I didn't get too much music for Christmas this year but I'm not complaining...what I did get is awesome...My favorite by far is Dan Wilson's Free Life and particularly the song "Breathless."
Dan was is the lead singer of the great band Semisonic and since they broke up went into semi-retirement he has been keeping himself busy by writing half of the The Dixie Chicks album of the year and putting our his first solo album. Produced by Rick Rubin, each track is great. I particularly love these lyrics from "Breathless":
"Your voice is echoing again / through catacombs inside my mind/ and I've been dreaming of revenge / to make you love me more than even you can try"
