IT'S CHRISTMAS! Brilliant video: Handel's Hallelujah Chorus, and Fay McKay's 12 Days of Christmas
Christmas music... I ranted about it last year, so I don't have much more to add this year, but it's not Christmas to me until I've heard Handel's Messiah. The above is just a brilliant revisioning of the chorus.
And below: the great Christmas song I discovered this year. The Twelve Daze of Christmas, by Fay McKay: in my search for more Christmas music, this is seriously the only "novelty Christmas song" I liked. Sorry, Bob Rivers, but reading the tracklist of your songs pretty much lays out every joke you made on the album. (This is also the problem with The Onion: the articles are just excuses for their admittedly brilliant headlines)
