to me there are two types of Christmas songs
the ones not about Jesus and the ones about Jesus.
of the ones not about Jesus,
my favorite is “I Want” by Tenacious D and Sum 41
originally released in 2001 for a kroq christams album
but can more easily be found on the 2003 compilation “Christmas Calling“
which has forgettable tracks by Fiona Apple, Macy Gray, and Fuel, among others.
but this D tune – it’s just so funny – while cleverly commenting on the crass commercialism
and selfishness of this holy season.
wrapped in an iron maiden judas priest danger kitty case of metal love.
the homemade video by a fan of the song makes it even better.
