My Music Monday


No reason I can't have a holiday music for a My Music Monday.

I have little tolerance for xmas music. Most of it is drivel and even then it's poorly performed.  Dr. Spo recently commented that no one should ever cover the "Little Drummer Boy".

Normally, I'd agree with him, but perhaps he hasn't seen Pee-Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special - the holiday show to end all holiday shows.  I highly suggest you all pick it up on DVD.  Grace Jones does a "Drummer Boy" rendition that is done well and it probably doesn't hurt that it is only a 60 second version.  ("Ok Grace.....back in the box!")

I almost used it, but then opted for an early kd lang, doing "Jingle Bell Rock", also from Pee-Wee.  She's actually more lesbionic here than she'd be with Shadowland and the next few following albums.  Still she has fun with it, rhyming with Dirty Dog and Chicky Babe.  And it's always nice to hear Pteri cheering her on.  Even Randy is down with it, eh!

...it's just really scary that I'm sitting here listening to k.d.lang and browsing the blogs, and see this posting of yours...sigh

That outfit of hers. It's so 80s country. Ugh.

But I do love me some Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
