James Covenant mashed up lines from The Avengers movies and got the superheroes and villains to sing Christmas Carols. That’s right, the likes of Iron Man and Thor sang Joy to the World and We Wish You a Merry Christmas and it is a smash.
So press play, so this video can bring joy to your world.
Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones reworked today’s biggest hits like Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass and Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda as Chanukah and Christmas Carols. My favorite one is Mistletoe which is their version of Frozen’s Let It Go. Actually, I loved them all and wish they would release them as an album. Don’t you want to add it to your collection of Christmas music?
Screen Team took this year’s biggest hits, reworked the lyrics and created the greatest Christmas Carol of the year and years to come! So come all ye faithful and listen to the holiday versions of Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, What Does the Fox Say by Ylvis, Bubble Butt by Major Lazer, Gas Pedal by Sage the Gemini, Started From the Bottom by Drake, Royals by Lorde, We Can’t Stop by Miley Cyrus, Get Lucky by Daft Punk ft. Pharrel Williams and Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke as one happy tune!
A year from now we will all be singing What Does an Elf Say?!!!
Megadeth was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and they announced that they released a Christmas album this holiday season. That’s right Thrashing Through the Snow: A Very Megadeth Christmas is available now and it is the must have album of the season. You have never heard songs like Frosty the Snowman done this way and you probably never will again.
So have a rockin’ holiday with Megadeth! Bet you never thought you would say that.
I can’t believe I never or forgot that I heard that Denis Leary has a song called Merry F*cking Christmas. Not only do I love it, but that is how I feel because I still have not done my X-Mas shopping and I am about the brave the retail world to do so. So as I struggle to find a parking space and wait over an hour in line, I will be humming and sometimes singing this song out loud. So if you are in the same boat as I am listen to this song and make sure to sing it aloud as you do your last minute shopping! I am sure others will join in with us as sing our Christmas Carole two days before this “joyous” holiday!
And when you get home, undress, down a full jar of Egg Nog, sit back and watch the full Denis Leary Christmas special. It will be the tension reliever that will sooth your sh!tty day!
Improv Everywhere, who is best known for bring Star Wars to the NYC subways, is doing a Tiffany and branching out into the malls in Jersey. They got together and a musical declaring that you are never too old to sit on Santa Claus’ lap. Personally I agree with them, but it also depends on how cute that man in red is. Well that and how Bad of a Santa he is!!!
Christmas is coming early this year because A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas is coming out this Friday. But not only are we getting a movie from them, we are getting a Yule Tide soundtrack that only they can sing. As you can see in this commercial that was released on Funny or Die, they got into the egg nog and sang songs that are not kid friendly in the least. Too bad they don’t sing their version of I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, can you imagine what they would do with it?
So light up a joint and buy A Very Harold & Kumar Yuletide because Christmas will never ever be the same!
Funny or Die’s Will Ferrell along with John C Reilly re-recorded the David Bowie and Bing Crosby holiday classic Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy that was taped for 1977’s Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas. I can’t believe I am saying this, but they really did a f*cking awesome job. The Anchorman really has a sweet singing voice.
Sh!t someone please get me the Grinch or Ebenezer Scrooge ASAP because I am in too good of a mood because of the holiday season and I am being really nice. Bah freakin’ Humbug!
A few weeks ago over 100 people surprised mall goers by singing Hallelujah at the Seaway Mall food court and thus began the season for holiday flash mobs. I love Christmas songs and I love flash mobs, so I hope we get more of this combination in the future. Seriously listening to them sing like that just got me in to the holiday spirit!
Tears for Fears’ Curt Smith is releasing his first original holiday song in his 30 year music career tomorrow and it is called This is Christmas. The background vocals features his two daughters Diva and Wilder, and a local school’s choir. The song doesn’t only have his family involved with it, but that is what it is about because here is how he described it, “an adult visiting his parents at Christmas and lamenting how he’s always made to feel like a child when he returns home. It culminates in his realization and acceptance that they’re family after all, and nothing will (or even should) change that.” Let’s be real we all know that no matter how old we get, when we go home we are like children all over again. Saying that everyone can relate to this future Christmas classic so download it at iTunes and Amazon starting tomorrow, or get an autograph copy via Curt Smith’s website.
And if listening to it on your computer or iPod isn’t enough, you will be able to hear it on December 15th on USA’s Psych. The show that Curt Smith made his acting debut on earlier in the year!
Lastly Smith will be playing several solo LA shows next year before touring with the Tears for Fears on the West Coast and South America. I know I am going to go see the man who sings my all time favorite song Mad World!!! And I mean the TFF version and not the others.
