Sportsfan - It's Not That Cool To Not Like Christmas album
Let’s face it: the vast majority of Christmas music is supremely irritating and overplayed. Few things are less cheer-inducing than having It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year bellowed in your ear in every public space from November 1 to New Year’s Day. By the time the holiday arrives, Christmas tunes feel like little more than the sonic cattle prod our corporate overlords use to goad us into consumption. Serious music fans suffer more during the holidays, though. Not only do we have to endure carols ad nauseum, we must watch musicians we idolize cash in by covering them.
What’s it like being a woman?: Now that I have short hair, I miss . .And when my hair is long again, I will want it short. And on and on and on forever until I fucking die. It’s like that. English (UK) · Русский · Українська · Suomi · Español. It's like Christmas, New Years Eve and my birthday, all bundled up and delivered by surprise! The kids are going to grandma's house.
It's almost like Christmas was invented for Karen Carpenter to sing about; her milk-bath vocals fit "Sleigh Ride" and "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" like a reindeer sweater. Richard's soft-rock production and gloppy orchestral arrangements aren't bad either – a kind of warmed-over, version of Forties merriment. Cash recorded Christmas albums throughout his career. In 2003, the year he died, Sony Legacy released this excellent collection of songs cut between 1962 and 1980. He adds depth to selections like "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," giving them a rough honesty that adds to their redemptive power. The best cuts are heart-rending, plainspoken song-poems that offer lessons on love, community and charity.
Gwen Stefani’s You Make It Feel Like Christmas justifies its title only because it’s both cloyingly sentimental and charmlessly tacky. The fun in Jingle Bells is in singing it, not listening, and no amount of faux rat-pack swing is going to make it any more appealing. Their album Christmas Christmas swings for the same sonic space as Hanson but does it with far more unpolished fun. You can feel the proper, boozy cheer as the band jam the faders up and rock out unashamedly on Chuck Berry’s Run Run Rudolph and the Ramones’s Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight).
And it's been pumped up to a certain extent to compete with Christmas, but it's still lame in terms of just being this time of tribal community and togetherness, you know? To me, as a Jew, I'm saying, Hanukkah doesn't work like that. I tend not to think of it that way. I'm not a vinyl-only guy, by any means. I'm not a snob about vinyl and not gonna listen to digital records. But I go onto YouTube 'cause it's free and it works. But it comes from an album that Mavis made with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco called One True Vine. In any case, when I heard it, I was knocked out by it.
Then it is day and in a way The pattern's much the same In-spots, a matinee Everyday Blend with the crowd, blend with the loud Hypnotic ebb and flow Until the day goes slowly Into night. See the same old crowd At bistros and old haunts 'Til the lights grow dim The not-so-subtle hint to be gone. Thank God it's not Christmas When there is only you And nothing else to do Thank God it's not Christmas Where there's just you to do The rest is closed to public view. Caroling kids, caroling kids A trifle premature In tones so rich and.
It’s two years since five-piece Blossoms saw their debut, self-titled album top the charts and get a Mercury Music Prize nomination. Their forthcoming album Cool Like You, marks their return. On meeting Ogden, 24, and drummer Joe Donovan, 25, I find they are as down-to-earth as when I met them a couple of years ago, even if they look a bit smarter (Ogden with shorter hair and in cream trousers and Donovan wearing a checked jacket). The rest of the band - bass player Charlie Salt, guitarist Josh Dewhurst and keyboard player Myles Kellock - are to join the pair later for a meeting at Radio 1 and then on Saturday to perform a session on Dermot O’Leary’s Radio 2 show. Both Ogden and Donovan are enjoying being back on promotional duties. They say Cool Like Me was made without any difficult second album syndrome and they can’t wait to perform new tracks. It’s different but it’s Blossoms, says Ogden.
It's where your interests connect you with your people. i just wish we could have seen more of a buildup to her madness and gave her character more justice than just falling back on some weak hints and the ~crazy gene~ trope. it’s lazy writing and im calling it as i see it lmao.
