Well, I think that if you're going to listen to music that hasn't been fashionable for ages, don't do it in a halfassed way:




PS: Listening to the Pet Shop Boys makes you gay, even if you weren't before. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

But that's not exactly what we're talking about here, is it.  Anyone who's embarrassed about liking the Hot Five/Seven should seek psychiatric help, pronto.

When I'm in charge, anyone who doesn't have this is going to be denied tenure.

Since it's almost that time of year, I reckon we should all talk about our favourite Christmas songs (oh yes FtK, I may be an atheist librul, but I can't help liking this time of year. Fortunately, the holiday has been taken over, like most holidays, by crass commercialism, and while I'm anti-capitalist as well, I can't suppress all my greed).

My two favourite Christmas classics are: Jona Lewie. Stop the Cavalry (not exactly an X-mas song, but it's pretty much one now)

Fairytale of New York, The Pouges ft. Kirsty MacColl.

My absolute favorite Christmas music is The Phil Spector Christmas Album, but it just isn't Christmas until I've heard Bing Crosby sing Mele Kalikimaka.

Here's some other favorites:

The Kinks - Father Christmas

Run DMC - Christmas in Hollis

Chuck Berry - Run Rudolph Run

Ramones - Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight)

Monty Python - Christmas in Heaven

Slade - Merry Christmas Everybody

Even kiddie diddlers can make a good Christmas song - Another Rock & Roll Christmas

And of course, no Christmas is complete without this timeless Holiday classic from Fear

Edited to add: I heart Kirsty MacColl - her version of Days is wonderful.

The best Christmas song evah is I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas!!!1!!!111!!



On Christmas Day, though, we generally play Johnny Mathis and Bing Crosby.  And starting last year, Chris Isaak.

Oh boy, I think an argument might be a' brewin'. What, exactly is wrong with Oasis?

Come on, spill the beans.

ooopps ???  .... okay fair question....
for me it's not one single thing. It's

1) They can't sing.
2) Their lyrics are truly awful.
3) It's all too samey.
4) Their sound isn't particularly original.

No one or two of these attributes is necessarily  bad, - I like
1) Morrissey
2) Pop Will Eat Itself
3) Cocteau Twins
4) Loop
- but Oasis fall at all four hurdles?

Still do bear in mind I'm just an ex-shoegazing goth!  ;)
     
Quote

Oh, and my guilty pleasures? I have a few, actually. Depending upon who I talk to:

Elton John
Pet Shop Boys (no, I'm not gay either)
Lionel Ritchie/The Commodores
Jan Hammer
(apparently now) Oasis.

Someone was bound to point out that Oasis are piss poor sooner or later. Just truly sorry it had to be me.   :p

Pet Shop Boys are an interesting case. I never liked them till they covered "You were always on my mind", a song that I also dislike intensely. For some reason the track just clicked and my attitude softened. Strange.

Edited to add - (cos it's teh nu sex)
As others feel the necessity to out that there straight - I'll just say I'm not gay either, but according to my ex I make a good proxy lesbian. What a sweety!

Whats one of them then?

As for Oasis, they were derivative yes, but were part of whatever you call thatpop movement in the 90's when I was at uni and not listening to it except when my flatmates played it loud.  I have heard people say that Blur etc were doing far more interesting unusual things, and I suppose that is correct, yet at the same time good music isn't all about doing new stuff.  So my general poinion is Oasis were ok for a couple of albums, but were never great, i.e. groundbreaking and important.

I reccomend "Within temptation" if you like kind og gothic rock stuff that sounds good.

Lol!

Can I just say in my defense that I was, even at that tender age, far to cynical to behave like that!
I was, as I recall, a gippy (gothic hippy)
So you start here then move to here, give yourself a slap and move on to this.

Good god I've never seen the video to that Chapterhouse track. Aren't they such sweet boys. You just want to take them home and eat them all up...  :D

A gippy? Now how the f*** do black, skulls, 18th century style clothing (for the girls at least) combine with happiness, bright green, yellow, blue etc etc and flowers correspond to each other??
Besides, that Southpark kid isn't a goth, he's an emo.
Anyway, I "spin" so much different stuff it's almost schizofrenic. I like this, I'm the only one I know in real life who actually listens this and this wich is pretty normal for my age but this ain't and also this ain't considerd normal for my age too.
And well, that's only a start ;)
In total it would be, well the main genres: taiko, hardstyle, classical, trance/dance, jazz, metal and hardrock, disco (yea that 70's stuff) and much much more.
Now don't tell me this ain't original for 17 year old! Only possible because of the internetzzz ofcourse, huzzah for Limewire.

We put up the tree this evening, while listening to Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire, by Bob Rivers.

Good stuff.

I'm rather partial to Who Put the Stump?, a parody of Barry Mann's 1961 Who put the Bomp?

 
Quote (The Angel atop the Tree @ Christmas Day, 2000)
I'd like to find the guy
Who done me wrong
And stuck my butt up
On this Christmas tree.

