I do have to say that during the last few days WFMU has somehow made me like holiday music again! An xmas miracle! (Although, of course, it's the wFMU-ness of these holiday songs I like)

Talking of which, Adrian, I guess you have more commercial fare being played in stores, shopping malls etc your side of the pond?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/23/14 9:10pm Irene Trudel:

Happy Merry Krimble everybody! Hoping to put you all in the holiday spirit. Sean, you'll be happy to note Mr. Met in a stocking cap near the bottom of the tree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:13pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Just spotted him, awesome Irene! Great article in yesterday's NY Times, our Metsies are the same odds as that mob in the Bronx for next season making the playoffs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:17pm adrian in mpls:

@Sean - yr right. you end up hearing the same song over and over again wherever you go. like, the same 10 songs everywhere. thankfully, i haven't been subjected to any of it this year - thanks to the combo of headphones and no money to do any shopping with!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:19pm Sean in Bristol UK:

This yuletide music is a blessed relief from the usual offerings on the usual music stations over here which got me thinking. Anybody fancy listing the top three crimble tunes of a more commercial bent. The criteria is one, the choice of tunes makes you want to throw an imaginary brick at an imaginary radio and two the choices brings you out in a cold sweat, as in you will or have heard this fine tunage whilst shopping at the eleventh hour to get that bag of walnuts or jar of cranberry you forgot whilst battling the hordes at your local Target or Safeway!
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 9:21pm Van in DC:

I knew I was forgetting something. Dang it. I was watching a movie.

Hi Irene and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/23/14 9:22pm Irene Trudel:

Yeah, it's inundation of the same old Xmas tunes in every store. Maybe that's one of the reasons it was chaos in the grocery store I stopped in earlier tonight. I'm trying hard to at least play alternative versions of the usual Christmas fare.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:22pm Sean in Bristol UK:

My three in no particular order is Wham "Last Christmas", Slade "Merry Christmas" and Chris Rea "Driving Home for Christmas". Chris, you have been driving home for Christmas for the last thirty years or so. Obviously you are lost, you need to invest in a satnav, pal!!

Good tunes to wrap gifts by :)
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 9:26pm Van in DC:

I was actually watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty...looked to be a good film. I'll resume tomorrow :)
  Tue. 12/23/14 9:26pm V Priceless:

For some reason I always find myself revisiting Strawbs 'Benedictus' this time of year, though not a holiday tune per se.
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 9:28pm Van in DC:

Irene, the tree looks gorgeous! All of those VHS tapes,... wow! Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:29pm adrian in mpls:

Hmmmm.....good question on those songs, Sean. (And I must confess, I really like the Wham and Slade songs!) I think mine have to be: "Do They Know It's Christmas?", "Jingle Bell Rock", and that absolutely horrible Chipmunks Christmas song -- that last one makes me stabby!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:30pm Sean in Bristol UK:

I have an unlimited card with my local multiplex, as many films you can watch for $20 a month. I was scrapping the bottom of the barrel over the weekend, went to see "Annie", wasn't as grim as I thought it would be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:31pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Adrian, 'stabby', love it! That's my phrase for this holiday season.

Movies: I suppose over the long weekend that at some point I will go see the final Peter Jackson Hobbit film. Just to close it out. And then I'll go see Interstellar in IMAX again :)

Yes, my friend, scroll back to read the fun rules!!

Ah, so basically guilty pleasures of Xmas songs past? That sort of thing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:37pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Yes sir, I could add a plethora of hits to my list that makes me want to hibernate!
  Tue. 12/23/14 9:38pm Robert:

Are there other lyrics to this "Christmas Bells"? I recall it as somehow having nothing to do with Christmas. Or maybe I'm confusing it with a very similar song.
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 9:38pm Van in DC:

David Bowie & Bing Crosby - Little Drummer Boy is one

Dory Previn!
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 9:40pm Van in DC:

I can't think of another. Mostly because except for a certain KaTe song, I pretty much hate Christmas songs in general, and the whole holiday in particular.
  Tue. 12/23/14 9:41pm Robert:

Now I recognize the tune I have it mixed up with, I just can't recall the name or lyrics.

