Songs of the season
About this time each year, I personally have had just about enough of most classic Christmas songs. Any number of radio stations will play the same tired songs, with a few new remixes among the list. Others likely feel the same way, since as I began to look for "geekier" Christmas carols, it was easy enough to find them. Now CONduit in no way wishes to discriminate against other Seasonal Holidays such as Kwanzaa or Hanukkah, So please leave a geeky song about your favorite seasonal day in comments below.
The first one is a tribute to a song that seems to always be on the radio, Santa Baby. This one is still called Santa Baby, but has a Star Trek Theme.
Next is not so much an ode to a single song, but to a full album. Many of us remember the key tunes from the 8- bit era. Final Fantasy, and Mario are names from most of our childhoods and as such I share my favorite from the band 8 bit Jesus. Super Jingle Bros
While George Lucas may wish to forget the Star Wars Christmas special, it has brought us gems like, What do you get a Wookie for Christmas?
Not to forget another of the season's days. The Shlomones bring you The Rocky Hora Chanukah Song.
Jonathan Coulton has many great songs, such as "RE: Your Brains." This one is a seasonal favorite about the future.
The last one I chose was the Muppets singing in Carol of the Bells. Jim Henson's creations still bring a smile to my face and a chuckle at the gloomiest times.
