Christmas Tunes

Let the yuletide festivities commence!

"The Hallelujah Chorus" - The Roches
This track just goes to show that classical music can be perky.

"Christmas in Heaven" - Monty Python
"Christmas Time in Hell" - South Park
Who could resist this pairing? Not I.

"I've Got Some Presents for Santa" - Sarah Taylor and Bill Mumy
Double entendre, Will Robinson!

"50 Kilowatt Tree" - The Bobs
My favorite moment in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is when Clark's display finally lights up and you see the dial on his electric meter spinning like a propeller.

"Ave Maria" - Cranberries & Luciano Pavarotti
I have this image in my mind of Pavarotti deciding to kick back one night and go to a Cranberries show. He's having a great time, dancing down in the front row, but then suddenly the band starts playing this favorite of his, and, upon hearing how badly the lead singer is butchering it, he leaps up onto the stage, shoves her into the orchestra pit, and picks up the lyric after the bridge, thus saving Christmas...

"White Christmas" - Doug And The Slugs
This one's a bit more uptempo the Bing's version.

"Come On! Let's Boogey to the Elf Dance!" - Sufjan Stevens
Come on, you know you want to...

"Merry Christmas" - The Ramones
Another moderately uptempo song.

"Frosty the Snowman" - Leon Redbone & Dr. John
One has to believe that if you see a snowman in New Orleans, there must have been some magic in that old silk hat. I do love this version.
