HAPPY NON-DENOMINATIONAL APPROXIMATE WINTER SOLSTICE HOLIDAY!


My holiday of choice is Christmas, and pretty much always has been. Since I am basically a huge tradition-loving sap around winter break, I thought I'd perpetuate my own Christmas tradition of doing a huge music spam comprising my favorite songs of the year! Also because I'm ridiculous and love making extra work for myself, this year's spam follows in the footsteps of the last two and is structured in the same style as the carol The Twelve Days of Christmas. To put it briefly, the songs are assigned ranks from the gifts in the carol, going from most favorite -- the partridge in a pear tree -- to least, in order. That's 78 songs total, just enough to sum up a year's worth of awesome music.

AS USUAL, I think I just spent more than an hour working on something it will likely take you five minutes to enjoy. But I hope you enjoy it nonetheless! If nothing else, it's at least partially a reflection of my flist's music tastes, seeing as I ganked a lot of this music from you all in the first place :3 All 78 songs are in a .zip file downloadable [ HERE ] if you want them. Happy holidays!
