    If there's a thread for this, I apologize for missing it. I'll start with the one that continues to top my personal list.

    I was just getting ready to post a Christmas Music thread. I'm looking to go with more traditional Christmas music for our show next year.

    Things like:
    Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
    Frosty the Snowman
    You're a mean one Mr. Grinch


    What are some other traditional Christmas songs would you recommend?

    Oh Holy Night & Silent Night (of course!). But I have to admit I heard a version of the Little Drummer Boy that brought me to tears (the one with Idina Menzel, it was the brief but powerful drum solo that got me).

    Don't get me wrong... there are Christmas tunes that I really like, and typically year after year just as the holiday season is upon us I'm like "Ah, how nice"....

    ....but every year without fail somewhere around mid-December I'm like "Enough Already"!!!...

    .... and through over exposure where ever I go, or every commercial on TV trying to be cute and clever (such as this Cincinnati Bell ad that I'm up to here with)...



    ... just to survive it without going out of my mind, I begin to cynically and almost psychotically, out loud even when I'm alone, parodize every Christmas song to the point of shameful sophomoric disrespect rearranging and improvising the words to the point that maybe only a 13 year old boy might find them humorous.

    If I'm out in a store and you'd listen close enough you'd hear me singing under my breath my rude and nasty newborn lyrics right over top of the original.

    No song is sacred, and no matter how originally beautiful it is will escape my destruction of it.

    In truth It's not a sign of me surviving the season, it's truly of sign of me going nuts, and I'm almost certain that it could be determined borderline, if not full blown clinical.

    "Symphony No. 9 ('Ode to Joy')" - Ludwig van Beethoven (Poem by Friedrich Schiller)

    I hear this every year in church even though wasn't written as a Christmas song.
    "... Seek him in the heavens
    Above the stars he must dwell."



    Flash mob symphony. I love it when a piece of music comes together.

    Haven't seen that one before, but that's pretty awesome!

    Reminded me of this flash mob at some mall that I'd forgotten about:
