    John Zorn - A Dreamers Christmas. Zorn doesn't play, but many of his friends are here - Trevor Dunn, Mike Patton, Cyro Baptista, Marc Ribot, Jamie Saft, Joey Baron, Kenny Wollesen

    I think the subtext is rapidly becoming text.

    Thanks so much for posting this. Strangely I've never heard this before. It's a great song. I've heard many times that Christmas is the time of the year when more suicides happen. It can be a very emotional time of year thinking back on loved ones gone and feeling lonely can really depress someone. My parents always made Christmas a magical wonderful time of year when we were kids and I miss them deeply at this time of the year, but my memories keep them alive in me. I knew a couple who had lost a son near Christmas and it hurt every year to them thinking about it. I remember the mother telling me how they would take the tree down the day after Christmas every year.

    That's the Philadelphia Flyers' mascot, Gritty. And he's awesome.

    For fans of Moon Safari - Simon Åkesson put together a youtube playlist of all his various Christmas related recordings:

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...BGwb2u1QIe1YA-

    Some ACappella, some with Accent, some choir, couple instrumentals. All really good. I downloaded the songs and also added this other one he missed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hxqgzdkc1k

    It makes a really nice 46 minute Christmas Disc.

    One of my wife's favorite seasonal albums is Yo-Yo Ma's Songs Of Joy And Peace.
    It is really nice, without being maudlin.

    Sorry, long suffering Isle fan here just happy not to be looking up at the rest of the league this year.

    Back on target, I never heard of 'Fairy Tale of New York' before. It's fantastic!
    Here is a link giving insights and interviews of the Pogues about the song. Its long but worth it.
