Crimson & Chanukah 2011

"Crimson & Chanukah" was a Tommy James & the Shondells vs Adam Sandler mashup from 2009 included on my holiday music collection "Mr. Fab His Bag O' Toys." Adrian from the globe-spanning mashup nightcub event Bootie covered it live by singing over a karaoke version of "Crimson and Clover," based on the Joan Jett version. He promised to record it. I saw him at Bootie a year ago and asked him about it. He forget! But here 'tis at last, track #6 on Boston's dj BC's long-running series of various-artist Xmas comps, and it is a lovely thing indeed (Thanks, Adrian!):

Santastic Six

But, hey, it ain't all about me - lots of other great stuff on this collection: Martinn's mashing of two Brenda Lee songs and a Dixieland band is the kind of head-spinning nuttiness that only the likes of People Like Us can pull off. And my SoCal homie Voicedude's "You're A Loser, Newt Gingrich!" oughtta get him on the Daily Show.
