    Default the Christmas music thread

    Shinedown covered John Lennon's "So this is Christmas". I gotta say, I'm not really impressed. In fact, I think it's really pretty aweful. I hate when bands fuck with classics like that... And not liking Shinedown doesn't help matters either....

    Along those lines, what are some of your favorite Christmas songs?

    I really like the classics. Bing Crosby, Vince Geraldi and, of course, Stryper's "Winter Wonderland".

    Haven't heard it, but I wouldn't be surprised if it sucks. IMO, they're pretty lame. If you're looking for a good cover of that tune, check out Melissa Ethteridge's.

    While I'm at it, IMO Bing Crosby and David Bowie's Little Drummer Boy is the weirdest, best Christmas tune ever and Twisted Sister's latest, A Twisted Christmas, rocks!

    oh yeah, I had forgotten about the Etheridge cover. It's a good one.

    In the Wick household, the two mainstay CD's are "Beach Boys Christmas" Elvis "Blue Christmas."

    Santa Claus is comin to town by Springsteen is my alltime favorite version of a Christmas tune. It's one of the few Christmas tunes that doesn't turn my stomach if I hear it prior to Dec 23rd.

    Default Merry Christmas

    I am taking this song to ASCAP on Music Row, hope to have it cut by a signed artist next Christmas.


    MERRY CHRISTMAS

    http://jimcolyer.com/@tracks/128/hifi.mp3

    We got so many presents under the Christmas tree
    Santa Claus has been good to you and me
    As you steal a kiss under the mistletoe
    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you

    We got turkey and dressing smothered in cranberry sauce
    We got honeybaked ham and a bottle of wine of course
    In the candlelight, I propose this toast
    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you

    Snow is falling, friends are calling
    The neighborhood's dressed in white
    Bells are ringing, the choir is singing
    Their version of "Silent Night"

    We won't forget the real meaning of this day
    The day on which our Savior was born
    It's Jesus Christ on my Christmas card
    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you

    solo

    Snow is falling, friends are calling
    The neighborhood's dressed in white
    Bells are ringing, the choir is singing
    Their version of "Silent Night"

    We won't forget the real meaning of this day
    The day on which our Savior was born
    It's Jesus Christ on my Christmas card
    Merry Christmas to you
    Merry Christmas to you

    Default Putting together some Christmas CDs. Need some suggestions for songs to add.

    I few years ago I put together a couple of CDs with some of my favorite Christmas tunes on them. Now this isnt your standard group of Christmas songs though. Below is a sample list of some of the stuff I have on there.

    Blink 182 - I wont Be Home For Christmas
    Cartman - Oh Holy Night
    John Lennon - So This Is Christmas
    Pearl Jam - Let Me Sleep (Its Christmas Time)
    Band Aid - Feed The World
    Red Peters - Holy Sh*t Its Christmas
    The Bosstones - Sure Dont Feel Like Christmas Time
    Tori Amos - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
    Cheech & Chong - Santa And His Old Lady
    No Doubt - Oy To The World
    The Ramones - Merry Christmas (I Dont Want To Fight)
    TVTV - Daddy Drank All Our Christmas Money
    Satan - Christmas Time In Hell
    Everclear - I will Be Hating You For Christmas
    Bob & Doug McKenzie - 12 Days Of Christmas
    and so on............

    As you can see it is all over the place. I wanted to make a up to date Christmas CD and it turned into two CDs. I have alot more songs on it then what I have listed. I thought I would add more to the collection being I have a iPod now.

    So I am asking any of you linkers out there for your input on songs to add and to maybe have fun with the whole thing.

    Probably get some suggestions here

    I like the ones by artists that I like that have a "traditional" feel to them

    John Lennon - "Happy XMas (War Is Over)"
    U2 - "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"
    Eagles - "Please Come Home For Christmas"
    Eurythmics - "Winter Wonderland"
    Extreme - "Christmas Time Again"
    Greg Lake - "I Believe In Father Christmas"
    and many others

    plus you gotta have some from ELVIS' Christmas album.

    I do like Cheech & Chong's "Santa Claus and His Old Lady", Bob & Doug McKenzie's "Twelve Days of Christmas" & Jeff Foxworthy's "Redneck Twelve Days of Christmas"

    Though I also love the Greg Lake song, you can't have a Christmas album without:

    Father Christmas - The Kinks
    Is That You, Santa Claus? - Buster Poindexter

    And what about Adam Sandler's Chanukkah song (has a DLR mention)?

    And naturally, the greatest Christmas tune of all time :

    Porky Pig (originally Simon Squealer)- "Blue Christmas" (2:05)

    You HAVE TO have "The Little Drummer Boy" - Bing Crosby & David Bowie. Unlikely pairing, but a great cover.

    Gary Hoey has done a ton of Christmas tunes if your into guitar instrumentals, among my Favorite of his are:

    You're a mean one Mr. Grinch
    Twelve days of Christmas
    Rockin' around the Christmas tree.

    Merry Fucking Christmas by Denis Leary. The X-Mas song I'll be listening to all X-mas. Might not be the best song if your going to play this with little kids
    A recent study shows 92% of the teenage population likes rap music. If you are part of the 8% who listen to real music, put this as your sig.
