Crying on the Dancefloor (Xmas mix)

Tomorrow's show will feature a small selection of indie christmas tunes (probably a good dose of Sufjan Stevens' many Christmas classics). In advance, I'd like to feature this Christmas mix that Johan Agebjorn made for At 36 minutes its perfect for an at-work listen but a bit too long for my radio show, so here you go:

I especially like the ~28 minute mark where the Nixon track leads up to everyone's holiday favorite, A-ha's "Take on Me." Unfortunately, the subsequent Sally Shapiro bonus track is kindof lame.

1. Fake: "Empty Garden" (Sound of Scandinavia) 1984
2. Valerie Dore: "Get Closer" (Merak Music) 1984
3. Sally Shapiro: "Skating In The Moonshine" (Paper Bag / Permanent Vacation) 2007
4. Squash Gang: "I Want An Illusion" (Indalo Music) 1986
5. Sandra: "Around My Heart" (Virgin) 1989
6. Angie Care: "Your Mind" (Merak Music) 1984
7. Nicolas Makelberge: "Dying In Africa" (Rico) 2006
8. Nixon: "Anorak Christmas" (Benno) 2001
9. A-ha: "Take On Me" (WEA) 1984

Merry Christmas!
