Obviously NSFW in any fashion:
If you like Devo, Mark Mothersbaugh did an album called Joyeux Mutato.
Also not Christmas technically, but it’s a good time of year to make a playlist of all your favorite music from video game ice worlds.
Oh yeah. I would be remiss not to toss in a KPop Xmas song. Most of them are sappy ballad types that I’m not into, but at least Crayon Pop provided this masterpiece.
I just decided I’m gonna bump Brenda Lee and John Lennon down to make room for Stevie in the 4 slot.
The order of my top 5 changes from year to year but this is a solid lineup as is.
That Little Drummer Boy Version is all that is good.
My girlfriend is a classical singer, and often performs as a soloists for choir concerts. Christmas can be a busy time. Here is my favourite piece of hers:
To me, this is the REAL “All I Want for Christmas is You” because I freaking hate that Mariah Carey song.
Guys I found the best sad Christmas song
I could listen to this on repeat for hours, and I don’t even celebrate Christmas. This song gives me chills every time I listen to it:
For when it’s Christmas but you’re still feeling Halloween
Much of this is reposted from the prior forum.
Tori Amos’s Midwinter Graces album is magical. It has original pieces and traditional pieces. Here are few selections.
Barenaked Ladies’ Barenaked for the Holidays album is fun.
Carole King’s A Holiday Carole album is a gem.
A Sesame Street Christmas (a favorite of mine since childhood and it still holds up)
Single songs I enjoy:
The most badass Christmas choral piece I have ever had the pleasure of singing:
The lyrics are so friggin’ great.
This little Babe so few days old
Is come to rifle Satan’s fold;
All hell doth at His presence quake,
Though He Himself for cold doth shake;
For in this weak unarmed wise
The gates of hell He will surprise.
With tears He fights and wins the field,
His tiny breast stands for a shield;
His battering shot are babish cries,
His arrows looks of weeping eyes,
His martial ensigns cold and need,
And feeble flesh His warrior’s steed.
His camp is builded in a stall,
His bulwark but a broken wall,
The crib His trench, haystalks His stakes,
Of shepherds He His army makes;
And thus, as sure His foe to wound,
The angels’ trumps the charge now sound.
My soul with Christ join thou in fight;
Stick to His tents, the place of might.
Within His crib is surest ward;
This little Babe will be thy Guard.
If thou wilt foil thy foes with joy,
Then flit not from this heav’nly Boy!
How did I forget about a Muppet Christmas Carol?
Incorrect, it doesn’t have a perfectly functional gravy recipe in it.
Gravy recipes aren’t sad; they’re the opposite.
So Lizzie is indeed correct. There’s no gravy, so people aren’t happy.
Making a slight revision on my top 5, removing the waitresses with this one instead (forgot about it at the time).
