Happy Merry Christmas Funtime

For a light-hearted approach to Christmas music, we have to return to Grandaddy, with their Christmas classic, Alan Parsons in a Winter Wonderland. Here’s an excerpt:

in the meadow we can build a snowman
and pretend that he is Alan Parsons
he’ll say have you listened to my new band
we’ll say no but we really like that one song
it goes ‘time keeps flowing like a river’

This song was part of a 2000 Christmas compilation released only in the UK: It’s a Cool Cool Christmas.
Man I love these guys.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, etc. to everybody!

It’s Grandaddy Time

Want to put a little charge in your day? Listen to Grandaddy‘s version of Best of All Possible Worlds. It was written by Kris Kristofferson and released on his debut album back in 1970.

If you haven’t heard of Grandaddy, I’ll be posting some more of their stuff soon. “Solar powered space pop” is how their All Music bio starts. This song is a pretty straight ahead country rocker that’ll put a smile and sneer on your face. Enjoy. Oh and of course, see Grandaddy’s site here.
