John - Ronnie Spector will be at the Wolf Den tonight and you can't beat the price!

Ron,
Thanks for the links. I liked the first one more. I never was a big fan of the 'Singing Cowboy'. I was more of a 'King of the Cowboys' fan.

Dear friends,
There are so many great Christmas Rock and Roll songs. And, so many lame ones.
Please post your favorite, and also one you are sick of.
Here's my favorite. For all you John Fogarty, and CCR fans.
'Going Up To Bethlehem' by Bob Rivers.

Now for some Christmas songs I dislike.
'Father Christmas' Love the Kinks, hate this song.
'Wonderful Christmastime' Mitch, you are right about Paul in this case.

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays my friends.
John

John, I just found this on You Tube, didn't know it existed. I'd only heard the studio version which is much denser. Kate Bush - 'December Will Be Magic Again'

It's from "Raising Arizona" when the kidnappers get some balloons for the baby. They ask if the balloons come in funny shapes.

Donald,
Thanks. I'm not familiar with Kate Bush, though I've seen her name mentioned many times of these discussion groups. She sounds to me a little like the actress Carol Kane.

You Tube has whole albums of hers and she's made tons of videos. She's a bit of a control freak so she self produces her music and self directs her videos. My favorite album of hers is "Hounds of Love", anything on the album is worth listening to. "The Dreaming" is also excellent but a bit more experimental with the sound. Later albums are also worth hearing.

Mitch,
I love the Kinks. 'Father Christmas' is like 'Stairway to Heaven'.
It's been over played. The same with 'Lola'. My 2 most disliked Kinks songs. I never get tired of hearing 'You Really Got Me', or any other Kinks songs. Mitch, what about 'Wonderful Christmastime'?

Dear John:
OMG, John, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I KEEP ON SAYING, but no one agrees with me!!! when i first saw one of her songs/videos that someone posted here (i think it was the 'Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy!' one),
i thought she was in Monty Python, and was kidding! she is so over the top 'dramatic' in her movements, and her eyes are all rolling around, and looking surprised, and all that! also, her high pitched screech/singing, sounded like Carol Kane to me! did you ever see CK in 'Scrooged', where she plays the Ghost of Christmas Past, and she is dressed up like a fairy? she is on a wire (obviously), and 'flying' through the air, and saying 'oooooh....oohhh, and then she punches Bill Murray ('Scrooge') on his jaw! sooo funny!! that and 'sometimes, the truth is painful!' bit.....just too funny, and reminded me of Kate Bush, completely....i know many on this forum LOVE her, and that's fine....i myself am not a big fan....i actually preferred her in later years, without all the 'drama', and when she sang in a lower key.....that's just mo though....
thanks for the post, and now i don't feel like i am the only one here who thinks she is like Carol Kane!
love,
joyce :)

Please if you have a chance, please listen to Paris 1919 by John Cale. Not only is it one one the most beautiful albums ever made, it is in EH's top 100 greatest albums of the past 50 years...The beauty is overwhelming
