Oh....I love the playlist! I wish I had seen this earlier! but like you said, they are so great why not listen all year round? Im totally gonna look some of these up. P.S. I love the old crooners too, my guilty pleasure is Johnny Mathis, If you want I have my 2008 Christmas mix up on my blog too (even though it is after christmas!) It looks like your trip to europe was fun! I hope all is well for you on the east coast! Things are swell here on the west coast!
