As we all prepare for our office parties, some of us are thinking about the Xmas-holiday playlist for those miserable couple hours of small talk. Have no fear the Review Stalker is here!
To start out with this list of lists. The Flamming Lips always have the best attitude toward this time of year. If you have seen them live before you know what I mean(there has never been a show of their’s where I didn’t walk away all fuzzy inside), where they wish it were Christmas all year around. Get their track from the is/yes blog “Christmas at the Zoo and A Change at Christmas (Say it Isn’t So)“. See them live. buy a record.
Next up: You should visit: Bag of Songs who is posting a track a day until the grand day. I say just do it all at once but here are a few highlights so far. Elvis Presley – “Merry Christmas Baby” day 10,Ryan Adams – “Hey Parker, It’s Christmas” Day 9,
and John Lennon’s – Happy Xmas (War Is Over) Day 8.
For indie prog rockers check out The Dismemberment Plan – This Christmas. it’s not very jingly but Alas a cool track posted on can you see the sunset. If you dig the older rock, RockSellout.com posted Redd Kross’s – “Super Sunny Christmas”,Ramones – “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Wanna Fight)” and Rufus Wainwright – “Spotlight On Christmas”. If you dig these you are now in the AAA market. (Adult Alternative)
