Smashing Pumpkins - Christmas Time

While I was out and about, I came upon this song playing in the store and used the Shazam app (one of my favorite apps! ) to figure out who was singing it. It's Christmas Time by the Smashing Pumpkins. As much as I enjoy the holiday spirit, I can hit Christmas Carol overload easily so it was a bit refreshing to hear a different tune:

Anybody got other holiday songs that are a bit off the grid?

Voodoo Girl

My friend Mike just released this song and video for Voodoo Girl:

It's a hypnotically ambient electro jazz tune. After reading the inspiration behind the song, I really dig the story of the violin in it.  (Side note: I'd like to think I've got the limber moves like the dancer in the video but sadly, I'm sure I do not.)
