Paul McCartney‘s “Wonderful Christmastime” either evokes fond memories around this time of year or feels like a dagger of repetition in your head as it soundtracks your shopping battles in your local mall. Here are two flips of McCartney’s yule tune that give it a fresh feel.

There’s no denying the Phil Spector influence on Wizzard’s “Rock’n'Roll Winter (Looney’s Tune)”; the song is catchy like the flu, the sound is absolutely huge, and the lyrics are pure nostalgia for the innocence of youth. Amazing.

Skeewiff are at it again with the second freebie in their 12 Days of Xmas Super Soul giveaway. Their fusion of Shawn Lee’s “Soul Boots” with their own “I Got Soul” has rendered a cheeky uptempo breakbeat mover in the classic Skeewiff mode. Try to sit still!

Merry DMX-mas!

During a recent appearance on New York’s Power 105.1FM, Ruff Ryder captain DMX was sweet-talked into singing a beloved Christmas carol. Well, his enthusiasm for “Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer” seems to not require much cajoling.
