'Tis the season, and my Christmas music playlist is in the Sunday Inquirer A & E section. That's here. Retro soul man Mayer Hawthorne's sweetly sad version of Vince Guaraldi and Lee Mendelson's "Christmas Time Is Here" is on it. You can download the track by Hawthorne, who opines "all the best Christmas songs were written by Jews, and Chanukah songs suck," for free here, and hear it below.
