In Lily’s honor:
1. Fairytale of New York by The Pogues/Kirsty McColl.
2. All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey
In honor of the Dyker Heights/Brooklyn house that times its outdoor Christmas lights to this song, so if you drive by their house and tune in your radio to the AM station they set up for the lights, you can experience some dazzling, random Christmas light entertainment. (This is true!)
3. Calamity Song by The Decemberists.
For Dash, and the Great Glitterskating Massacre in The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily.
4. Lebkuchen by German group called die Bubbels.
Yes, I did just now find it on the Internet. Because, cookies!
5. This Christmas by Donny Hathaway.
This author’s personal fave holiday song by her favorite male singer.
For a dash of Dash
1. Fairytale of New York covered by Bill Bragg and Florence Welch.
Because Rachel claimed the original first. But this version is still great.
2. River by Joni Mitchell.
Because sometimes the holidays can be really depressing, if you’re not feeling the spirit.
3. We’ll Both Go Down Together by The Decemberists.
For those times when you and the person you love are thrown in jail after catching a baby.
4. Every Day I Write the Book by Elvis Costello.
Perfect to have on your headphones as you search through the bookstore.
5. Talk Me Down by Troye SIlvan.
If you look closely amidst all of Dash’s indie tunes, you’d find this hidden within.
