Gift Wrapped: 20 Songs That Keep On Giving
by Various Artists
Released: Dec 2009
Label: Warner Bros.
Warner Brothers dug through their stockings to collect Christmas and Hannukah songs by some of their biggest selling artists, along with a few newer acts (Foxy Shazam wins the prize for best name). Michael Buble, Jack's Mannequin, Dwight Yoakam and the Flaming Lips are all here, but we, in typical Scrooge-like rock-critic fashion, give top honors to Regina Spektor's "My Dear Acquaintance," a rare New Year's song.
