My favorite Christmas song - Bowie and Bing Crosby's version of Little Drummer Boy

It's just temporary! I have this seasonal job and ever hour on the hour the clock on the wall plays a christmas jingle! Drives me crazy!!! I was so hoping that thing would of died before we started this season. No such luck. I just downloaded Band-aid's Do They Know It's Christmas Time. I love that song!

Yes, I also own "Christmas" by Low. I can't wait to listen to it!

My favorite Christmas album is The Three Tenors Christmas. Incomparable singing and beautiful, classic songs. I also like John Denver and the Muppets' Christmas album. Reminds me of being a kid.

There is one other Christmas album I want; it's by a soprano singer named Jamie something from Georgia. I saw her special on PBS last year and it was beautiful.

What the hey is slowcore?

From www.allmusic.com :

Slowcore is indeed famed for the snail's pace of the skeletal music — melodies linger forever and rhythms lurch forward, all shrouded in thick, dank atmospherics. While closely intertwined with sadcore, which favors a similar sound, slowcore's concerns are far more musical than lyrical — in fact, many slowcore bands are instrumental outfits, while those with vocalists typically employ much more opaque lyrics than their soul-baring sadcore counterparts.

Low's version of 'Little Drummer Boy' is so great I listen to it even when it's June.

Oh yeah, by the way. "Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues is the best (and most honest) Christmas song ever. Everyone who has not heard this, go purchase or download now. I'll wait here. IWasBored can back me up on this one. Go on.
