    Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who noticed when they changed the VA for Santa in this to Jim Cummings.

    Sounds like Barney changed slightly too.

    I think my favorite Christmas song is The 12 Days of Christmas just because there are so many fun variations.

    HOWEVER

    I get irrationally upset when a song uses the traditional days but fucks up the order. There are just a few versions out there I've heard that mix up 9-12 and it irks me.

    The correct order is:
    12 drummers drumming
    11 pipers piping
    10 lords a-leaping
    9 ladies dancing
    8 maids a-milking
    7 swans a-swimming
    6 geese a-laying
    5 gooooooldddd riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiings
    4 calling birds
    3 french hens
    2 turtle doves
    and a partridge in a pear tree

    i bounce off of religious christmas music pretty hard

    some of it is very pretty, but by and large, i can't think of a religious christmas song that sticks with me half as much as I Wish It Was Christmas Today or Darlene Love's cover of Marshmallow World

    but that's largely because i've never been a religious person, but i have been a person who gets sad during the winter

    so songs about being super happy and cheerful and being kind to people speak to me on a personal level much more than any religious story does

    As a recovered Catholic, I also feel odd about the religious songs. I mean, I don't mind them playing, since religious aspects definitely are part of the history of the holiday. Trying to remove them completely would be historically dishonest. But I would feel weird singing along with "oh come let us adore him, Christ the lord," so I don't.

    @The Geek @The Hanged Man I believe a duel is appropriate in these circumstances. Or perhaps a cracking of the knuckles.

    i can't decide whether this cover of wonderful christmastime is better than the original by virtue of simply being less aurally corrosive,
    or worse because in what world would someone think covering 'wonderful christmastime' would be an okay and acceptable thing to do

    The easy listening radio station has turned into the Christmas music station. I'm a bit sad, as it was the third best music station near my work. And now when the other two have commercials, I don't have this one to turn to.

    If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

    Christmas music is good and fine but why is Last Christmas so popular? It's bad.

    Last Christmas I confessed my love to you and you dumped me but THIS YEAR I'm going to confess my love to an actually good person, fuck you.

    Christmas is always a family get-together for me so there's a bit of an incest vibe to it as well.

    That song always made me especially grumpy, because Christmas doesn't seem to have anything to do with the actual subject. It's just a pretty ordinary pop song on its own merits, kind of dull, not doing anything exciting with lyrics or music... but they knew that by mentioning Christmas they could guarantee it two months of play a year. And then people keep covering it, so that there are always multiple versions in Holiday Music Hell radio rotation.

    The words were by an English guy
    The music, Scandinavian
    Wenceslas was five-foot-six
    He kept his face unshaven
    Though just a duke throughout his life
    He always ruled so justly
    His kingly title was conferred
    Upon him posthumously

    Christmas Music, like anything, has it's great and crappy. On the whole, it's not too bad. Especially because I feel like most of it at least tries to foster the spirit of the season, which is to not be dicks to each other so we can survive the winter and maybe figure out how do that the rest of year too.

    Also, no one's posted the 2nd best Muppet Christmas Carol song yet

    I never worked in retail before, but this is my first christmas in the store and I played christmas occasionally, and then I was exasperated with it and stopped.
    Then people would ask why I didn't have christmas music on, so I put it back to christmas stations.
    Christmas music is not good.
