    I'm... not going to sign up this year. Playing LDB Roulette is just one more thing I need to worry about pay attention to and remember, and I'm not sure what that does to my mental health.

    If I notice it playing while shopping around, I'll post about it, but I won't be looking out for it every time I go out. Sorry.

    Sign me up.

    My new boss isn't shy about how much he loves xmas and xmas music (I caught him whistling Jingle Bells on the way back from lunch back in July), but he's mostly WFH and doesn't sit near me when he's in office, so I feel like I stand a decent chance

    I cannot wait for the theme to be revealed. Final Fantasy was a high mark but Resident Evil was great too

    I'm in. Let's see if my habit of cooking recipes that require me to search multiple stores for ingredients will be my downfall once again.

    it's like that
    Peace on earth, can it be
    Years from now, perhaps we'll see
    See the day of glory
    See the day, when men of good will
    Live in peace, live in peace again

    holy shit

    so the episode of Between Two Ferns with Tobey Maguire and Sam Jackson randomly popped in my youtube feed, I'm kinda half listening and it gets to the end and he says "here to sing Little Drummer Boy is Arcade Fire" and I look over and the name of the song is on the screen and I'm just staring at it as one of them starts to play percussion on the tambourine and I must have been half a millisecond from the opening bars before I realized what was about to happen and hit pause

    goddamn, that petard self-hoisting was dangerously close

    I survived last year and it was pretty boring.

    I go out more now, though, looking forward to my inevitable demise.

    I've never even opened one of these threads before. Why is it this song specifically instead of any other Christmas song?

    I'm in. Christmas music hasn't started here, so I should be safe for a couple of weeks. I do have two work Christmas parties to look forward to, though.

    Because it’s common enough that it’s hard to avoid but nearly as common as a lot of other Christmas music. Trying to make it through the holiday without hearing All I Want for Christmas Is You is damn near impossible

    Fair enough.

    Pondering this made me wonder how many of the big UK Christmas songs are known in other places.

    Do people in other countries know Slade?

    https://youtu.be/BpfHSqLXePI

    Or Wizzard?

    https://youtu.be/IJPc7esgvsA

    These are the 2 big ones I always think of apart from Mariah Carey

    I think the UK has the best selection of Christmas music that is just ignored by the rest of the world. Can you go a Christmas without hearing Mel & Kim's Rocking around the Christmas Tree blaring out from a Tesco speaker? Walk past a WH Smith and not hear the dulcet tones of Mistletoe and Wine? Get the guitar riff from In Dulce Jubilo stuck in your head for weeks?

    We spent Christmas in America at my Uncle's one year and everything was just Big Band and jazzy covers of hymns and there wasn't anything that was a certified banger like Slade / Wizzard / etc.

    I just hate all the common Christmas music because I hear them all every year, always the same ones, dozens of times over individually, and they never change. There's no new stimulus to be gained from them.

    It wouldn't be so bad if there was fresh blood injected into the scene like I see on YouTube. Or at least some more oddball picks on the radio like I Am Santa Claus in the tune of I Am Iron Man, but nope always the same set of songs the same as yesteryear dating back to the dinosaurs.

    So this little game is just an attempt to get some form of stimulus from media that's long lost it for me.

    I hear Slade and my first thought is immediately the Teen Titans villain. The animated version of course.

    I again volunteer as judge for people who are unsure if something counts as the song or not. I will listen to it and render a verdict if that is cool with Raijin
