Default Christmas Songs

What is your favorite? Mine is Burl Ives - "Holly Jolly Christmas"

Now the real reason I started this thread. In the song - "Tis The Season" Fa la la la la ....
It has a line that says, and I quote, "Don we now, our gay apparel". Okay, what in the name of moses is "gay" apparel? Leather chaps and vests? That's not Christmasy!

BJ, can you help me out with this? What does it mean?

Default Re: Christmas Songs

In the olden days, gay meant happy or festive.

Perhaps that song should be re-recorded to use a word of modern content equivolence?

But then again, have you looked at many of those Christmas sweaters?? They're pretty gay...



BTW, my current favorite this season is the Hippopotomous song.

You have it all wrong but it is not your fault, these are commonly misquoted lyrics.

The real lyrics are "Do me now, in my gay apparel".

Although you are correct in thinking BJ can help you understand this.

Tuvan throat singers version of "Jingle Bells".....If you are not a big fan of throat singing you can skip the first three minutes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQuSo0VL8q4


"Linus and Lucy" (AKA "Charlie Brown Christmas")

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsDqloUEliQ

And finally just some total bad *** classical picking from the master. Again you can skip the first minute or so of talking if you want to get straight to the song

In all seriousness, my fav is probably "O holy night," with this song's rendition coming in second:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTOGM5L5abg

I geeve about the Engrish, its still a beautiful rendition.

"holy infant so tender and mild" is rather disturbing taken out of context also.

See, I always thought that "round young virgin" was simply referring a fat 4th grader in Kentucky.
