    Some people apparently don't like the holiday season. To them I say:



    Focus: What are some great (preferably unconventional) Christmas songs? And no, iczorro, that one doesn't count.

    For example, Christmas is awkward when you slept with her sister:

    I was just playing this song at my register to see if anyone would notice that it's about shit. It's on repeat and so far not one single shopper has noticed.

    Jonathan Coulton, your music makes all WOW players wet (and is my 6 year old's favorite singer)

    Manheim Steamroller and Trans Siberian Orchestra are the only Christmas music I can listen to without wanting to jab candy canes into the eyes of fat old ladies wearing gawdy sweaters.

    Seriously, there's a radio station around here that plays strictly christmas music starting November 1. I have notebooks full of manifesto drafts and creative plans to blow that fucking place off the planet. In all honesty, there are about 15 christmas songs that have ever been written. I don't care how many different artists put out their rendition of Silent Night, I fucking hate christmas music.

    Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer is an exception.

    Ok, step aside people. Greatest Christmas album of all time coming through.

    If TiB comissioned a Christmas Album, Rudy Casonis "Sno' Balls" would be it. Go here: <a class="postlink" href="http://www.myspace.com/rudycasoni" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.myspace.com/rudycasoni</a> and listen to "Sno' Balls". Meanwhile, go buy the album on amazon.

    It's not uncommon for the more elderly guests at Christmas to not be paying attention to the lyrics. We'll catch them tapping their feet and saying "He sounds like Sinatra!"

    The Trans Siberian Orchestra. Unbelievable. Skip to 3:27 for "Christmas Eve Sarajevo" and you're welcome.

    I secretly love Tchaikovsky. I will never, ever get tired of these:

    Pretty Fav: I have listened to this every day for months and not gotten sick of it.


    Fun fav: I love how the music trickles in as little snow flurries and builds to a snow storm at the end.

    How could you not like a Gun for christmas?




    The vandals should be standard issue with any christmas merry-making.

    Best redneck Christmas song that doesn't involve your grandma getting run over.

    Bing Motherfucking Crosby. He can whistle, too.



    Christmas in Hollis!



    My other two favorite songs are actually pretty religious, even though I am as non-religious as it gets:

    Sting:



    Amy Grant. This song is just really pretty:
