25 Days of Holiday Music: Day 19

Get your dancin' shoes, or your best western boots, because today's song is a toe-tappin' delight. "Two-Step 'Round The Christmas Tree" is an all-out and raucous country number from Suzy Bogguss. Recorded for her 2001 holiday album, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, but it wasn't released as  a single. Single status was reserved for her version of the title track or, perhaps, "Mr. Santa" (which had originally been released as a non-album single in 1989). While "Mr. Santa" is a cute rewrite of "Mr. Sandman" with a holiday twist, "Two-Step 'Round The Christmas Tree" is about a woman who does not want a "Silent Night," but rather wants to move the tree so she can dance around and celebrate. Sounds about right for the middle of the week before the holidays, eh?
