I had no idea until last year that "Do You Hear What I Hear" was written in response to the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Did I overlook Tom's contributions to the festive holiday orgy of seasonal  'tuneage' happening right here at ye olde Brian Wilson dawt calm?  And David and Popeye...the spinach eating non sailor...voted and also added more in the way of mirth...if not frankincence and myrrh.  The Gold [votes] I saw.

Bing?  Gotta have some Bing.  It wouldn't be Christmas w/o Der Bingle.

Thanks all.  There hasn't been such a traditional 'feel' over at our place this year...but ALL the best to ALL of you.  There'll be no coal in YOUR stockings this December two-five so hang 'em with confidence. [by the chimney with care.  And no ... Nick Walusko won't soon be there. [tongue]]

Bonnie Bella inspired me.  

From the same We Wish You a Metal Christmas album as her Lemmy track, 

Ronnie James Dio with Tony Iommi

Lee, I'm locked and loaded to vote now - and HERE they are:

Gold - to the Moodies take on Joy - Heavenly
Silver - to his Bobness - making it all FUN
Bronze to Brian and company - making things joyful in so many ways
Tin - was the first song I heard this week (working upwards) - and those Chicagoans are grand, but the above are grander!

She "over-sings" at times but CAN sing it:


Doris brings it:

Martin nails it:


Happy, joyous holidays to ALL!

Oh look...more votes.  DAN and Al have weighed in.  And...there are more songs too.  *t*...and John...and kds have also thrown a few more logs onto our blazing yule log of musical notes crackling away out of your speakers.  [must be vinyl.  Jah knows *t* [smile]]

Again I urge those who aren't sure ... to join in.  The more the merrier.  ['cept for the moving van guy.]

Almost Christmas...time for another Queen's message:




Plus, a salute to the postal service in their busy season. Tom already posted Gayla's classic Hippopotamus tune, but it's been featured in this USPS commercial I've seen a couple of times. A cautionary tale of a child's fleeting obsessions (hope it's accessible overseas):




Plus a postie's jaded but honest view of the season (If you've never seen the full show, that's Dan "Homer Simpson" Castellaneta as the postie and Drew Barrymore as the dog, Olive):

My traditional Christmas song votes.

GOLD - Dylan. Thank goodness for Dylan.  Less whimsical than the rest.  Pass that bottle.

SILVER - Chicago.  Snow.  Christmas.  No.  Sunburn.  Christmas.  Yes.

BRONZE - Brian.  Lot's of Christmas in this one.  I don't like Brian voice here. 

TIN - Moody Blues.  I'd decided it was an instrumental and then it surprised me.  Not a song I'd play again in my entire life, and if it came on the radio, my internal monologue would take over and I'd probably remember to get the rubbish bags and milk for once.   

Lisa, here's another Christmas advert.  You never know what Santa does for a crust in the off-season.

Gold - Joy to the World (Brian Wilson - 1997)
Recorded and first released years before the rest of What I Really Want for Christmas, and all voices are Brian’s (thanks, AGD). It does the job. The only one of these four I have in my collection.

Silver - In the Quiet of Christmas Morning (Bach 147) (The Moody Blues - 2003)
Bordering on muzak. Nonetheless, very listenable.

Bronze - Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow (Chicago - 1998)
So that’s Lee Loughnane singing. I experienced Chicago live in 2010, on the same bill as Brian. Thought they were terrific. Bit hard to relate to on a scorching summer’s day here in the southern hemisphere.

Participant - Must Be Santa (Bob Dylan - 2009)
Not mad about polkas. I like and respect Dylan.

DAN, Graciegirl and bonnie, et al, if you ever want to confuse an audience, sing the words to ‘Away in a Manger’ to the tune of Jimmy Barnes’ ‘Working Class Man’. Trust me, it works. Very Christmassy. Very Aussie.

3 more sets of numbers to add into the final tally tomorrow.  Bonnie, Darren and CM all joining in with their 'takes' on this weeks tuneage.  Summertime in Auz eh Darren?  Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

I just  L O A T H E  winter.  The only thing that kept me from moving to Jamaica all those years ago?  Hurricanes.  That would be even worse.  [well hurricanes and the dishonest nature of SOME of the inhabitants.]

Santa Claus can have the North Pole...and ALL of the snow. Every flake.  I'm usually pretty good with the entire fantasy of this whole Christmas 'thing'...for about a work week...max.  I don't do as well with Jack and the Beanstalk or Snow White.  But heh!!!  You can usually fool most of the people most of the time.
