Top 5 Christmas albums

1. Bob Dylan – Christmas in the Heart (2009)
Go on, give it a go. Surprisingly, it's a lot of fun. My daughter, and amazingly, partner, love it.
2. Various Artists – A Christmas Gift for you from Phil Spector (1963)
Often called the best Christmas album ever. Released on the day JFK was assassinated.
3. Various Artists – A Very Special Christmas (1987)
The one with the Keith Haring cover. Features a fine selection of 80s recording artists from RUN DMC to Whitney Houston and Bruce Springsteen. A classic.
4. Low – Christmas (1999)
I'm sure it's good.
5. Vince Guaraldi – A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
Another one I haven't actually heard but is meant to be great.

Have a great Christmas and New Year, and I'll see y'all in 2010: the follow-up to 2001: A Space Odyssey that no one went to see.
