It’s that special time of year once again
Posted December 17, 2016on:
Good Saturday and Weekend!
Yes, if you haven’t already been bombarded at the malls, grocery stores, your mail, emails and all the rest, we’re into the “special season” of the year. Oh what fun…
I was originally going to do a Christmas/holiday movie post but I didn’t have enough phenergan on hand to counteract the nausea that would induce. So instead I’ve opted for “Christmassy” songs. I feel that will be holiday themed enough for us.
Perhaps I’m being overly pessimistic but with the advent (ha!) of a tRump Presidency and his four horsemen who will be
leading the apocalypse, uh running the country, I see at least four years of lumps of coal for us not in the one percent or not being Putin. So without further adieu here we go!
(1) A Christmas Festival ~ Leroy Anderson ~ Boston Pops Orchestra: A staple of high school and middle school bands across America (Why listen to one Christmas classic when you could listen to a brass-blasting medley of nine?)
(2)‘Cold White Christmas’ ~ Casiotone For The Painfully Alone
Background info: The subject of this ballad is a young graduate who decides to go and make it on her own, only to find herself in a dead-end job and a mouldy flat. But with too much pride to face her family, she ends up spending Christmas alone, counting bed bugs.
(3) Dear Santa (Bring me a man this Christmas) ~ The Weather Girls
(4) Santa Claus ~ The Sonics
(5) Merry Christmas (I don’t want to fight tonight) ~ The Ramones
(6) Run Rudolph Run ~ Chuck Berry
So okay, those are my choices/selections for this weekend before the holiday. Please share yours in the comments below.
