In the non-traditional spirit of things


I was curious to see if this song was on youtube, and, as it turns out, someone did happen to upload it, noting that they had converted from an old VHS tape (I'm really wanting to start doing that with some old tapes). It looks like it was recorded from The Tonight Show.

This time of year is usually flooded with traditional holiday songs, so I thought it might be nice to share some of the more non-traditional ones I enjoy, or at least traditional ones that are performed in a non-traditional sort of way. If you have some favorites, please join in and I'll see if I can start listening/posting some of the ones I enjoy.

I've just got to get more into the spirit of things since I've got many batches of marshmallows I need to make this coming week, so maybe starting a holiday thread could help me out.

Someone shared this one with me ... Jingle Bells on the bass guitar.

Just in case no one's paying much attention to this thread ...

"Christmas Balls"


I'm not sure about some of the photos on that video, but it's an old funny song from 1936.

One of my favorites that I didn't discover until many years after it was recorded ...
"Christmas Everyday"

(I hadn't realized this song came out the year I was born.)

Not necessarily non traditional as a fun-type Christmas song. But a bit odd piece of music for Gene Autry.

I put Fairy tale of New York on the music thread but that is probably my favourite.

In keeping with the new spirit of America,
