27 nov 2010, 16:53 av bennyhertleinFirst sunday in advent is coming near, so I thought it was time to do my yearly "Christmas"-Playlist in iTunes. That's why I thought about my favourite christmas and winter music, which I want to share now.
Mariah Carey - Merry Christmas:
One of the best christmas albums ever recorded, including many classics as well as famous "All I Want for Christmas Is You". Most other records by female singers like Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and so on have nothing on it. If you want to take a listen, don't confuse it with Mariah's second holiday record Merry Christmas II You - that one's pretty bad.
The Supremes - Merry Christmas:
Very catchy and festive at the same time. Everyone who loves the Supremes will love this record.
A Fine Frenzy - Oh Blue Christmas:
Mixing the style of A Fine Frenzy with the christmas spirit just works out very well. This record is outstanding because it doesn't have the classcis on it one hears over and over every year but new, self-written songs.

So how's the new year diet going?
It's St Valentine's Day this weekend, I imagine we will all take a day off from this particular resolution and either celebrate or commiserate. Candy is dandy, as they say. (They also say liquor is quicker, but that's another matter)*.
I Want Candy was written by Bert Berns and The Strangeloves - Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein and Richard Gottehrer - in 1965, although if we dig a little deeper, we find the original music was by the great master Bo Diddley himself.
11 dec 2009, 19:33 av tarboxHeh. I'm so thrilled about this whole Xmas season thing. Started the Xmas music virtual excavation and metaphorical blowing-off-of-dust last night. Gotten quite a mess of it built up over the years. Songs by dozens and dozens of artists across all kinds of genres - like Eek-a-Mouse, Sonics, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Asylum Street Spankers (and of course Thurl Ravenscroft), James Brown, DBS, Sammy Davis, Jr., Rosemary Clooney, Bad Brains, Jackson 5.....
Hee! Novelty songs..... either they sound brand new (I listen to them so seldom) or they sound familiar and welcome reminders of Xmases past.... neat!
3 mar 2009, 11:26 av mandracoI'm doing this from something I found at Bri_82's journal.
'First, make a list of your overall top-20 artists. Then, for each of these artists, add the 8 most similar artists to your list. Delete any duplicates, add up the number of entries on your list and this will give you some idea of how eclectic your listening habits are. A score of 9 represents an extremely unvaried musical taste while a 160 represents an extremely varied one.'
1. Flight of the Conchords
4. Corbin Bleu
5. Aly & AJ
6. Hannah Montana
7. Hilary Duff
