Default Best Decemberween Music Forever Santadome!

Welcome to the Santadome! Grab some cookies and hot cocoa and be prepared to vote for your favoritest of festive holiday tunes, beginning with:

Mr. WildcatJF's choice of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's cover of Mr. Heatmiser from Year Without a Santa Claus. It's jazzy! Also looking to open a present early, though, is BEAT and his Christmas (?) song This Year for Presidents' Day I'm Giving Up On Rock N Roll by Bomb the Music Industry.




More punk carols come at you with behemoth's choice: 12/25 from U.S. Bombs. Beat risks the naughty list by appearing twice today, this time with the more straightforward The First Noel performed by the Portland Choir and Orchestra.


Voting closes at 6 PM PST tomorrow.

I was confused at first as I never knew the Miser songs were just named Heatmiser. The second I start playing that Lumber gasped with joy and started dancing, this version is great!

I'm going to have to think a bit more about the second match, I like 'em both.

Edit: I'll go with First Noel.

I couldn't last more than two minutes of that miser song, and I prefer quiet dignity in traditional carols over overblown pomp so I'm going President's Day and 12/25.

I don't like punk that much so this is a weird place to be.

The first two to make it onto the nice list are Mr. Heatmiser and The First Noel.

Our first stocking stuffer today is Sarge's pick, Noel from contemporary Christian artist Chris Tomlin and featuring the otherwordly vocal stylings of Lauren Daigle. Against it is the iconic One More Sleep Till Christmas from The Muppet Christmas Carol, as giftwrapped by WildcatJF.




Sarge brings it again, this time with the quiet, introspective version of "Veni Vedi" (O Come O Come Emmanuel by Manneheim Steamroller. My nomination is not quite so warm and cozy: Weird Al Yankovic's The Night Santa Went Crazy.


Voting closes at 6 PM PST tomorrow.

Gonna have to go with One more sleep till Christmas and Oh come oh come Emmanuel.

Really WANTED to rep Weird Al but I'm just a sucker for Latin.

Noel and Veni Veni.

The former we did for our choir special last Christmas. It was a lot of fun. I get to hear a lot of contemporary and classic Christmas songs that I normally wouldn't have ever gotten to hear otherwise, so I love to see the selection each year that our music minister comes up with.

As for Veni Veni, well, I love Gregorian chant stuff. This might be my favorite Christmas song of all time. I should lobby for us to try to pull this off next year.

Christmas cards go out to One More Sleep and Veni Veni.

Torzelbaum's pick comes tap tap tappin' on your windowpane for votes. Suzy Snowflake is from a classic Chicago area kid's show. However, hoping to sneak some coal into Torzelbaum's Stockingdome is ViolentVixen and her pick, Evergreen from early 2000s nerdcore rapper MC Chris.




Speaking of popular stylings from the previous decade, Evil Dead Junkie brings us a song from one of the best of the group of whispy-voiced male singers from that period, Sufjan Stevens and his peaceful song Sister Winter. Meanwhile SpoonyBardOL brings us a traditional carol from the North Pole (well, Newfoundland but in the ballpark). It's The Mummer's Song and it's like sitting near a cozy fire with your extended family (if you like your extended family).


Voting closes at 7 PM PST tomorrow.
