My Evergreen – Squirrel Nut Zippers

today’s non-traditional christmas tune is “my evergreen” from the squirrel nut zippers. the zippers are a north carolina band that pretty much throws a little bit of everything at you. for instance, “my evergreen” is very mccartney-esque. yet, their rendition of “sleigh ride,” which i’ll feature later in the month, is a dixieland sound — even leaning towards big band. both are from their 1998 cd, “christmas caravan.”

thanks for all of the people who have signed up on day one. i encourage all of you to of course.

(a quick word about the content of this christmas music blog, i’ll be featuring more than one song a day at times, and will certainly cover many different genres – so stay tuned.)
