    Christmas Music

    I have been streaming Christmas music on my PC the last few days and have been incredibly productive. Anybody else experience this?

    Although, I have to say the song "Santa's off on a sleigh ride" taken from Lou Reed's "Take a Walk on the Wild Side" was a little disturbing.

    Yep. I have Christmas music on my XM radio playing as I type this and it has actually been a pretty productive day.

    I truly dislike Christmas music. That being said it's hard not to laugh at Porky Pig's Blue Christmas.

    They're going to be in concert in Des Moines from the 12th to the 14th. A must see.

    Classic. We always play it during Thanskgiving Dinner. Somehow, we've lost the very first CD.

    You have great taste.

    Re: Christmas Music

    I love Christmas music! It's so dang cozy. It also makes me want to sit by the fireside, drink hot cocoa, snuggle up in a blanket, and watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!

    Re: Christmas Music

    Love, love, love Christmas music! There is one song about a guy meeting his ex-girlfriend at the grocery store that is played waaaaaaay too much here in Omaha. For the life of me I can't figure out why it's played during Christmas season. The only reference is that he saw her on Christmas Eve...that's it. After that it's a lame story. It really bugs the crap out of me.

    Re: Christmas Music

    OK. I grew up a pretty hard rock guy (60's 70's). But the one Christmas song that stops me in my tracks every single time I hear it is "Little Drummer Boy" by Johnny Cash.

    I love Mannheim and the Acapella Group and the Dan Fogelberg song shown above. But Johnny Cash - and the "Little Drummer Boy". The best ever. OK - I love almost ALL Christmas music, but Johnny Cash brings something different.

    I created a Pandora station from Bing Crosby White Christmas...get a good mix of the classic Christmas songs done the right way.

    Re: Christmas Music

    This isn't perfect, but the best I could come up with. About 2:30 in you'll hear Johnny start singing this song. Maybe it is the vision of my dad in ecstacy listening to this kind of thing, or maybe I just love it on my own. But this is Christmas.

    And what a simpler time. I miss it, even though I made fun of my parents for listening to this kind of stuff.
