So last year we were entertaining ourselves with a little askew holiday music from the likes of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Now it’s time to check out a jazzy little number popularized by superstars Spinal Tap entitled “Christmas With the Devil” and performed here by Judith Owen. Yes, that is Harry Shearer on upright bass.
And speaking of Mr. Waits, here’s what I feel is a worthy cover rendition of “Christmas Card…”
And speaking of covers, here’s a Tom Lehrer cover that I post here simply because…well, how can you say no to Tom Lehrer played on a church organ? Answer: you can’t. Update: They’ve taken the video private–bastards!
