It’s that time of year again. Don’t know about you, but we have been hearing Christmas music for a couple weeks – think people were ready to get the holidays rollin’ early this year.

Yeah, we know it’s Halloween but let us skip ahead in the holiday timeline and present to you the first Christmas song of the season, courtesy of Mr. Rod Stewart. This is much scarier than anything else we could come up with for today!

Rod’s new album Merry Christmas Baby came out yesterday (Oct. 30), just in time to make everyone’s gift-giving lists this year. Lest you think this Christmas album is going to be different from all the others, we present to you “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”

Video du Jour: “I Believe in Father Christmas,” by Greg Lake

I was never a big Emerson, Lake & Palmer fan, but this little ditty by bassist Greg Lake is, in my opinion, one of the greatest Christmas songs of all time. Check out the song above and the interview below.

“Must Be Christmas,” Bob Dylan’s Having A Party!

Posted in News with tags , on November 17, 2009 by 30daysout

“Must Be Christmas” is the new Christmas polka from Bob Dylan, off his album Christmas From The Heart.  It kind of shows what happens when Bob hosts a wild party at his house and everyone gets a little drunk.  In the video, Dylan is dressed up like Tom Petty for Halloween … it’s still pretty damn funny.  And Bob has agreed to donate every penny he makes off the Christmas album to charities that will feed hungry families over the holidays. This is, incidentally, one of the greatest Christmas songs ever: listen closely, and as Bob is reeling off names of Santa’s reindeer he throws in some U.S. presidents too.
