The hot tub machine
On Thursday night I finally went to see “Crazy Heart” since it was still playing at one of my local theaters. While it’s not always the happiest film, it is grounded and real, like you’re actually following the life of a country musician addicted to the rock star lifestyle, despite being past his prime.

For the 2005 Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas album, 'Dig That Crazy Christmas' (click for review), Brian Setzer penned two brand new holiday tunes: "Santa Drives a Hot Rod." and "Hey Santa!," a blazing rockabilly-swing gem that should stand as a hepcat's Christmas anthem.

Setzer is the king of all things retro, so it should come as no surprise that "Hey Santa!" comes off like an instant standard.

Setzer has became a Christmas icon by playing the classics next to his amazing originals. BSO's version ...
