i have listened to 'the lights and buzz' by jack's mannequin many, many times, but for some reason i had never acknowledged the fact that it is kind of a christmas song. that's until i listened to it on this christmas cd... 'gift-wrapped: 20 songs that keep on giving' [which is an amazing and quirky holiday cd].
looking at it, you would think that it had christmas classics by dean martin or dolly parton [i don't know, just go with it...], but once you push play, you're pleasantly surprised by the quirkyness of it. it has upbeat remakes by regina spektor, my chemical romance, and tyler hilton - as well as originals from melee and relient k. if you're into country, the cd even has songs from randy travis and george strait :]
so if you get tired of the same ole' christmas songs that play over and over on the radio, check this album out - you won't be disappointed!
