I'm really not the biggest fan of Christmas. The actual holiday I don't mind, but the buildup sucks. I'm not going to go into a rant about commercialism and exploitation, but lets just say sometimes it's a little too much. I mean, I know the birth of Santa Claus (that's what Christmas is about, right?) is important, but do we need to hear Christmas songs in mid-November? This also makes me dislike most Christmas music. Exceptions include this rocking version of Oh Come All Ye Faithful.

Talk about sacrilegious! It sure does rock though.

Also, leave it to Phil Spector to make fine art out of the same old bland Christmas songs.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - The Ronettes
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) - Darlene Love
Frosty the Snowman - The Ronettes

This album is fantastic. Bob B Soxx and The Blue Jeans, and the Crystals are also on it.

But we all know it's not really Christmas until you hear this...

All I want for Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey

I'm pretty sure that up until the vocals came in that was the exact same video as "we're not gonna take it". Actually, after the vocals came in to. Dee Snider really knows how to rock it.
