Song of the Day - Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga, featuring Space Cowboy

Since Christmas is only a week away, it's about time I started throwing in some more holiday music. But like last week's rare and unusual performance of Rockin Around the Christmas Tree by a young Miley Cyrus, I want to play Christmas tunes that are a bit on the obscure side.  Here's one that I'll bet many of you don't know.  It's a Gaga Christmas jingle from 2008 that's got the pop-dance sounds of Fame and Fame Monster.  Of course it's full of sexual innuendo, but it is different and it's pretty fun to listen to...

Song of the Day - Yellow Flicker Beat - Lorde

I finally, finally caught Mockinjay, Part I yesterday and it was simply put, awesome!  I tell ya, I love it when you get to see the characters and the action from books you've read come alive, and this, like the first two in this series, brings the words to life so well.  If you're a Hunger Games fan and you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for?  Oh, and this tune goes soooo well with the film...

Song of the Day - Mesmerized - Faith Evans

Have you ever heard about that thing
I mean, that real thing...

Here's a song to wake you up and get you going on a lazy Sunday.  This classic is heavy on disco beats, big on Ms. Evans' vocals, and a whole lotta fun...
