O Holy Night

A beautiful Christmas song for you to celebrate the season. Feel free to sing along.

I'll take the melodious vocal stylings of Eric Cartman over that for my holiday cheer.

That song made me want to push sharp sticks into my ears, then I realized that was pretty much what had already happened.

That's amazing. My mother just asked me who died.

Good work.

I came across that version last year and it just makes the Christmas season. Every time I hear it, I fall down laughing.

Thank you. The Thomas Kinkade was also a nice creative touch, but I’m not sure which was more frightening.

Mike Malloy has “Oh Holy Nightmared” the crap out of me for the past 3-4 Christmases on Air America. But I missed the reprise last night on Nova M, because Sheldon Drobny has forbidden me to listen until someone in our family confesses to having killed Trotsky. Although Youtube has everybody but Milli Vanilli lip syncing, I’d sure like to find out who the actual artist is.

In the meantime, let’s not forget the Cratchits, Tiny Tim and the true Dickensian spirit of Christmas, “God help us every one.” Proving once again that you can have your Cake and Dame Edith too.

It's renditions, like these, that make me glad I'm a Jew.

I don't know the laws in your neck of the woods, Ken, but in San Jose you can get two to five for torturing a cat.

Yet another salvo in the culutre wars, as the liberal media establishment tries to ruin our fine traditions.

Okay, I knew this guy was in trouble from the first line. If you can't nail the comparatively easy early part, you know it ain't gonna end well. Still, I was completely unprepared for just how wrong it would go. You think it's done and BAM! He takes it into falsetto! That literally took my breath away with its awfulness. Then, amazingly, he takes it up another octave, I suppose in his never-ending, fruitless search for a key that suits his voice. It's just stunning, mostly because there's no hint of doubt or joking on the "singer's" part.

I'd never heard this before, unless you count the time I came across a moose that had a headcold. And had swallowed a set of bagpipes. And then been hit by a semi and dragged for three miles. By its testicles.

Ken, if I may be so bold...I wrote this holiday song. I hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed your blog.

I decided to have a listen from the office today. The woman in the office across me brings a dog to work from time to time. Today, for the first time, the dog came into my office and started howling at my computer... Great song!
