Nothing like having writer's block, a cold and a bad case of the blahs on the same day. Which happens to be a Monday, anyhow. Useless and contagious, I am.
Anyhow, as per Lileks
, who asks for your favorite/least favorite Christmas songs, the Worst. Christmas Song. Ever.
Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight
I would rather gag myself with mama's shoes than have to listen to that ever again.
Favorite Christmas song?
There’s no presents, not this christmas
There’s no presents
Tom and jerry, drinking sherry
They don’t give a damn
King Diamond - No Presents For Christmas.
No, not really. But damn close. Maybe Run DMC's Christmas in Hollis.
For classics, nothing beats Holly Jolly Christmas.
You know what this means, don't you? Time for Alternative Christmas Mix, Volume IV. [Here's 3
. I can't find 1.]
I'm once again looking for alternate versions of Christmas classics, metal/punk bands doing holiday music, as well as offbeat, or just deranged, seasonal songs. Repeats from the pasts lists are fine, as I didn't include them all when I made my CDs.
As with the last few years, I'll cull the best from the list and make a CD out of it, which I will give away in one of my Christmas contests, and then I'll proceed to procrastinate sending the CD to the winner and he/she will end up getting it some time around Easter, after threats of a lawsuit and/or beating.
Anyhow, let's have your best alternative Christmas songs. Please, no Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer
