As the cold winter rain turns to sleet and gradually to snow where I’m at today, here’s one that I think perfectly captures that blissful calm serenity that seems to exist in the world during a slowly falling snow. Perfect for sitting back and unwinding from the holiday hustle and bustle for a bit.

Jimi Hendrix turned it up for his version, Tori Amos turned it way down for hers, and The Dandy Warhols are taking it down the river where tomorrow never knows for a psychedelic spin on an old classic today.

A Christmas ditty from one of the truly underated songwriters of today. John Wesley Harding has a flair for words with a twist of humor that is pretty much unrivalled amongst his peers. His new album, Who Was Changed And Who Was Dead , which I believe is his fifteenth, is set for a March 2009 release and is definitely one you should watch out for. I know I’ll be buying it for sure.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, a line that has become so synonymous with Christmastime. Does anyone even carry on this tradition anymore ? It’s one of the winter time season holiday memories of my youth up until the time I was about 5 or 6 when we moved into a new house that didn’t have a fireplace anymore and it just kind of faded away.
