Loeksband can’t help “Singing by the Christmas Tree.” He names as many of the carols as he can fit in to his bluegrass pop. But, it worry about his back up bears. They don’t look so good.
Allie Jo Thomas got some sharp country charm in her kid songs. “Gonna Run Around the Christmas Tree” may have one YeeHaw! too many, but it’s quite the celebratory way to wear out the little rascals so they’ll sleep.
Watch Out for Rockets took on the trend of the “Upside Down Christmas Tree” to celebrate just how shiny fun the state of mind is no matter how you tilt it. Just when you thought you had that tree just right… Garage lite if you please.
Let’s shovel the ‘Frosty’ parodies off the lot right away. Most of those are drug-related and i’ve done what i can to eliminate all coke=snow songs from the last couple months. Most of the others are amateurish at best. Here are some i can stand.
BLUE ALERT Afroman has studied the naughty “Frosty” and discerned it’s sexual habits. Learn, if you dare.
Back to BLUE ALERTs Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown goes low class UK with obscene carol parodies, staring with “Frosty.” Crude, rude, and bawdy parts galore. John Valby does more or less then same thing, without as much anatomica.
Matt Rogers’s overused “Frosty the Pervert” rounds out the trifecta of BLUE ALERTs. That’s enough, boys.
Bubba Claus pretends he’s drunk singing “Frosty the Beer Mug.” Apart from a strip poker ref, blue-free tawdriness.
On the other mitten, Dan Collins acquits himself admirably with “Jesus the Savior.” He yells ‘Catch me if you can!’ after tipping moneylenders stands. And what does he sub in for thumpity-thump thump?! Look!
Homer and Jethro have a 1953 novelty bit about “Frosty the De-Frosted Snowman” down on the farm. Okay, don’t believe me! I see your corn and raise you pone.
The best tribute to Frosty doesn’t use the melody at all. Fandango Quartet has mixed results singing the right lyrics to ‘O Holy Night.’ their friends like it…..
Sufjan Stevens updates the rascally rogue with his garage-tastic “Mr. Frosty Man.”
Banging garage metal from Nothing to Envy portrays “Yeltsin the Snowman” as a scary monster. Surprized?
Record label Flying Bomb has been an outlet for punk, garage, experimental music since the ’90s. White Stripes got their toehold to success here. Now let’s dip into their phenomenal Xmas compilation from ’02. Happy Supply’s “Young Snowman Got It Bad, ‘Cause He’s So Round” puts the frozen one back on the street, in a cheerful love song.
Chemicals overlays industrial percussion on top of beat poetry voiced as if by a ten-year-old. See if “Abominable Snowman” doesn’t live up to that!
Islands rocks the garage with progressive experimentation in “Abominable Snowman,” more about their performing endurance than the disparate elements. Their box cashed back to earth from outer space. Dig me?
The 3 Doors Down song was originally released as a demo for local play by 97.9 WCPR-FM in Biloxi, Mississippi… first charted on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart reaching number-one for 9 weeks… then hit the Modern Rock Tracks also staying at number-one for 11 weeks… one of the longest-running songs on the chart… reached number one on the Pop Songs chart for 5 non-consecutive weeks… peaked at number 4 on the Adult Top 40 chart… number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100… the band’s highest-charting single there.
ApologetiX feel with the birth of JC with their “Christmasnite.” Hard rocking gospelity.