Who put the stump
In my rump-ba-bump-ba-bump?
Who took and jammed it
In my ram-a-lam-a-ding dong?
Who stood the wood
Where I poop-she-poop-she-poop?
Who put the stick
Up my hipty-dipty-dip?

Who was that man?
He shoved it up my can
And left me stranded on this Christmas tree. (Yeah ...)

When this angel heard
Chop-ba-ba-bop, di-chop-ba-ba-bop,
A dreadful fear went right into my heart.
Those pine tree needles sting me,
Ram-a-jam-a-ram-a-jammin' near my ding dong.
You'll never know how much that smarts. (Hooah ...)

So who put the stump
In my rump-ba-bump-ba-bump?
Who took and jammed it
In my ram-a-lam-a-ding dong?
Who stood the wood
Where I poop-she-poop-she-poop?
Who put the stick
Up my hipty-dipty-dip?

Who took that bush
And crammed it in my tush?
He made this angel beg for mercy, please. (Yow ...)

Each night when I'm alone,
Scratchity scratchity scratchity scratchity
Scratchity scratchity shoop ...
It sets my tiny bottom all aglow.
And every time I wiggle,
Slipty-din-de-din, slipty-din-de-din,
A little further in it goes. (Ohhh/Yeah ...)

(Rump-ba-bump-ba-bump
Ram-a-lam-a ding dong
Slipty-din-de-din
Poopity poopity shoop ...)

Do we have any ATBC folks out there that live in Vancouver?

I am sitting here drinking beer and listening to Americana / alt-country music on Boot Liquor on SomaFM Internet radio and pondering the fact that Vancouver seems to have a pretty good music scene.  When I normally think of alt-country, I think of Texas and artists like Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt, and Robert Earl Keen.  But, I am finding myself coming across alot of good music coming out of Vancouver.  The Vancouver artists on my radar screen right now are Neko Case, The Be Good Tanyas, and El Dorado.

Any other good alt-country groups out there in BC?

Best xmas movie evah: 'Bad Santa':



 
Quote
Willie: [the kid on his lap stares blankly at him] Well, what do you want? Great. Another fucking Mongoloid. Marcus, get this kid off me before he pisses on me, all right? What the fuck are you doing, Don't fuck with my beard.
Kid: Its not real.
Willie: No shit.
Willie: Ya see, it was real, but then Santa got sick and all the hair fell out, so I have to wear this fucking thing.
Kid: How did you get sick?
Willie: I loved a woman who wasn't clean.
Kid: Mrs. Santa?
Kid: No, it was her sister.

I can't stop listening to Bjork's Earth Intruders. There's something transcendental about this song. It's Great with a capital G. I don't know why. But I'm in the presence of something beyond my understanding.

Quote (Dan Fogelberg @ The Innocent Age, 1981)
The leader of the band is tired
And his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through
My instrument
And his song is in my soul --
My life has been a poor attempt
To imitate the man
Im just a living legacy
To the leader of the band
I am the living legacy
To the leader of the band.


Sadly, the Dan Folgelberg's instrument is now forever silent.

Quote
NEW YORK (AP) -- Dan Fogelberg, the singer and songwriter whose hits "Leader of the Band" and "Same Old Lang Syne" helped define the soft-rock era, died Sunday at his home in Maine after battling prostate cancer. He was 56.

His death was announced Sunday on the singer's Web site.

"Dan left us this morning at 6 a.m. He fought a brave battle with cancer and died peacefully at home in Maine with his wife, Jean, at his side," it read. "His strength, dignity and grace in the face of the daunting challenges of this disease were an inspiration to all who knew him."

Fogelberg discovered he had advanced prostate cancer in 2004. In a statement then, he thanked fans for their support: "It is truly overwhelming and humbling to realize how many lives my music has touched so deeply all these years. ... I thank you from the very depths of my heart."

Fogelberg's music was powerful in its simplicity. He didn't rely on the volume of his voice to convey his emotions; instead, they came through in the soft, tender delivery and his poignant lyrics. Songs like "Same Old Lang Syne" -- in which a man reminisces after meeting an old girlfriend by chance during the holidays -- became classics not only because of his performance, but also for the engaging storyline.

I can't explain it. I feel like a guy who's always liked figurative painting, like Rembrandt, Michaelangelo, etc, who's confronted by Guernica, and feels it's great, but can't explain why. It violates the rules, but there's something fantastic there, and it's troubling.

Since we have had recent posts on favorite Christmas music and alt-country, I thought I'd share this little gem that I had forgotten about.

Merry Christmas From the Family by Robert Earl Keen.

Well here's my entry for a Christmas song. Prepare to shed real human tears.  :p

Not having a TV or Radio I hadn't heard "Earth Intruders" so I had a look at the video on YouTube. Pretty cool, but am I the only person to be reminded of this whilst listening to it?

Arden's post on the Young Cosmos thread reminded me of a Christmas song... a lounge version of "What Child is This" sung to the tune of "Sweet Child O' Mine".

Listen to it here.

this loungey version of Sweet Child of Mine is not bad. Have to prefer the Axl Rose version, though, at least, before he ruined his voice.
