Just wanted to pop in here today and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Since, like most of you, tomorrow will be a day for family, friends and food. Needless to say I won't be posting my usual Aqua Blue Friday theme. I know. I see that lonely teardrop falling from your eye. It'll be OK, I promise.
And, like most of you, I'm sure you're all sick to death of hearing the same ol' Christmas songs at the mall, at Target, on the radio, etc. over and over and over. So if you get bored of (or extremely annoyed with or want to kill) your family tomorrow and need to get the hell away from them for a while, I'm sharing a few of my favorite "non-traditional" holiday songs for you to listen to/watch on YouTube clips. As much as I adore the Christmas classics from Elvis, Bing, Sinatra, Dean Martin, Johnny Cash etc., sometimes a girl just needs to rock out. Enjoy!
Merry Christmas, happy winter solstice, happy whateverthehellitisyoudoordonotcelebrate! See you all back on regular schedule this Sunday!
"Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues. A little depressing, a little angry, all Irish and totally cool. (It rocks out at the 1:25 mark.)
"Merry Christmas (I don't Want to Fight Tonight)" by the Ramones. (Starts to rock at the 0:35 mark.)
"Oi to the World" by the Vandals." Don't judge. Google the lyrics if you don't already know them. It has a great message.
"Christmas in Hollis" by Run DMC. Set to a Charlie Brown Christmas. Genius.
