MERRY CHRISTMAS if you're into that sort of thing!


In the spirit of the holiday, I wanted to come up with a gift for you guys, 'specially since I haven't been posting very often lately. So I decided to start a tradition by doing another Christmas music spam, consisting of my favorite songs of the year. As I am hilariously deficient in mental facility I decided to follow last year's example and organize my favorite songs by assigning them to gifts from the carol The Twelve Days of Christmas. Accordingly, the songs (78 total) go from most favorite -- the partridge in a pear tree -- to least, in order. Any less and the music spam's too short, any more and I can't rate them properly, they're all equally awesome :|

ANYWAY this took ridiculous amounts of effort for a ridiculously small result, but I hope you can find something you enjoy in this list! (And I'm pretty sure you will seeing as I got loads of them from you guys in the first place. hurfadurf.) If you'd like to download all 78 songs, I uploaded a .zip file right [ HERE ]. Enjoy, and happy holidays!

ADDENDUM: Since Mediafire has decided to be a bitch and hate me, only about half the individual songs are uploaded so far. In the interest of putting this post up while it's still actually Christmas, I've left some of the songs without download links, but will be updating them throughout the night whenever possible. Sorry for the inconvenience! As well, in most cases I tried to upload mp3 versions of everything, but for some I just got lazy and didn't convert them. If you'd like an mp3 of a song and can't find it, just ask me and I'll convert it for you.

ADDENDUM PT 2: ALL LINKS ARE UP! Merry Christmas!

This has been an awesome Christmas so far. brb getting pie.
