This Weekend I’ll Be Listening to… some – erm – Christmas Songs December 21, 2013

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Culture, This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....

Thanks to IEL for linking to this, a year or two back, which set this idea off in my head.

Frosty the Snowman by the Cocteau Twins

Any other Christmas songs gratefully accepted.

Some happy enough Christmas songs… happy enough…

The Fleshtones – Hooray For Santa Claus

The Waitresses

Belle and Sebastian – Are you coming over for Christmas?

Some angry Christmas songs…

Fear Fuck Christmas

TV Smith – Xmas Bloody Xmas

A sad Christmas song…

Joey Ramone – Merry Christmas (I don’t want to fight tonight with you)

And another…(in more ways than one)

The Sonics – Don’t Believe Christmas

Some songs and music which may or may not be about Christmas at all…

Sciflyer – The Same Thing Goes for Christmas

Grimes – Christmas Song (feat. Jay Worthy)

Jesus and Mary Chain – Birthday

A song or two by an Irish or part Irish group…

I actually like Fairytale of New York, but I’ve been wondering do people know of other Irish Christmas songs?

Here’s one anyhow…

The Last Bandits – Christmas Morning

And here’s another, Stiff Little Fingers – White Christmas

Some good advice…

Half Man Half Biscuit – It’s cliched to be cynical at Christmas

And we end with a classic… of sorts…

Run, Run, Rudolph – Lemmy, Billy Gibbons, Dave Grohl

Feel free to add your own…

A Merry Christmas one and all!

Played this at our pre- Xmas ‘Vinyl Night’ this week (we make our own fun here in the shires) and got asked ‘what’s that got to do with Christmas?’ 🙂

Also played this: I’m the DJ who brings the fun

They’re great (as is response you got to Big Star).

Here’s one I didn’t particularly want to put in the selection because it’s so gloomy… but seeing as you opened that particular door!

This from Type O Negative Red Water (Christmas Mourning)

If one is in a depressed mood check out the lyrics.

On a happier note here’s more Fleshtones…

And for at least two people, not including me, involved in the CLR both now and previously, here’s Iron Maiden…

And two from my favourite Christmas album.


3. Mark - December 21, 2013

Aidan Walsh, Paul Cleary and Jonathan Philbin Bowman sing Xmas in 4 Dimension Together (1986):

I have this on 12″ vinyl. It includes a version of White Christmas and Rock My Brainy Head. The video’s not the same without the 4D glasses.


4. Jolly Red Giant - December 22, 2013

Any decent X-mas music list has to include Greg Lake’s ‘I Belive in Father Christmas’
