RE: Comedy Death Ray's 'Do They Know it's Christmas' cover.  I, too, enjoy it immensely. 

I don't know if it's some west coast/east coast beef, but, as has been mentioned elsewhere on the boards, there seems to be someone missing from this so-called "All Star" line up. 

And that person's name rhymes with Schom Tarpling.

My cousin just hipped me to this hunk of holiday garbage: Neil Diamond's "Cherry Cherry Christmas". It's basically Neil Diamond wishing the world A Neil Diamond Christmas. He namechecks or quotes about a dozen of his own songs in it. It is one of the most self-indulgent pieces of garbage I have ever heard. (Still better than "Porcupine Pie" though).

I was killing time yesterday, so I was farting around in one of those TJ Maxx/Home Goods store (currently in a small town in the middle of PA) and I heard Santa Baby TWICE. One was the Eartha Kitt, and then the second version about 45 minutes later was like a dance mix version with some pop star type singing. I couldn't tell who it was.

Then ... then ... the worst Christmas song i think I have ever heard came on. It stank so bad, and I had to google it... turns out it's from a few years ago and somehow I'd been blissfully ignorant:

I don't care if Captain Sensible was in the Damned, or if this song is like a Big Statement about how commercial Christmas has become, it sucks.

Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?

My best guess is, I think most everyone else in that video is a standup/improv-type person, which Tom really isn't.

I like "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." I like it because I didn't figure out until last year that SPOILER
Santa Claus was the little girl's dad.

For me, it's not really Christmastime until I have the tree up and a few lights sprinkled in.  "Sleigh Ride" by Johnny Mathis gets me pumped.  Top notch.

I am partial to Mary J. Blige's "Christmas In the City."  It's the kind of song that can make a winter walk down a NYC street feel just perfect.

I think my favorite part about the whole Christmas season is having an excuse to listen to the Vince Guaraldi Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack.

The Madonna version of Santa Baby is especially creeepy.

Wait til you hear the Dakota Fanning version.
