as requested, here is the track listing for my xmas cd from last year. i should mention that i do have a couple of rules when i make my tape/cd.
1. a song can only be represented once on the tape/cd. (ie.. only one version of "jingle bells' per year)
2. only one appearance per artist is usually allowed. short spoken messages are not included so the artist can also have a song on as well as a message.
3. once a track has made an appearance, it gets retired and doesn't appear again.
since last year was the first year for the cd, all songs were ruled eligible.
each year tape/cd has a different good/bad name.
