It’s the holidays, so like it or not, you’re going to be inundated with tons of crappy songs about reindeer and jolly old Saint Nick and how Christmas isn’t really about presents. Some of them might tug at your heart, but more will just annoy the piss out of you. But… it doesn’t all suck, so here’s a quick list to help you get through it all. Happy Festivus!
Les Baxter Orchestra, “Santa Claus’ Party”
Yuletide fun from the king of the tiki bar!
Low, “The Little Drummer Boy”, Christmas
The first indie Christmas album is achingly beautiful.
Yogi Yorgesson, “I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas”
A giggity good time from the ultimate prankster.
Dexter Gordon Quartet “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, God Rest Ye Merry Jazzmen
They just don’t make records like this anymore, man.
Frank Zappa, “Xmas Values”, Civilization Phase III
Pretty much what I envision a Zappa Christmas sounding like.
Smashing Pumpkins, “Christmastime”, Rarities & B-sides
Merry Christmas from the king of melancholy.
Ween, “Silent Night”, Merry Little Christmas
The grandmasters of goof spread holiday cheer!
Tech N9ne, “Red Nose”, Sickology 101
An interesting take on the Rudolph story.
Ernest Tubb and His Texas Troubadours, ”I’m Trimming My Christmas Tree with Tears”, Blue Christmas
Broke-hearted country songs are a tradition ’round these parts.
Blowfly, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, Blowfly Does XXXmas
And perverted Christmas songs are a tradition here too!
Merry mothaphuckin’ Christmas. Stay tuned in next week for some NYE stuff.
