Here's some background on another set of tracks from my latest holiday mix, Be a Santa, which was created to celebrate the 2021 holiday season.
Everything's Gonna Be Cool This Christmas, Eels (2008)
Remember last year when you were on your ownYou swore the spirit couldn't be foundDecember rolled around and you were counting on itTo roll outWell everything's gonna be cool this ChristmasEverything's gonna be cool this ChristmasEverything's gonna be cool this ChristmasWell everybody's lookin' for you down at the houseThe tree is looking so inspiredThere's a yuletide groove waitin' for you to moveI'll go and throw another log on the fire …
Eels is a Los Angeles-based rock band formed in 1991 by singer/songwriter Mark Oliver Everett, who also goes by the stage name E. Everett's been rather prolific during the past 20 years, both as the leader of Eel and as a solo artist. Summarizing their stuff in any sort of meaningful way would require more experience with their music than I can claim, but I'm hoping you'll like this neat holiday release as much as I do.
