Merry Christmas (I don't wanna work)



Merry Christmas everyone. While you've been slumbering or opening presents, I'm slaving away at the Stuck in the '80s headquarters building all alone this morning. But I've got a present ready for you anyway.

I'm a big believer in making any holiday your own -- the food (in my case, a knockwurst for breakfast), the festivities (ummm, still working!) and the music (yay!). So put away those Perry Como and Neil Diamond CDs that your parents gave you. It's time for the '80s Nation to reclaim Christmas. Here's a list of must-hear holiday tunes for today. (And to paraphrase the unintentionally crass Bono, "Today, thank God I'm working instead of you.")

By the way, take the time to listen to the entire extended mix of Do They Know It's Christmas Time and you'll hear holiday wishes from all the participants of Band-Aid. It's an amazing time capsule.

Christmas in the 80s
