Christmas Rappin'

Have a Happy Christmas

I'm sure Bing Crosby is doing 360's in his grave

Billy Jackson & the Citizen Band - Have a Happy Christmas

Pac Man Xmas

This has got to be one of the creepiest, psychedelic, hypnotizing Christmas albums of all time. How and why did this ever seem like a good idea? It's just sick enough to make it on ARAWA. Enjoy the ganja cookies Santa, you're gonna need 'em

Christmas Disco

So, I'm going through hundreds of Christmas songs this month for the always cheap mix cd stocking stuffer. The amount of shitty music made for this holiday is really unbelievable. I can just imagine some fancy recording studio with vocal artists practicing scales right before they record "Jingle BALLS" or "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer". Naturally, I'm always slightly pleased when a odd gem reveals itself in the plethora of feces that is Christmas music. I've never really made the connection between Disco and the birth of baby Jesus, but if you're drunk caroling at the office Christmas party, might as well be to something you can dance to. The Snowbelle track by Camille seems almost good enough to drop at the club, or maybe that's just the eggnog talking

Camille - Snowbelle
Camille - White Christmas
(it's a little painful, but what isn't about this song)

Lonely Christmas

I have a sort of love/hate relationship with this time of year. As much as I loathe the commercialization of the holidays, the sheer amount of banal-camp-kitsch that celebrates this season makes my heart fill with love. I think Charlie Brown sums up my feelings exactly:

Charlie Brown - Xmas Depression

I told myself not to post Xmas related junk to ARAWA, but I just couldn't resist the temptation. I apologize ahead of time for the next several posts. The season is upon us and I can't help myself.

and whats xmas without a little EBM
