always winter

as the winter winds litter london with lonely hearts

Well, tomorrow TBRE procures a tree, and I procure a new washing machine, and she will install the washing machine and bake cookies and I will put up the tree and make egg nog. And then friends will come over and help us eat and drink and hang up shiny things.

Hey. We know how to have fun.

Comments

I am deeply fond of Gefilte Joe and the Fish's Hanukkah Rocks, which used to come on a Shield of David-shaped 45. Not to mention Christmas At Ground Zero.

Though, no (Eric Bogle) Santa Bloody Claus? ;)
Novelty alone does not suffice. I have to actually like the song.
Ah. I actually sort of do. ;)

It's not one of his that makes me cry.
Must be just about Xmas. I even started listening to A Very Scary Solstice t'other day.

(Although It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Fish-Men edges out I Saw Mommy Kissing Yog-Sothoth for my fave of that album.)

^_^

Gotta say, there's a whole lotta awesome in that list, makes me want to track down the songs I don't know to see if they are at least as awesome as the ones I do know...
You should know that you are responsible for me now owning both A Very Scary Solstice, An Even Scarier Solstice, and a tentacle stocking.

;-)
Glad to be of service...

=]
As usual, a fascinatingly diverse playlist! With a few Halloween carols mixed in! Many songs I've never head, some of which I will definitely be seeking out. How could I not want to give a listen to I Saw Mommy Kissing Yog-Sothoth?
Do you know:

Josh Ritter, Empty Hearts
Mountain Goats, This Year

?

I mean, I love "Snow Is Gone," despite its sad, sad sentiment. (It's like the opposite of the happy bouncy cheerful George R. R. Martin family motto!) But "Empty Hearts" is my New Year's Eve song every year, with the chorus, "Don't let me into this year with an empty heart, with an empty heart."

On the other hand, "I am gonna make it through this year if it kills me," gets me through the lussekatter every year. (For reference, the Mountain Goats are the source of "Up the Wolves," the song timprov and I did at 4th St. that made you boggle and go, "I wrote that book!")
I know the Ritter. But I don't own it. Don't know the Mountain Goats.
My computer has decided to throw a hissy and not give me sound any more just when I want to be in the middle of a dozen things and not reboot.

So I hope this is what it says on the label: This Year.
Seems like a good song.

Pity about that post-Dylan nasality in the singing style that makes so much modern alternative music unlistenable-to for me....
That's always my worry when introducing people to the Mountain Goats, yep, especially if they've heard one or two songs as sung by me and timprov and liked them.
Alas. You guys can totally sing me their songs, though!
Deal.
No "Darcy the Dragon"??? :(

I keep meaning to buy & download the Barenaked Ladies' Christmas songs. I have a couple on a mix cd someone gave me a million years ago, and I love them.
Now you just need the Venture Brothers version of "Fairytale of New York." :D
Yay! We conquered the WORLD today. And now I am really tired.
It got the tree trimmed...

Come on over. I''ll make another batch of cookies.
