Here's another Christmas song close to my heart by Harvey Danger. HD put out one pretty great album, one pretty good album, a good EP and a classic record that nobody heard. Do yourself (or me) a holiday favor and listen to 2000's King James Version; it's awesome. Here is a laughably literal video for "Sometimes You Have to Work on Christmas (Sometimes)". Dig that late-'90s service industry angst. "Strangers and spare-changers stand in line like poor relations at some kind of sad reunion / and I'm selling the tickets. / They come in out of the weather / for Christmas alone together."
