Deck the Halls

This is about the least effort you could put into wishing a merry f'n Christmas. Now with sleighbells. Of course.

Who's Gonna Keep it Together?

Kringle steals the singer's girlfriend and takes her to Berlin in his sleigh. Hardly a nice thing to do, especially around the holidays. [more inside]

Christmas in Tokyo

Three days into December; it has got to be time for some Christmas songs! Four years ago I wrote this song, with lyrics in Swedish, to communicate my Christmas melancholy to my family. Two years later I was still sad, but now in English, and on camera... [more inside]

Christmas Eve (redhanded)

Yay pop-punk. Prequel to Chrismas and July, which I posted a few days ago. Part of a weird little vein of story song I've been working with lately. [more inside]

O Holy Night

Despite my lack of religion and the fact that this song has been done to death, I thought I'd give it a shot.

mmHg - Hark!

I made this a few years ago, a remix of Hark, the Angels Sing. It's completely cheeseball — but some of my friends actually LIKE it, so I guess maybe it's good?

I'm Dreaming of a White Russian

Every year, I do some sort of travesty of a Christmas song for my music webcomic. This year, I decided to get crazy and do an in-character recording of it as the band in the strip. So the Awesome Boys are proud to present "(I'm Dreaming of a) White Russian." (the parens in the song title make it extra-Alternative).

From Olga

Arnaud wasn't just about the techno noise. He was an enormous fan of Laurie Andersen's Oh, Superman and had assembled a vocoder himself by taking apart the family's old tube TV. His mother Olga, who was not an educated woman, could not write without speaking aloud, and so one day when he heard her writing a letter, he snuck a microphone under the rickety table, fed it to his home-made recorder, and began to play along...

Fuck You, Motherfucker (It's Christmas)

This is a quick cover of a friend's Christmas song that I always admired. JB (the writer) also contributed background vocals. This is NSFW but in a cheerful way I think.

Christmas Wrapping

Cover of The Waitresses classic recorded for Christmas 2006 and featuring my daughters Jennifer and Stephanie on vocals. Their English accents make it sound like a Bananarama outtake. I will shortly be uploading something that will almost certainly qualify for the "Naughty" podcast even if it doesn't make the cut.....

The Day of the Christmas Parade

Hollywood is famous for its annual Christmas Parade, which inspired the song "Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)", which Gene Autrey wrote after playing Santa in the parade and hearing children call out to him. I decided to write my own song about the event, as experienced by slightly older children -- the homeless teens who used to (and probably still do) squat in abandoned buildings and under bridges in Hollywood. Ah, memories. [more inside]
