Episode 357: Holidays Doth Rule

      No Comments on Episode 357: Holidays Doth Rule

As per tradition (at least from days of yore when we did episodes weekly), we’re using the week of Easter to add some more traditional Christmas music to our list. And it just so happens that both of this episode’s songs are from the same album, 2012’s Holidays Rule! Both songs were also composed by guys named Henry who were better known for other things, which I guess is also kind of a fun coincidence? Calexico’s take on King Henry VIII’s “Green Grows the Holly” is a breath of fresh air, but Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” as performed by The Civil Wars is just kinda… air.

This week’s ranking music is “The Holly and the Ivy” performed by Los Campesinos!
