That Time Of The Month: Christmas Edition (Mikela)

December 18, 2012

I have a confession to make. I love Christmas music. It’s as cliché as my annual viewings of Love, Actually. But Christmas music gets a bad rap, and I hope to change that. We’re inundated before we’ve even finished our turkey dinner; bombarded by the sounds of Josh Groban as we shop for paper towels and get our teeth cleaned.

However, amongst the incessant kitsch of All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth, there are some songs that genuinely ignite the Christmas spirit from within. So I’ve compiled my girly music Christmas Party playlist. We’ve got some throwback soul, a pop star staple, and even a few girl groups, courtesy of Phil Spector. You know, before he got all murdery. Merry Chrismas, y’all. If you need me, I’ll be fast-forwarding through all the Laura Linney scenes. Girlfriend caught a tough break.

Happy Metal Fun Time: Christmas Edition (Chuck)

December 17, 2012

A long time ago there was an ancient ritual, a rite of passage for young ones coming of age, a time when we believed in myth and circumstance, and suspended disbelief and left any notion of reality at the door, until you discovered that what your parents had been portraying for years were lies. Of course I am referring to Jesus. Actually I am really talking about Santa Clause, but you could go either way.

I hated Christmas for years, as a metal guy, the punishment of sappy songs and carolers sickens my earholes, yet many people would never think there was holiday music in the style of metal. Though there was a little resistance to doing a Christmas playlist, I could not help myself. You might not have known these songs were real, but now you can never unlisten to these gems. I hope you enjoy, Happy Holidays and stuff …
