My vote is that anything rocking by TSO is a full upper-body workout. My wish is to play in TSO one day as a keyboardist so I can just be a badass musician rocking out to "Christmas Eve / Sarajevo 12/24."

Confession: My arms, back and neck were sore. I still rocked out on the air guitar for most of the CD. I am now even sorer...

Oh well!

Hugs to TSO fans, 'specially "Christmas Eve / Sarajevo 12/24".

I'm with all the "No Christmas Music In November" people, except I'm a little more lax -- No Christmas Music Before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving gets less and less love every year, and it's because of Christmas music and Christmas shopping happening earlier and earlier. I mean seriously, I heard Christmas music prior to Halloween this year, for Christ's sake (or actually probably not).

My two favorite Christmas pieces would have to be Carol of the Bells (ANY rendition) and O Holy Night (preferably piano + female soprano, in French; possibly with mid-high strings).

RE: Radio stations playing Christmas music early...

At least two radio stations have begun doing just that. One, as far as I know, began whipping out the Christmas classics last week. Another one beat them by about a month. Yes, a whole fucking month.

I think the worst example of this would have to be back in 2001. About a week or two after 9/11, one of the stations began playin Christmas music. It's not even fall yet, and you're already playing Christmas music? WTF? Their excuse? "We want to put everyone in a good mood after these hard times." I repeat: WTF. If you want to put people in a good mood after an event like that, play some patriotic music, music that celebrates this country. While trying to sort things out the last thing we need to hear is "Do They Know It's Christmas" by Live Aid.

Huh. I didn't know that was Eartha Kitt. She's still got it too, damn. Eighty years old.

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear is another good traditional carol that you don't hear enough these days. I'm having trouble even finding a good version of it, maybe it's just a song that sounds better in person.

Lawl... Obviously in countries other than the US that doesn't apply; I just can't stand the fact that commercialism causes an entire US Federal holiday to be completely overlooked.

Josh Groban's album 'Noel' has that on it-- I like it, Groban's voice is just very appealing and calming.

I'd have to say my favorite Christmas song is 'Angels We Have Heard On High', followed by 'What Child Is This?'.

Speaking of "What Child Is This?" I have an amazing arrangement of that song set in the style of the first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. It's so pretty!

I like various mixes of "Angels we have heard on high", "Drummer Boy" and "God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen".

That's it. They're the only songs I found capture the true meaning and origin of christmas. I love these songs and even as an atheist, I'd sing them.

I do love "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", especially when done by an all-male choir. It's wonderful ^^

I have a question: Has anyone heard the very... umm... reggae(??) version of "Mary's Boy Child"? It's very upbeat, sung by a woman...? It's awesome, I love it to death, but I don't know who sings it.

Edit: Nevermind, found it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-9lBlQmimI

Whatddya know, first youtube result, lol. I know I run a risk posting this so shortly after the rickroll comic, but I hope someone will realize that I mean no disrespect to Christmas music. It really is what i say ^_^

Am I the only one here who doesn't like christmas and everything associated with it?
The Pogues' christmas song, ok. I can stand that. But all the rest of christmas music? Nope, thank you. It's repetitive and so... happy. I don't like happy music. It makes me feel depressed and frustrated.

Short off topic rant about christmas in general:
Spoiler:
And I want to run when on Dec 23. a stuffed train is full of friendly, smiling people, while the rest of the year it'd be full of grumpy, nasty assholes. That's so... false, pseudo, dishonest.
And social pressure forces families together, causing suicide rates to go up like crazy, while other people kill themselfs out of loneliness.
Honestly, if I could, I'd take christmas off the calendar. Would make the world more real and with less suicide.

I'm going to agree 100% I've suffered some pretty horrendous Christmases and would be more than happy to fast forward past that entire week of festivities to January 2nd.

I accidentally listened to 'Last Christmas' by Wham. This song is... dark magic. I sang along and only realized what I was doing after it was over O.o I mean, I know so many people who say they're fed up with this song, too, yet it keeps putting it's evil spell on them over and over again.
Anyone ever listened to it backwards? :D

:/ I'd suggest lots of loud music, sweets, and someone who volunteers to be your emotional trash can. At least that's what helps me :)

kcr wrote:What's wrong with people being a little nicer or acting a little happier?
What bothers me is that most people put it on and off, depending on what the calendar says and what society expects.
So, either they actually are nice and stuff, but only show it on special occasions, or christmas spirit is just a charade. Perhaps it's a mix of both. Anyways it doesn't seem... real.

Christmas music makes me enraged. I don't feel "Christmas spirit" when I hear this shit starting, I feel like I'm being herded into buying as much shit as I can afford. And the thing that pisses me off the most is that it works. I hear fucking "Jingle Bell Rock" in the stores, and my brain immediately jumps to who I need to buy presents for and what I'm going to get them. I love my friends, and I want to get them nice things and let them know I care, but I hate feeling manipulated.

Yeah, I hate Christmas music too because there's only a few songs and they just play different versions of them endlessly. It's just annoying. And the bland rampant consumerism aspect of it just makes it worse. I feel genuine empathy for everyone who has to listen to that stuff for 8 hours a day because they're stuck in retail or something. The regular radio is bad enough, but when they make it songs that I've already heard one million times...

1337geek, I would just like to let you know that I would never ever like anything by Clay Aiken, even a little bit (unless he completely changed his style, which is unlikely), so your tricks won't work on me! But I do find it funny that it does work on people.

I searched youtube for this guy, and I regret it. His music is sooo mainstream, and he obviously likes himself very much.

I'm living in Germany, a place sheltered from shows like American Idol (but not from the German version of this abomination). Plus I refuse to watch TV or listen to the radio - a decision that was affirmed numerous times up until now (I'm 'internet only' since 2004).

I'm living in Germany, a place sheltered from shows like American Idol (but not from the German version of this abomination). Plus I refuse to watch TV or listen to the radio - a decision that was affirmed numerous times up until now (I'm 'internet only' since 2004).

Ah, it would be much easier to avoid it in Germany.

I don't listen to the radio either if I can help it (except for the classical station), but I do watch a little TV. Only because I do like some things that are on (like House), and I'm too lazy/honest to pirate it (and too cheap to buy the DVD set).

I miss my high school last-day-before-break celebration assembly now, since we did a lot of awesome classics together.

Christmastime is a great excuse for me to start humming the Adeste Fideles descant at random moments though. That and O Holy Night...

Turn off the TV and you too can be ignorant of pop culture. Plus you'll find yourself with lots of time to read those books you've been meaning to get around to.
Some of us exist to find out what can and can't be done.

Others exist to hold the beer.

I do, but it's omnipresent.

Now if I could turn off the internet too...

I find it much easier to control what I get off the net, than what I get off TV. If I don't surf certain sites, I don't get in touch with what I don't like, or I can at least decide how in-depth I explore a topic. On TV there are trailers, commercials, and zapping will give you a sip of tons of shit.


I just realized that the shop where I get all my groceries, doesn't have music playing anymore. So either their radio is broken, or they decided that it's more fun to shop in silence. I expect it to be the former, yet I hope for the latter.
