Up on the Housetop
Because this holiday tune appears on every beginning band's premiere concert program, it's one of my favorite to mock. [more inside]
What Child is This?
We all thought as hard as we could, to come up with a Christmas song that none of us hate, so we could do it semi-reverently, in a manner which at least resembles proper. It took so many takes to get it right that now we hate this song, too. [more inside]

Into the Night
I was determined to get something into the mefi challenge this month, and what's better subject material than Dracula? Nothing. The mix isn't the best, but I've been playing with it too long, so I'd rather have it out there in the atmosphere. Why not.

Just sneaking this one under the wire for the Hallowe'en challenge.
