Since my wife is such a "FAN" of Xmas music early in the season (sarcasm) I am going to go home right after work and load a bunch of random Xmas tunes into her Spotify playlist. I think it will be hilarious to see her expression when she is sitting there doing her tumblr stuff and a Xmas song comes on... 8D

When it gets close to Christmas (like Dec. 18 or so) I love Vince Guaraldi, Winton Marsalis's Crescent City Christmas, well-done orchestral Christmas music, and that awesomely hilarious Bob Rivers record.

Everything else can suck it.

Those all Christmas all the time radio stations play the same damn 30-40 songs over and over and over and over. Springsteen - "Santa Claus is coming to town," that Mariah Carey one, that Paul McCartney one, etc ad nauseum. Every freakin station, every store, every mall, every park, everywhere you go plays the same crap over and over and over. I can't stand it.

And I HAAAAAAATE "Carol of the Bells." I hate it straight, I hate it as a spoof, I hate it with vocals, I hate it instrumental (except for Winton Marsalis's version.)

And don't get me started on the spoofs . Bob Rivers' spoofs are clever, witty, and well-performed. Nearly every other spoof is completely insipid. Especially when it's a commercial.

And while I'm ranting about Christmas music, here's the best description I ever heard of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra: "It's what would happen if Spinal Tap made a Christmas record."

Bob Rivers is a family tradition at our house. In fact, I just found a CD at work.

And thanks for reminding me to look into TSO tickets!!

And "I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas" always immediately follows Christmas dinner.

John Valby ("Dr. Dirty") always cheers me up during the holidays.

A local comedian/musician plays a completely irreverent, but hilarious medley where he switches "Jesus Christ" and "Santa Claus" around, giving us "Here comes Jesus Christ, right down Jesus Christ lane," "The little lord Santa lay down his sweet head ... " and "I saw Mommy kissing Jesus Christ," and on and on.
