“Nerdy Christmas Tree” from Losing Lara challenges you to reconsider the tree as a collection delivery system. Rocking folk.
One ‘ornament’ you might not have considered is the Christmas tree train that got laid out on the floor all the way around. Artese N Toad wring their hankies over “Daddy’s Old Train box 2007.” Then Schnitzel honky tonks “Christmas Tree Train” just right.
Throwback Day! As previously hailed, awesome Xmas parody band The ’60s Invasion takes on the Lemon Pipers’ 1967 ‘Green Tambourine’ with their “Green Christmas Tree.” My brand of hilarity with ornaments.
Kenny and Dave as The Carol Kings apply surf music to “Decoratin’ Our Tree.” No wacky wipeout jokes, no crashing wave sounds–just Christmas business. Wild.
The Tavson Brothers take a minute to take it all in–what a country/western responsibility! “Let’s Set Up the Christmas Tree” is a sentimental journey for empty nesters, even with some missteps. Don’t pay these assemblers by the hour.
Dougie Bear folks the zydeco with “My Christmas Tree.” He just wants to put it up for everyone to see.
Let’s not leaf off the religion. We sing about trees because we need to get us closer to God.
Bing Crosby leads the congregation with “O Fir Tree Dark.” It’s a symphonic sermon to put us on the straight and sylvan. Not so much about Christmas, though. Double your Bing, double your troubadoring: “Is Christmas Only a Tree?” searches through the trees for more Xmas meaning. (I’m gonna say Mr. Crosby’s a hater of trees.)
When Jane Irene Farley asks us “Let’s Dance Around the Christmas Tree” she is, in a stentorian (and off key) fashion, instructing us in all the Biblical connections. It’s a spelling lesson full of pop timpani, and whiff of Island sauciness.
Shortly and sweetly Al Jarreau sings a rond “By My Christmas Tree” which puts me a spiritual way, more than reminds me directly about only God can make a tree.
Marvelous Marvah asks for a whole Nativity scene and a “Golden Christmas Tree” to help with this holiest of nights. Parang time!
Rollicking disco electric blues from Inquisitor Betrayer claims that “The Christmas Tree Blues” are about the confusion between the secular spruce and the reason for the ball-hanging.
We don’t put a cradle in the room to celebrate the birth of the Lord, so that tree ought to have super associative properties.
Coyly avoiding the name, Sheree Brown and Ledon Smith sing about LOVE, which is “The Christmas Tree I See.” Motown adds legitimacy.
Barbara Fairchild comes right out and says the “Christmas Tree” is just like Jesus Christ. Her wavering ballad with smudges of country gospel make it so. (Roy Morris narrates some sermon to keep you on track.)
Sounding like a ’70s TV commercial Danadrienne folk lecture us to remember the “Forgotten Christmas Tree.” Remember? Christ?
For puppet show ‘Arnie’s Shack’ the star on the “Christmas Tree” is the star of Bethlehem. Electric pop–for kids!
Michael Warner strums some south of the border pop to also string together ornamentation and that Heaven stuff with “A Star on Top of the Christmas Tree.” This’ll get the kids believing in no time.
In fact the Nativity had “No Christmas Tree” at all, so cut that pagan stuff out–according to this marching country sermon from Mary Lee.
Sherri Gough crosses the line from rejoicing in the birth to putting that “Christmas Tree on a Hill.” It’s a pretty country piece though, so let’s listen. (And those other grisly tree as cross numbers come later on.)
