Christmas songs I don’t hate: Harvey Danger- Sometimes You Have to Work on Christmas (Sometimes)

Harvey Danger is one of those one-hit wonders who actually recorded a lot of great music outside of their (great but overplayed) hit. But even as one of their biggest defenders over the last decade, I had no idea that they had anything remotely Christmas-y under their belt.

Video: Morgan and Destiny’s Eleventeenth Date

Morgan and Destiny’s Eleventeenth Date: The Zeppelin Zoo This Joseph Gordon Levitt short is either incredible or impossibly overwrought. Given that it’s JGL, I’m leaning towards the former, because god damn is that man charming. Also, because it’s got some nice words in it. Reminds me of something between Unwinese and Nadsat.

Song of the Day: Final Fantasy – Nun or a Bawd

Final Fantasy · Nun or a Bawd And why not make it a two-fer? I haven’t been posting too many of these. Favourite track from Final Fantasy’s Plays to Please, a tribute to Toronto’s Deep Dark United. No comments on the sentiment contained within. (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)

Song of the Day: Audience – Nancy

Audience – Nancy From 1971’s The House on the Hill. Was pretty pleased to find this at CJSW’s all-you-can-carry record sale, I have to admit. There’s maybe a bit too much Zeppelin in their sound, but that’s not exactly unforgivable. (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)

Song of the Day: The Wet Secrets – Hep A Birthday

The Wet Secrets – Hep A Birthday This is to what I was referring just then. Don’t know why this video has the longest silence, though. (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)

Song of the Day: Quincy Jones – Summer in the City

Summer in the City – Quincy Jones Seems appropriate, no? (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)

Song of the Day: Paul McCartney – Monkberry Moon Delight

Song of the Day: Paul McCartney – Monkberry Moon Delight Catch up, cats and kittens — one of the sillier songs on Ram (which is already saying a lot), and maybe the most needlessly shouty thing he’s ever written. In other words, totally delightful. (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)

Song of the Day: New Build – Miranda

New Build – Miranda, Be My Guide Pop music, guys. It’s pretty wonderful. (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)

Song of the Day: Cornelius – Gum

Song of the Day: Cornelius – Gum Not sure exactly how it is that this one comes together. But it does. And it’s great. (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)

Song of the Day: The Vaselines – Monsterpussy

The Vaselines – Monsterpussy A ridiculous song, just because. Your weekend assignment: Use “I’m going to skin it and wear it as a hat” in casual conversation. (Source: http://www.youtube.com/)
