Not loads more zombie holiday music of any worth. (That i’ve found.)
A brief shout out to Emily Sofia Smith who blogs with goth-heart and seasonally lays down a parody melody of murderous merriment that’s worth a glance. Couple years ago it was for The Walking Dead. Last year it was for Hannibal and Bates Motel. Before all that it was fanning and fawning over Dexter. Cute and charnal. A good talent.
But to put a lid on death, let’s get real low budget. Gamer Meg got her (i’m guessing) high school buddies and made a video! “Let Them Come” is a fine parody of ‘Let It Snow’ and tells a story and–well, it only takes a minute.
While on the subject, I’m reminded of something Sam Kinison once said about Jesus being the only guy to come back from the dead and not want to eat your brains.
The seminal punk zombie/Christmas song comes from MxPx. Their classic “Christmas Night of Zombies” (not the title you’d expect when you hear it, but trademark blah blah blah) paints a picture of the undead end of the world… but it’s Christmas! Green (skin) and Red (blood)!
Slamming guitar and heavenly harmonies from Ebeneezer Pop and the Scrooges gives us retro British Invasion style jingle. It also suffers from pontifically illustrated videography. “Santa Claus was Dead” may haunt you with its musical skill, but i doubt it’ll trouble your immortal soul.
Most dead Santa stuff in musical form is captured gaming. It was probably funny there. Not here. Eight Bay Bus gives us a slightly elevated macabre noel (muddied up with Evil Dave’s animation style video).
This is where the humor becomes a bit more fifteen-year-old. Yeah, it’s that time of the theme.
LA DJs Kevin and Bean don’t exactly turn me on, but they occasionally sniff out a good piece of parody.
Their 1998 compilation Santa’s Swinging’ Sack came out the year Ol’ Blue Eyes passed on. Ergo, ‘Ralph Sinatra’ singing “Christmas When You”re Dead.” Yeah, i laughed. And i’m glad. (No imagery here: that seems about right.)
