Song of the Day: PUTS and Black Milk Flip Macca for Christmas

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.

First up is West Coast underground legends People Under The Stairs with “Holiday Party,” spinning a warm tale of Hennessy-spiked egg nog and rap tapes under the tree.

A couple of years ago, Detroit rapper and producer Black Milk enlisted Melanie Rutherford for the sexy and soulful “Simply Having.”

And as a bonus, here’s De La Soul‘s “Simply”. It’s my favorite of these three flips, as well as the first to be released back in 2001. While it isn’t a Christmas song, it’ll definitely set off your holiday party. Dave’s Nice’n’Smooth impressions in his verses are hilarious.
