This is about the least effort you could put into wishing a merry f'n Christmas. Now with sleighbells. Of course.
Sometimes I just can't stop myself.
Merry Christmas, everybody.
Merry Christmas, everybody.
Merry Christmas! Here's an arrangement of Bennington, No. 408t in the Shenandoah Harmony (www.shenandoahharmony.com). Poetry by Isaac Watts 1706, original shape note arrangement by Billings, 1770. [more inside]
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]
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]
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]
Vaguely medieval and dirge-like. [more inside]
Despite my lack of religion and the fact that this song has been done to death, I thought I'd give it a shot.
German, anonymous, probably 1500s. Still learning to harmonise using GarageBand. [more inside]
My take on the McCartney Christmas tune. [more inside]
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 made my children to sing on another Christmas song. In three-part harmony. Merry Christmas, everybody.
Impromptu version of the holiday classic. This closed out the night for the Smoke Benders' last gig of 2011. Video here.
Standard epic/apocalyptic hip-hop end-of-the-world Millimeters of Mercury take on a standard Christmas melody.
My friend John has a Victorian-style punchcard music box. We put the punched strip for a well-known Christmas carol in upside down, and this is what we got. [more inside]
mashy mashed sound collage featuring our cat the big delicious on solo cat voice. [more inside]
We tried to write a jazzy, quiet version. This is what happened instead. Cheers!
The stations of the cross won't play my single. [more inside]
A cover of a holiday classic. This is my first real multi-track project. [more inside]
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).
one of my least favourite carols, but still... [more inside]
My son's singing debut just in time for Xmas.
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...

My take on creating a song based on the hilarious "For Grigori, I sold goat" -- A Christmas Mystery letter.
So there was this awesome ask.MeFi post, "For Grigori I sold goat" -- A Christmas Mystery. [more inside]
Every year I like to do at least one Holiday tune for myself, family & friends. [more inside]
An arrangement for solo electric guitar.
A Post-Christmas song for you, featuring autoharp, marimba, and some other things. Thanks to orthogonality for helping with the name! [more inside]
A Christmas themed song I wrote, about pressuring Santa Claus to buy me a gun. [more inside]
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.
A Christmas song written by me and sung by Tay Zonday. [more inside]
Just a little carol we recorded for our holiday card. roll truck roll on dulcimer, firemonkey on trumpet and horn. [more inside]
Short, with improvised and awkwards chunks, various mistakes, and a outro that flirts with crashlanding. Peace.
From the "Island of Misfit Toys" scene in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. What was wrong with the doll? [more inside]
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.....
I like to do Christmas music every year to add to my Christmas cards. [more inside]
This is one of my favorite bits of not just holiday music but music in general, but it's not something I usually hear people rock out to. This is my attempt to help change that. [more inside]
I'm ashamed but this one wrote itself. [more inside]
Paul Sjolund's choral arrangement, simplified down to 2 voices and a guitar. Merry Christmas!
It's Christmas... and some of me knows some of Christmas sounds like some of this. [more inside]
In honor of the big guy's birthday, a song about one possibility for his holiness's return. When Revelation comes/You won't find me hitting no big kettle drums...

Tomas Luis de Victoria's version of O Magnum Mysterium was my favorite Christmas song back in the days of high school choir. Here is my own lo-fi rendition. [more inside]
Just a little something my wife and I made for our Christmas card. roll truck roll on dulcimer, roll truck roll's wife on pennywhistle and tambourine, the rain on rain sounds.
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]
