Audio fruitcake: "Mary's Little Boy Child" by Harry Connick, Jr.
One of my favorite Christmas carols is a relatively recent discovery of mine: "Mary's Little Boy Child". Sure, Harry Belafonte's version is the original and may be considered the definitive one, but I prefer Harry Connick, Jr.'s take on the song. His piano and the horns give it a great New Orleans jazz sound. You can find it on his excellent 2003 album Harry for the Holidays.
Fun fact: this album was the soundtrack to the longest paper I ever wrote in my schooling career, an argument against smoking bans for my libertarianism seminar in law school.
