The power of suggestion? Nah. We're no where near deluded enough to think that we wield that kind of power -- well, not when we're sober anyway. Remember last week when we bemoaned the fact that there hasn't been any new holiday songs of note? Obviously, we spoke a little to soon. This morning, we came across what appears to be an original Christmas tune from the Mansfields -- or in the very least it's a song that we'd not heard before, an acoustic number called "Ghost of Christmas," as well as a bang up cover of "Santa Bring My Baby (Back to Me)." Give a listen after the jump. And if you know of any other local covers or songs penned with the holidays in mind, speak up.
