tony whats your favorite Christmas song?

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.
