Song: "Jingle Bell Rock from Daryl" 
[ listen ]

Time for Christmas music! Here's a bit of holiday cheer (7 inches, to be exact) that I picked up in Arab, Alabama during my road trip through the South earlier this year. Yes, yes, I know you're "supposed" to say Hall & Oates, but I don't think it's fair that John Oates has always has to play second fiddle to Daryl Hall—and his hair. I mean what about the moustache! Honestly, if I had to pick just one member of Oates & Hall to spend the rest of eternity with on a deserted island, it would be John Oates for sure. It's an added bonus to discover that the very vinyl this promotional recording was pressed onto is the color of fake Christmas holly! It was also reportedly available in the color of berries.
