Best Christmas song (IMO)

Normally I do not like new Christmas songs. I prefer the old favourites, and preferably done by the orig artists. Mean Mary James put out a song last year called “Ding Dong Day” that blew me away. IMO it is really a terrific song, as she is a terrific artist. She writes her own songs and plays umpteen different instruments. Do yourself a favor and check out the clip on youtube:

After checking out the somewhat ironic clip, try putting on headphones and listening to her voice.

The lyrics are really pertinent to these troubled times. She is a niche (bluegrass) artist who really should be better known.

Another excellent clip of hers on youtube is Sugar Creek Mountain:

I guess you could say I’m a fan of hers, YMMV