Well, so much for the idea of listening to Tom Scharpling tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:48pm Sean in Bristol UK:

@Jake, yes, Happy Boxing Day, my favourite time of the holiday season, down the pub for a few drinky-poos!
  Tue. 12/23/14 9:48pm Robert:

Got it! It's the refrain from the one that starts, "You go way too fast/If you don't slow down, you're going to crash." "Christmas Bells" reminds me of its refrain.
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 9:48pm Van in DC:

Grrrr Sean I spend so much time trying to BLOCK OUT Christmas and its songs that you could not have asked me a harder question :)
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 9:50pm Van in DC:

But, by the way, lovely Christmas green with red letters on the playlist. Perfectly done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/23/14 9:51pm Sean in Bristol UK:

Maybe I could jog your memory, Mr Mccartney, Miss Carey, jonah Lewis just to shame some illustrious company
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 9:54pm Van in DC:

I would be more likely to remember something by Michael Oldfield, Japan, Toyah, Cocteau Twins, Pentangle, Sandy Denny, Tangerine Dream, or even Nina Hagen
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/23/14 9:54pm JakeGould:

Cheers Sean! I only drink nowadays to celebrate, so if I were in the U.K. I would share a pint with you!

JANE SIBERRY!!!!

thank you!!!

Now you get a song like this and you feel all warm, fuzzy and full of Christmas cheer. Come on Van, embrace this wonderful time of year, you know you want to!!

I'm usually driving home from work and catch the last part of your show but tonight, Maggie and I are listening in the coziness of our own home. Still adjusting to this Tuesday night slot and curious about the switch. Great Xmas show! Going to listen to Coltrane My Favorite Things ans and old Gerald Trimble lp later.

Irene, by the way, I didn't agree with a lot of Soundcheck's end of year rankings. did you have anything to do with that?

Just curious, aren't you guys all turkeyed out after last month's shindig?
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 10:18pm Van in DC:

Was that NPR? Maybe it was. I've been looking at a lot of different year end lists. Maybe it wasn't Soundcheck then.

@Sean - no.

:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/23/14 10:19pm Irene Trudel:

Van, I had nothing to do with the choices for Soundcheck this year. It was all chosen by others on staff. And I definitely have nothing to do with NPR music-- a whole different entity. Hi KP! Hope you and The Missus enjoy your Christmas there.

hey Irene. I see on your flikr you saw John Pizzarelli. He rehearses here a lot. Definitely our NICEST client. His dad was in the other day with him, too.

@Jake, I will raise a tankard of Christmas themed mead to you, sir. there will probably be an ale with a snazzy name, Rudolf the Red Nose ale or something of that ilk!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/23/14 10:24pm Irene Trudel:

Hey Mike! Yes, Pizzarelli and his wife Jessica Molasky were a big part of the Jonathon Schwartz Xmas Show at Birdland, which I helped mix. They really are nice people and keep Mr. Schwartz from going off on too many talk tangents. And John organizes the band every year. I've actually grown quite fond of the event.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/23/14 10:26pm JakeGould:

Van, my musical life has been tons better since I stopped paying attention to any music list… I think the last ones I read or paid attention to were in Tower Record’s “Pulse”… Those “desert island discs” lists.
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 10:27pm Van in DC:

Irene - there was a certain DVD I thought might be available for XMas, which I guess it is not. It remains my promise to you to get you a copy when it is out. I'm talking KaTe.

@Jake - I don't really pay them any attention at all actually. I just go by what I find out from these people right here. At FMU.
Avatar Tue. 12/23/14 10:29pm Van in DC:

regarding musical year end lists - it is only because I follow some accounts on twitter so as not to miss my treasured artists that I know of such year end lists.

Caught up with the rest of the show, as ever 'tis a thing of beauty, thank you so much, Irene

I gotta hear that Jane Siberry again :)
Avatar Wed. 12/24/14 10:35am Van in DC:

Yep. Same result from the "Calling All Angels".

Frisson. Chills.

Gorgeous.

By the way Irene - the back to back of the Siberry song with the KaTe song was genius. From calling all angels to being among them...nicely done.

Merry Christmas
