mid-week (holiday) music moment: Blue Christmas

Elvis Presley - Blue Christmas

 That's right, it's holiday take over time for the MWMM!

This has always been one of my favorite Christmas songs, and it's one that brings back pleasant but also nearly crippling feelings of nostalgia every time I hear it. (We all have those, right?) Instantly I'm transported to the kitchen of my grandparents house on Christmas Eve night, after dinner, fire going, dancing and singing with my mom, my aunts and my grandpa, while my dad and uncles smoke cigars on the porch. Just listening to it I can smell the rich, spicy smoke mixing with the leftover smells of dinner and evergreen pine needles...

Even though it's a little ways away yet, I can't wait to be home again.

P.S. - Can we all just have a major swoon for vintage Elvis for a second? Good lord.


  1. I love this post, even though it makes me a bit home sick. You sound like you're from the south, no?


  2. Love Elvis in all his leather glory.
