“Wakin’ up the reindeer, makin’ little kids cheer”

For my *final* seasonal post, a little ’60s punk rock cover:

“Don’t Believe in Christmas”
Pearl Jam

(right click, save target as)

This was one of the two songs on the Pearl Jam 2002 Christmas Single vinyl (ask me sometime to show you all of them; I’ve got the whole set and look for any excuse to bust ‘em out).

It is a cover of a song by The Sonics, a ’60s-era Tacoma, Washington punk band. This is a live version from the second night of Pearl Jam’s epic 2002 club shows at The Showbox in Seattle.

So jump around by the stockings and make a little mistletoe romance with this good-time tune.

Merry Christmas, guys. May we all remember how blessed we are.

  • Yeah!
    Merry Christmas to you too.

    Hope you’re enjoying those Notwist tunes.

    Thanks for the Christmas song.

    Enjoy the feasting.

  • Clint, this link is from last year and dead (have no idea how to help you with that Mac stuff) but all the PJ Christmas singles were re-posted at the beginning of December 2006, so that link is still live.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
