Listen Up!  Microsoft has just discovered what a friend phoned to tell me their Computer Tech  has put up bulletins throughout their workplace that a New Virus gets into your e-mail and then sends you an e-mail which tells you that A FAMILY MEMBER IS TRYING TO CONTACT YOU

DO NOT OPEN.  IT WILL TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER. WHEN YOU START YOUR COMPUTER AGAIN, IT WILL DESTROY YOUR HARD DRIVE

I like a lot of the classic stuff.For newer Phil Spector's Xmas album of various wall of sound artists from the 60's is hard to beat as is the Beach Boys Xmas album from the same era.The one that drives me up a wall is Spike Jones and "All I want for Xmas is my two front teeth" .

Cute.  I kind of miss those Peanuts cartoons.  The dancing sequences were always the best.  I bought a nice box set of old stop-action Christmas cartoons for the little one this year, including Santa Claus is Coming to Town.  Bruce does perhaps the best rendition of the song,

I couldn't get "Santa is Coming" to work, but one of my old favorites is cranking away.

Thanks very much for the link.  Duly bookmarked.  All the classics are there.

The vintage Frosty the Snowman is a gem,

Merry Christmas to all! 

I see the vintage Bowie/Crosby duet of Little Drummer Boy is still considered one of the biggest mismatches in pop history,
