Xmas Jam Countdown: The Long Winters, "Sometimes You Have to Work on Christmas (Sometimes)"
(Each day until Christmas, A to Z will be posting a Christmas/holiday-themed MP3 in honor of the festive season, in hopes of warding off the seasonal blahs. Check back every day for a new nugget of sonic bliss.)
This song is a Harvey Danger cover, and can be found on Peace on Earth: A Holiday Charity Album. Volume II in that series is now available for purchase from the same blog, It's Hard to Find a Friend. That disc contains songs by Oxford Collapse, Jealous Girlfriends, Pattern is Movement, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Anathallo, Jason Collett, AMerican ANalog Set, Jennifer O'Connor and Via Audio. (The latter act will be in town Friday night at the Billiken Club with David Bazan.)
