I ended up with a playlist I kept coming back to as I wrote Comfort and Joy, and I decided it was worth sharing!

Zip file can be found here [megaupload].


1. Whatever Happened to Christmas - Aimee Mann
Whatever happened to Christmas, bells in the streets were ringing,
Whatever happened to the singing, the songs we used to know.

A song for Scrooge.

2. It Was Simple Then, Spamalot - from Carols for a Cure
Together on Christmas we sang
It was simple then
With a candle in my hand
I heard my daddy singing
It was simple then

Caroling in Georgia

3. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Straight No Chaser
From God our heavenly father
A blessed angel came

Caroling in Georgia

4. Sleep Well, Little Children - Rosemary Clooney
Sleep well, little children
Wherever you are
Tomorrow is Christmas
Beneath every star...

David's Lullaby

5. God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Mannheim Steamroller
Spock & Nyota's dance

6. (Everybody's Waitin' For) The Man With The Bag - Kay Starr
He'll make this December the one you'll remember
The best and the merriest you ever did have

Leonard & Gaila's dance

7. Traditions of Christmas - Mannheim Steamroller

8. Mistletoe - Colbie Callat
Fake plastic Mistletoe
Wrap me in a great big bow
And tear me apart

Jim's Surprise

9. A Baby Just Like You - John Denver
Oh little angel, shining light
You've set my soul to dreaming
You've given back my joy in life
You've filled me with new meaning

Watching Joanna

10. The Atheist Christmas Carol - Vienna Teng
It's the season of eyes meeting over the noise
And holding fast with sharp realization
It's the season of cold making warmth a divine intervention

Learning Who's Missing

12. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Michael Whalen
Waiting for Spock

12. Comfort and Joy - Simon & Garfunkle
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
"What’s the date? Not the stardate, the actual date."

13. Darlin' (Christmas Is Coming) - Over the Rhine
Darlin, Christmas is coming
Salvation Army bells are ringing
Darlin, Christmas is coming,
Do you believe in angels singing?
Darlin, the snow is falling
Falling like forgiveness from the sky

Wow, someone who knows Over the Rhine! :) They're so "indie" that it's rare to find someone else familiar with them - good mix!

I just started listening to Inland Territory and am in love with Vienna Teng. I'm definitely going to have to listen to this.
