MOG’s Funky Fresh Christmas playlist

Funky Fresh Christmas playlist

‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the cloud,
The holiday music was tired, the volume far from loud.
The MOG staff was determined, our noses to laptop screens,
To bring a breath of fresh air to the music we all need.

When out of the speakers there came such a sound!
Something so good, the whole company it did astound!
And what to our wondering ears did there bump?
The funkiest holiday jams that made us all shake our rump.

Yes, we sprang to our feet, our new playlist was so hip –
We could not wait for our listeners to give it a rip,
And with that, please enjoy and let us bid to your ears:
A Funky Fresh Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
