I began my review of my favorite Christmas tunes yesterday here. Yesterday, I covered the classics. Today, I will cover the best of the rest. Essentially, anything made in the modern era not made by a guy name Nat or Bing. Again, these are in no particular order, I just felt like sharing my favorite Christmas tunes with the masses. And by masses, I’m being really, REALLY optimistic.
Anyone who knows me, knows I have a very strong attachment to The Beatles. So, naturally I have to include the following two songs.
John Lennon – Happy X-Mas
Paul McCartney – Wonderful Christmas Time
The Beach Boys – Little Saint Nick
Mariah Carey – All I Want for Christmas is You
Tom Petty – Its Christmas Time Again
Straight No Chaser – 12 Days of Christmas Medley (listen to this…you will not regret it!!)
SOUTH PARK SECTION:
Several years ago, the television show “South Park” did a Christmas special. This was the Christmas special to end all Christmas specials as it added several songs to my iPod playlist. Now, I must warn you. If you are easily offended by foul language, religious stereotypes, and all that jazz, then its probably best not to listen to this shit.
Eric Cartman – O’ Holy Night (Version A)
Eric Cartman – O’ Holy Night (Version B Full Album Version)
South Park – Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel (Content Advisory: some shitty language and some jokes about Jews)
Mr. Garrison – Merry F***ing Christmas (Content Advisory: lots of uses of the word fuck and some really funny religious jokes)
So there it is. The best of the rest of my favorites. I didn’t get any comments on my previous column. So, I’m left to assume that either nobody read the article and disagreed with my choices or you hate Christmas and will likely rot in hell. Its one of those.
Mark was born not in Enid, America but rather Okeene. At a very young age, his family transplanted to Enid and he has lived his entire life here except for a 4 year stint in the Kansas City area.
Mark was brought up listening to the jets roar overhead and sight of wheat trucks hauling in the harvest to some of the world's largest grain elevators. Mark strongly believes in Enid's potential and is currently raising his family here based on that belief. He also still believes in Santa Claus so take that for what it's worth
