Ten Wicked Cool Christmas Songs...

It's Christmas time, and there's plenty need to be afraid.
So if your petrified of hearing Mariah Carey one more fucking time, then you don't need to give up on christmas songs altogether. Here is your present from me, ten christmas songs that are freakin cool.

10. Joe Pesci - If It Doesn't Snow for Christmas.
Pesci, of Goodfellas (and Home Alone) fame, one hell of a funny song.

9. Leadbelly - Christmas is a-Comin.
Blues legend Leadbelly, just a great singer. On his childrens album - one of the few ex-cons to have realeased a christmas album.  Recorded around 1941.

8. Bruce Springsteen - Santa Claus is Comin' to Town
Just because he is the Boss. But seriously, wtf is Little Steven wearing on his head. Hilarious.

7. Corey Taylor - XM@$
Here's mr slipknot himself. Only heard this today on radio. I feel this way sometimes. Especially when I was in Manchester town centre today on the saturday before christmas - not a wise move. Needless to say i didn't last long. 'Fa la la la la go fuck yourself'. Possibly my favourite christmas line of all time.

6. Clarence Carter - Back door Santa
Ah, nothing like a good christmas innuendo.

5. Keith Richards - Run Run Rudolph
This is what christmas songs should be, blues mannn.

4. The Ramones - Merry Christmas (I don't want to fight)
Proof that a cool christmas song doesn't have to rebel.

3. The Brian Setzer Orchestra - Santa Drives a Hot Rod
Incredibly cool man.

and press the blue play button in the window thing - it'll be worth it.

2. Boss Martians - 3 Ghosts.
Ok the Muppets Christmas Carol was pretty cool, but hey, bet you never thought you'd hear Charles Dickens' masterpeice condensed into two minutes of rock and roll.
(Could only get a link to theire myspace)

1. Bob Dylan - Must Be Santa
Big surprise, I put Dylan top. But this song is cool because it's so out of character. And he wears some sinister wig in the video. Plain wierd, and for some strange reason which I can't explain - awesome.
Its christmas, just a little bit disturbing, And i like that.

So there we are. Now you don't have to sit through incessant ramblings of all that other shite.
Peace out.
