Hahaha, so if you've ever shopped at an American Eagle Outfitters, you know they have music playing in the background. Well, as someone who worked there for a few months during the Christmas season, you quickly realize it's the same so-many songs over and over (as opposed to a radio station. Which, to be fair, also plays the same so-many songs over and over.) But I digress.
Anyway, during my orientation they switched to the Holiday CD (what a good metaphorical change of gears...) and since then I really wanted to make a list of the songs. That list has found it's way to the internet, and I wanted to repost it here so as to come back to it and refer at some point.
