On the subject of Christmas movies was reminded of The Grinch, a great film to watch over the festive season and one i will be watching. Plus Scrooged, the Bill Murray one.

We have both of those movies. Sunday night we watched Prancer featuring Sam Elliot and Chloris Leachman as well as the animated Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. This coming weekend we'll be watching my wife's favorite version of A Christmas Carol - the one in which Geroge C. Scott plays Scrooge. I'm always torn between who played Scrooge better, Scott or Alastair Sim.

Lennon and McCartney were pretty evenly matched, but Lennon wins the Christmas song. Think many people would disagree?

Well, considering they put that put "That Paul McCartney Christmas Song" as #22 on their list of things they hate about Christmas, I bet 22 Minutes would agree with you.

I think John's wins in the prettiness category, with an excellent melody and lyrics, and Paul's wins in the enjoyment category. Both are lasting; one is hated. Oh, well! I'll jam out to both!

Ha "that Paul McCartney Christmas song" my dad (jokingly) hates it. He says that "Paul's probably snickers everytime he cashes a royalty check from that song." and that it was "a dark time for Paul" and its "the low grade dog food of music" (anything he thinks is (jokingly) crappy he calls it low grade dog food.) but my sister and I LOOOOVEEE that song so my dad got it on his itunes so now he plays it out loud a ton. Now he claims it's grown on him and he likes it now, but my sister and I think he has secretly loved it all along.
But anyways, my christmas traditions.
My whole dads side of the family is italian so all us guidos get together and eat ALL HOMADE Italian food (ravioli, pizzelles, canolies, gnocchies) yum! On my moms side we go and visit my grandparents in south Carolina. And I'm really excited because its gonna be warm enough to go swimming! Yay!

I liked The Beatles before it was cool. (as in, I like all their music before 1965. I mean, I still like their later stuff but am very picky about what songs I like, while their older stuff I love it all. I am just not a fan of drugged out Beatles. Drugs scare me.)

I skip Pauls, even for a christmas song its lame, packed with every cheesy christmas gimmick possible especially those ding dong's. The b-side Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reggae is far superior, and lasts half the time.

That's actually fun. What's that instrument and who plays it?

Its a fiddle and the story goes that the player is the person who delivered it to the studio. Paul asks if the individual if he could the fiddle which he could. Nobody took his name and when Wonderful Christmastime was released in 1979 Paul launched an appeal for whoever the person was on the ITV show Tiswas.

There is no record in the book that gives this information of the fiddler being found, tho it may be elsewhere.

I love the Ronettes' version of "Frosty The Snowman". Her New York accent cracks me up...Frawsty the Snow me-an.

Ohh the vocals are good but the backing track is loud and painful and what are the drums doing? Thanks Mr Phil Spector for that.

I'm a fan of Spector's "Wall of sound". Those old girl groups are, in my opinion, fantastic to listen to.

Go Frosty! Not sure it's a New York accent though.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Yeah, The Ronettes were from NYC.

Lead singer Ronnie Bennett was actually married to Phil Spector for about 6 or 7 years. Ronnie Spector was a backup singer on Eddie Money's song "Take Me Home Tonight". Remember the line, "Just like Ronnie sang"?

And that, boys and girls, is Zig's "Useless Trivia Tidbit Of The Day".

Yesterday, I ordered a Christmas CD featuring Phil's girl groups. I'm not a fan of him personally, but love the sound he produced for these groups.

And not just the girl groups. Bob B Soxx is on that album, and Phil even has a cameo on Silent Night. Good record. Did you know Apple once reissued it?

I did not know that. The pictures I posted above were from Google. I rushed back to Amazon to see if the copy I ordered was on Apple, but it was released by Sony Legacy.

I heard Phil's cameo on the snippet samples provided by Amazon. I can't wait to get this. I also ordered a CD with X-mas songs performed by various Blues artists. It's gonna be another rockin' holiday season in the Zig household.
