    Barenaked Ladies for the peppy holiday songs. Sarah McLachlan for the depressing ones.

    Just kidding! But he does Blue Christmas like nobody’s business! I usually like a mix of singers on my Christmas music so “Now that is what I call Christmas” is my favorite Christmas album.

    Generally I don’t like celebrity Christmas albums. However, my favorite Christmas songs as sung by celebrities are Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth by Bing Crosby and David Bowie, Sleigh Ride by the Ronettes, and Here Comes Santa Claus by Gene Autry. I like how he says “Santy Claus”.

    My favorite Christmas song ever technically isn’t a cover, but it IS the artist Porn Orchard PRETENDING to be Tom Waits and Peter Murphy in a song called “This Holiday Season”. He does it so convincingly that it takes quite a bit of research to find that the song is not “Christmas Sucks”.

    If you’re outside of a firewall, i encourage you to youtube either one, or any combination of the names above, and you’ll get a treat for the ears.

    Otherwise, here are the blessed lyrics!

    Oh, give me a noose I can hang from the tree
    I need no excuse to end my misery
    This holiday season is all the more reason to die

    Oh, pull up a stool and an ear to a fool
    Once found some solace in the season of yule
    This holiday season is all the more reason to cry

    I put on my mittens, one green and one red
    And I walk alone where they bury the dead
    The snow falls as I breathe
    It’s a Gothic, death-rock Christmas eve

    The bottle is empty
    The sleigh has a flat
    The stripper in my bed is ugly and fat
    Her tassels are tangled and what’s worse
    My jingle won’t jangle

    This time of the year makes me sick to my guts
    All this good cheer is a pain in the nuts
    When it’s your career to be down in the dumps
    Tidings of comfort and joy really suck

    I feel like St. Nicholas is pulling my leg
    This thing we call “Christmas” is a sorry black plague
    This holiday season is
    All the more reason to die
