The Novelty of Christmas #MusicMovesMe

It's Monday and it's a special day for me for several reasons - among them, it's time for Music Moves Me!

Who are the #MusicMovesMe bloggers? We are bloggers (and perhaps also musical elves) who blog about music each Monday and if you have music to share with us, you are most welcome to join! (Music Posts Only on this music train, please!)   First, there is XmasDolly,   Her co-conductors are:  Callie of JAmerican Spice,  and ♥Stacy of Stacy Uncorked♥   Also, co-conducting  is  Cathy from Curious as a Cathy .  And finally, there's me. 

We all need a good laugh (or chuckle) from time to time, and I'm adding in a couple of my favorite Christmas rock tunes.

I was introduced to my first selection by Cathy at Curious As a Cathy, one of our co-elves and I have to admit that I enjoyed it so much, I played it several times.  I hope you enjoy it, too.

Straight No Chaser and The Twelve Days of Christmas (sort of.....)

The Waitresses and Christmas Wrapping, a favorite of mine from the 1980's.

Father Christmas - The Kinks.

From my childhood (1958, to be exact) Augie Rios and Donde Esta Santa Claus.

You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.  How can I resist?  He's as charming as an eel!  I wouldn't touch him with a 39 1/2 foot pole!  The Ultimate putdown song!  I LOVE the half hour cartoon (thank you, Dr. Seuss!)

And finally, since I gotta be offensive every once in a while (you can skip this one if you want, but I happen to be a fan of Bob Rivers) is Bob Rivers and Walking Round in Women's Underwear, from 1993.  (No, I decided against Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire).

So, that's a wrap - a Christmas wrap, and I hope I brought a smile to you today.  I have to admit to you, my reader, that this has been a difficult time for myself and my family, but I hope I bring a few minutes of joy to you.


  1. Alana,

    Thanks for the mention. Straight No Chaser does a fab job on 'The 12 Days of Christmas'. I'm glad you featured it this morning. It's funny, The Waitresses came across the radio a few days ago. DH and I talked about what a fun band name. It's not a neutral gender band, like The Servers. That's how the newer generation refer to waitresses and waiters. I'm still old-school when it comes to titles, though.

    Mary did an entire playlist of Bob Rivers' Twisted Christmas songs. You know girl, you can't offend me. I'm lovin' this twisted carol by Rivers!! In fact, I'm loving how normal folks are sharing these so-called offensive songs because of the stupid heads out there making a stink. Snowflake is the purrfect verbage to describe these individuals. lol Have a joyful Christmas, my friend!

    1. Okay, I'm back with a very special message...
      HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you, dear friend! XO

  2. Needless to say, all of these are new to me.

  3. I never heard of Bob Rivers or that song. (Not that I heard most of these. The Kinks? Father Christmas???)
    But, I admit I never knew the words to that Waitress song, either.

  4. Great songs. Love all of them. Thanks for sharing.

  5. A real eclectic mix! Hoping 2019 is a year filled with happiness and good health for you!

  6. I almost threw in "Walking Around In Women's Underwear," but thought I'd offend someone. Shows what I know. And I also had "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" by Tony The Tiger. A song like that can be played a thousand times and I never get tired of it. All these are great!

  7. Big smile here, Alana! Great selection! :)

  8. Love your choices. I love the funny ones, too. Last week my radio station did a live broadcast from a children’s hospital and had, as one of the guest stars, Dr. Elmo. You know him from his big hit, “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”

  9. Goody! HOw could I forget them! They are some of my faves and I haven't heard them in a long time! Yay for Christmas to introduce us again! Straight No Chaser and The Twelve Days of Christmas
    Thanks for the dance mi lady!
