The 12 Days of Christmas Videos: Day 9
Nothing says Mele Kalikimaka quite like some good surf music. What would Christmas be without the lounge-like, spaghetti western sounds of a great surf band? Well, it would be cold. And without warmth to boot! California north coasters, the Aqua Velvets, thankfully have remedied that. With something like a dozen releases to their credit, still my favorite is a schmaltzy old classic. O Holy Night. Something about the twang that just works with this particular Christmas classic.
