It's not really that satanic. And you can still dance to it Peanuts-style.

Finished this yesterday, just in time for the new challenge!

I was expecting metal, but instead I got awesome crazy noises! Thanks for this.

I think these are probably the same sounds Vince Guaraldi heard in his head when he composed this song, but he only knew how to play the piano. Awesome job!

Nice, way to go. abc123xyzinfinity has it right.

Reminds me a lot of Mark Mothersbaugh's early TV scores from the '80s, esp. "Pee Wee's Playhouse," but run through some grimy noise filters. This is a good thing.

Ha ha, this is fun! I like the chorus best -- the way it sort of only hints at parts of the melody. And the bridge(s), which sound like Donkey Kong levels! Yeah!

(You should add the "mefimusicchallenge" tag to this so that it shows up on this page.)

I can't dance to that middle part too well....

Not that satanic but they'd definitely play it in a goth club. I loved it!

This is pure awesome. Digicrunch!

I loooooove the change of gears at 1:10 (the part jessamyn can't dance to?). But wow, this whole thing is delicious.

Man, I missed this one the first time around. It's a good thing my special lady friend found it and put it on a bizarre Christmas mix we listened to at her sister's house on Sunday (note: they were all MeFiMusic Christmas songs).

This is really fun. The title is genius.

This is still one of my favorite songs in my vast and weird itunes library.

It's been ten years and I still listen to this every Christmas.
