain myself by only playing two. Once I played the Hellogoodbye version, I yearned to hear the classic Annie Lennox version, because I like it so much more. The one I didn't play was The Cocteau Twins' rendition. Maybe next year!

Happy holidays everyone! Here's tonight's list:
