Tom Waits Friday: Christmas Special

If all Christmas music began with lyrics like --
Hey Charley I'm pregnant
Living on 9th Street
Right above a dirty bookstore
Off Euclid Avenue...
-- Christmas music would be a thousand times more awesome.

& don't forget the Pogues':

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Ooo! Ooooo! I got one, too!

The Hives + Cyndi Lauper: "A Christmas Duel"

It sounds like something straight out of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." You'll love it.

Happy Christmas, Driftglass! Much love to the Cornfield Resistance!
