Merry Christmas! Or if you’re of the Jewish persuasion, Happy Hanukkah! There’s a host of other faiths I can also wish a Happy ____ to, so if you’re feeling bad for not being included in those holiday greetings, please fill in whatever you celebrate in the blank space here: Happy _____! I totally mean that, too. Pick Your Poison is in weekly mode for this week and next, to accomodate for everyone taking time off to spend with family and friends. Naturally I’ll also be doing the same. I hope you get all the gifts on your list this year. So for the last Pick Your Poison before Christmas, here’s a giant giveaway of holiday and non-holiday related mp3s and streaming songs. May it make the days ahead that much brighter and more delightful. Just so you know, due to the extensive number of songs in the Soundcloud section today, I’ve put those after the jump to help reduce the site loading time. Tracks I’ll recommend in this set come from Acid House Kings, ANR (covering Kelis), Candy Claws, Chicago’s own Dozens, Kathryn Calder, Pretty Good Dance Moves, D Lissvik’s remix of ceo, and Teen Daze’s remix of Young Liars. Paul McCartney and his good friend Eric Clapton take on the old standard “My Valentine” in the Soundcloud section, and songs from Folks and Kites are worth streaming too. Enjoy your holiday, and we’ll catch up one last time before the end of 2011!
