Shall we build an alternative Christmas 2011 playlist?

Postby Symmetry on Tue Nov 29, 2011 12:07 am

Putting together a playlist for a Christmas party. Carols are easy, as are the classics from the crooners. Anything interesting, different, and preferably modern would be good as a suggestion. As always, I guess, go with your heart. Should be at least vaguelly Christmassy though.

Name that Christmas tune...

Police nabbed my dad.
The police nabbed my dad.
Police busted dad, drunk in public
Wasted on eggnog.

Police nabbed my dad.
The police nabbed my dad.
Police busted dad, drunk in public
Trashed on eggnog.

Can’t make the bail now he’s missing X-mas
No Christmas gifts cause he’s off the good list.
No Christmas cheer in the jail where he sits
And it’s breaking mommy’s heart.

I pick up a few miles per hour when that comes on while skiing...

That being said, Van Halen pretty much has the same effect.

Maaaan, you are the laziest party organiser ever! You probably ought to put Conquer Club banners up all round your house during dinner, seeing's how you've asked CC to pick everything down to the cologne you wear.

Bloodhound Gang - The Inevitable Return of the Great White Dope (Jesus will return to Earth)
Run Tings - Fires Burning (Mickey Finn Remix) (nothing is more festive than a nice fire)

Not sure if this is the "alternative" you meant. This is one of my favorites. My ultimate favorite is still Blue Christmas by Elvis.

The Twelve Days of Christmas by Bob and Doug Mackenzie has always been my favourite.

I've taught pretty much everybody I know to sing the Bob and Doug lyrics instead of the original..:)

These 2 are to be listened to together. They are the first 2 of 5 parts of "The Jerusalem Suite" but I couldn't find a version that goes right from one into the other as they do on the album. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVsHkwdG1fk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om_wFDaqueg

I gather that you weren't looking for classic carols, but this version of O Holy Night" is so sublimely beautiful that I had to include it: it's among my favorite songs , not just Christmas songs. Singing harmonies starting on verse 2 is my favorite vocalist, Matthew Ward. http://www.myspace.com/twilaparis/music ... t-34459035

Back to non-traditional Christmas songs, this one is from my favorite songwriter, the late Rich Mullins. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyGhlN_iaxQ
or if you prefer a punkier version (actually it's "ska" style): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0Vd7pQelzM
The right answer to the wrong question is still the wrong answer to the real question.
