Song for the Season: The Weepies, “All That I Want”

A couple of years ago I made an alternative Christmas mix. It’s not all Christmas music, but it’s all music that feels like the season to me. So I’m posting some of these songs this advent season. And yes, this song was used in a JC Penney commercial, but I like it anyway. There’s something about the evocation of harbors, snow, wind, and coming home that makes the song work.

    • It’s an odd mix that includes old school Bing Crosby, instrumental stuff from the Royal Tennenbaums, and Patti Griffith’s “Rowing Song” because I first heard it at Christmas driving on a snowy day in Dallas past a small park with swans crossing the street.
