Boxer just barely missed the top 100. That's a shame. Another 30 points would've done it.

Well, as a Christmas-themed album, it might have just not been on people's radar. I don't keep my Christmas CDs with my collection - I have them in storage with all my Christmas junk and bring them out around this time of year.

I didn't even think of it until the list was almost done.

And I don't really like jazz - so that's how much I like the album!

And while I didn't have Everything Is Wrong on my list either, I would agree with you that it's better.
It was more in the level of "mild lol" as opposed to the Travis or Joanna Newsom-level "massive lol."

The Scumbo/impy indietastic combo lists would be great to see.

Oh, totally. He was just too damned serious and pretentious for his own good. After Throwing Copper, I liked Lakini's Juice, Turn My Head and Overcome. That's about it.

How much did Boxer miss by? I kinda was pissed off after I sent you my list because I forgot to move Boxer up by the Okkervil, where it's at was where I set it for a moment and then I didn't realize it was there til after I sent it to you, but I didn't think it would make a difference

ETA: nope, wouldn't have made a difference

I had 31 from my list make it.

Which means that it wasn't very original.

I was surprised to see Joanna Newsom pop up as often as she did.

I checked out Ys after hearing all the raves about it ........ let's just say I missed that boat.

"Christmastime Is Here" and "Linus and Lucy" are two of the best songs ever. Fucking love Charlie Brown.

I have a question about this. I was told in high school that this music was NOT written for A Charlie Brown Christmas. Is that true?

It's really one of those perfect little albums, isn't it?

Renaissance-era songstresses aren't really my thing. Sting may love it, but I am not Sting... not even an Andy Summer.

I know the "Linus and Lucy" music was used elsewhere with other Charlie Brown stuff, and that Vince Guaraldi did in fact do non-Peanuts music, but I don't know if there's more to it than that.

It's entirely possible.

See, I do like jazz -- quite a bit, actually -- so it's naturally a favorite. I've actually loved Vince Guaraldi's music since I was a little kid, even before I knew who he was or his significance, and there's just something about that record...it's melancholy and beautiful, something you can play any time of the year. Hell, remove the titles and it's difficult to tell what exactly its purpose is. It just sounds like a damn fine jazzy piano record to me.

It's to show how morbidly depressing Charlie Brown's life truly is... and be kick-ass.
