I like the Sousa marches they play around the 4th of July. The Winter Solstice music can get old.

I listen to Pink Floyd's Money. Gets me in the mood to celebrate the holiday of excessive materialism that everyone celebrates while whinning to put the Christ back in Christmas.

Hard to be in a bad mood when you hear the hippotamus song! But aside from that I can only take it in short doses until very close to Christmas.

Holiday music always makes me think of this sequence from a Dick Van Dyke episode:

I like to hum Jingle Bells every where I go so that others can enjoy it.

I like Christmas music, but I refuse to listen to it until about Dec. 15th. The whole reason radio stations start with it Nov.1st. is to get us to buy, buy, buy. The commercialism of it makes me ill. Besides, it should be illegal to play it when there is no snow on the ground!

Only the songs about Jesus and the real meaning of Christmas.

Just Mariah Carey. She ruins everything she touches. First she destroyed "Without You", the Harry Nilsson classic. Yes I know Badfinger wrote it, but Harry did it best. Then "Oh Holy Night", my favorite Christmas song. She managed to squeeze 7 notes out of evry single word.

Does the Rock Chalk chant count as Holiday music? If it does count as holiday music, I never get tired of it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHioIl... One of the best pieces of Christmas music ever made. Timeless. TSO rocks. This is the "official" video so you'll have to live through an advertisement first. But it's worth the high quality.

I only like one Christmas song (Oh Holy Night), and I do not want to hear it until December 24. Otherwise, I want to throw a hammer at the TV every there is a commercial with The Nutcracker Ballet in the background.

I feel like driving nails through my eardrums whenever I walk into a store playing overproduced hack versions of Christmas music.

The dogs barking "Jingle Bells" fires me up this time of year.

I got Beiber fever with my new hero Emma Sullivan.

======================================

Where is Asked on Massachusetts Street?

Is it a store? If so, what kind of store is it?

Is it a special booth where they ask all the questions they ask on Massachusetts street?

Is the booth like the one in that Ford commercial where a mirrored box opens up and a reporter jumps out and asks startled passersby a question?

I love holiday music, I find it complex, simple, lovely, trashy, spiritual, sweet, cheerful, sad, historic, modern. Everyone shines in their holiday songs.
