She also suspects that for anyone of a different faith who doesn't celebrate Christmas,"holiday music must be beyond annoying, right into offensive."

Got that far - had to stop. Had the immediate feeling of "Oh lord, here we go... preaching ahead."

Do I know you off-line? You sound like a friend. He squeed a few years ago when I let him burn borrow a recording with Riu Riu Chiu & Patapan. Favorite obscure carol: On This Day Earth Shall Ring. The best carols are religious ones. And anything from Dr. Demento, but that's a given.

doubt it, but I don't recognize that, and I'm off to look it up!

ThighsofGlory: "Christmas in Prison" by John Prine

"A Christmas Carol" by Tom Lehrer.

That is all.

Christmas Prison is AWESOME!!!

borg: Attention Christmas 24/7 radio stations "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is not a Christmas song.

no... it's more of a Date rape song, but more particularly, its a WINTER song, so it counts.. Remember, Sleigh ride and jingle bells, don't necessarily mention Christmas, but they are adopted as Christmas songs because they take place in winter.

you can dismiss this notion all you want, but you must admit, it would be odd to hear the song in the middle of june.

Isn't there an xkcd comic on this topic? Something along the lines of making the point that all popular Christmas music is from the 50s in order to make the baby boomers remember their childhood or something. Seems legit, though as each year passes I'm wonderin how much longer baby boomer culture will dominate America, suppose it will be until WWIII or something equally dramatic to cause a culture shift.

Worked at a big box store while in high school. Hearing the same X-mas songs everyday drove me insane.

Christmas music is okay, but Christmas music on the radio before it's even December, really drives me nuts. I am so sick of hearing it by mid-December that I leave my radio off for the last two weeks of the month.

This is pretty much the only Christmas song I actually like. Probably because nobody plays it, and therefore I only hear it when I want to hear it.

I love bizarre and obscure Christmas music. Just about every single artist out there has released Christmas music over every single musical genre out there. Traditional, lounge, country, rap, metal, techno/electronika, Ska, punk, Hawaiian, African. You name it, and I can probably drag out an example of the musical Genre being used to make Christmas music.

I pride myself on my expansive, and ever expanding collection of Christmas music, and this time of year is great because I can listen to it with impunity....

With that said... even I find the crap they pump into the stores to be trifling and insipid.

lets make this an awesome Christmas song thread!

Bob Dylan, Must be Santa
