Erik's musical Advent calendar: Lyle Lovett - The Girl With The Holiday Smile

In window number 21 of Erik's musical Advent calendar there's a brand new Christmas blues song by the great Texan singer/songwriter Lyle Lovett. He's just released a digital only Christmas EP with three songs called Songs For The Season, and the stand-out track is the Lovett original "The Girl With The Holiday Smile". The girl in question is a hooker that the narrator meets at a grocery store, telling him she "looks so good beneath a Christmas tree", a typically ironic Lyle Lovett song that in its own weird way is a true delight. A great addition to the Christmas songs we know and love, this is a future classic!
