Oh well. I like it. I thought the tongue was just your way to signal that you were being contrary to piss me off.

More Christmas songs that don't suck:
  • Chris Cornell's version of "Ave Maria" (with Eleven)
  • Chuck Berry's "Run, Run, Rudolph"
  • The Who's "Christmas" (doesn't really make sense out of context from Tommy, though)
  • Pearl Jam's cover of the Sonics' "Don't Believe In Christmas" (haven't heard the original)
  • I know it was mentioned already, but it's worth repeating: John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)"
  • Paul's "Wonderful Christmastime" isn't horrible either
Then there are songs that aren't specifically about Christmas but carry the mood, like U2's "If God Will Send His Angels."

A few years ago Rosie O'Donnell had a Christmas album out, and she sang with a member of the Rugrats or some other cartoon character like that. It was the most awful song I've ever heard in my life! They played it a couple of times at the Borders where I worked at the time, but even the General Manager decided that it was too horrible to inflict on shoppers and employees!

My favorite Christmas song, besides U2, is "Christmas Wrapping" by the Waitresses.

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.
Hmmm. Thanks. I'd like to have an album of sadcore for Xmas.

Yes, my mom is already playing Christmas music.

Luckily, her CD's are all instrumental, Irish/Scottish based stuff, so it's not too bad. But it's not even Thanksgiving yet!!

I'm like "Mom, why don't we put on this CD?" but that hasnt happened yet. Instead, it's Christmas!

We did listen to "The Nightmare Before Christmas" soundtrack though. It's now considered Christmas music to us, because we have NBC decorations up from Halloween onward...!

What I find odd is that she wants to then end Christmas the day after...
