Christmas Season Tag!

My brutha from anotha mutha Scott tagged me. I am supposed to list my top 5 favorite holiday songs. Now I could list the traditional stuff but you all know that would not be like me so here it goes.

5. Soulful Christmas – James Brown – This song is hilarious, especially when the line “James Brown loves you” is sung. I laugh everytime!

4. The Christmas Song – Whitney Houston – What makes this a gem is her bad improvising (think American Idol tryouts) and the fact that she sings, “to see if Reindeers really know how to fly!” Really Whitney? ReinDEERS? Wow.

3. Little Drummer Boy – David Bowie & Bing Crosby – This one is for real. I love this version and although it is weird watching the two of them singing together, it truly is a beautiful song. Check that out.

2. Do They Know It’s Christmas Time – Band Aid – Before USA for Africa. Before Farm aid. Band Aid sang this awesome song. With Bono, Simon le Bon (Duran Duran!), Paul Young, and many others, how could this not be great! I love this song.

And my number one pick this holiday season.

1.The Heat Meiser Song – From TV’s Christmas Special “A Year Without a Santa Claus.” I am sure many of you remember those claymation type Christmas specials like “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Santa Claus is coming to town” but this one was my favorite. Cold Meiser is pretty sweet too but HM’s hair-do gives him the win! Check it out!

I tag Minnesota Nice, Keith, MileMasterSarah, and my sista from anotha mista Allison.

Damnit - I can't see youtube stuff at work... I'll have to check it out when I get home.

And I know you were totally rocking out to my Run DMC right?!

heat meiser rocks.

I liked that the brits got together and sang "...feed the world..." and the US responded with "We are The World". Sorta like, hey, feed us!

Perhaps that was just my wonky take on it ;)

I totally second the Heat Meister thing. It's the best!

If you need a copy of Heat Miser (which I misspelle rather amazingly in my last comment), I put mine up on my yousendit account, so go forth and download! It's iTunes format.

Here it is.

Nice choices. I'm pretty sure some band did a decent cover of Heat Miser a while back. Gotta love Whitney. Maybe she should go to school before she decides to "teach the children."

Shannon said...

I'm going to have to listen to Whitney's version. It sounds like a hoot.

Erica said...

I do my own Whitney to the BandAid song LOL!

I was shopping the other day (scary, yes i know) and the Ice Miser/Heat Miser song came on in some store, as covered by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, I believe.

It was awesome. I was bopping around Bath and Body Works! I didn't really know the song until was one of my roommate's favorite holiday tunes.
