Holiday Stuff:

The Sesame Street gang helps get in the cookie eatin' mood

Cookie Momster, Grover & Harry Monster - Blue Christmas

Maybe you caught the animated studio mix from his holiday special on Comedy Central, well here's a recording from a live date of the same tune.

Denis Leary - Merry F%@#ing Xmas

From Las Vegas, a band that turns a kiddie classic into a hardcore x-mess carol ...

Lay To Rest - Jingle Bells ( Batman Smells)

why did I put Billy Corgan after that? well, it's because I can... not because I like it...please understand, and forgive me's the holiday season after all...

Billy Corgan - Christmas Time

and here's the TV family that always looked like they were having more fun than anyone else...good thing we have tell all books, reality television and documentaries to straighten out that myth...

David Cassisy & Partridge Family - My Christmas Card to You

here's some more "secular" tunes for ya to enjoy:

From his "Water from The Wells of Home" collaborative album, recorded in the late 80's for Mercury whom he was feuding with, shortly before he was unceremoniously dropped. The writer of the track is the great Appalachian songsmith Tom T. Hall , who joins Johnny on this number.

Water from the Wells of Home (Bonus Tracks)

Johnny Cash - Last of The Drifters

raised in D.C, where Go-Go rules the streets, Amerie uses the local beat to her advantage on this tune

Amerie - 1 Thing

This song uses a sample from a 1965 Jagger/Richards composistion called "The Last Time" from an old Andrew Loog Oldham Orchestra recording that unfortunately for the Verve was controlled by Allen B. Klein ( aka ABKCO). The Verve recorded the track before they negotiated the sample, and the price for getting their first real hit on the charts was an exhorbitant fee to Klein that the writers themselves eventually apologized for. Upset that he lost the royalties, Verve singer Richard Ashcroft was quoted saying Bittersweet Symphony was "The best song Jagger and Richards have written in 20 years." Here's the song without "Where Are They Now" file entry Richard Ashcroft bleating over the top...

Verve - Bittersweet Symphony ( inst )
