Hello fellow lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year. It’s December 2nd and you know what that means, tis the season (again or like every other year), the 25 days of Christmas on ABC Family has begun with Elf kicking off the season followed a non-cocaine dealing Tim Allen in The Santa Clause. It’s now also time for white girls around the world to switch from pumpkin spice lattes to peppermint mochas (gotta love Starbucks informing the masses of the season). But hey, all things aside I’ve got some great Christmas themed videos for your viewing pleasure.
If you’ve never witnessed a Trans-Siberian Orchestra coordinated show I must believe one of two things you’ve lived under a rock with no access to the internet or you’re the cold hearted Grinch and you hate Christmas (I guess there might be other reasons, but these are the only logical ones to me). Just give this bad ass video a whirl and be amazed by the power of lights combined with sounds (doesn’t that make it sound easy. The song for the video is “Sarajevo (Carol of the Bells” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra and this home’s been featured twice on Good Morning America.
Here’s a live version of the same song. Production level infinity. Be amazed.
Death Cab For Cutie takes on Christmas in typical fashion, Ben Gibbard’s voice providing a heart wrenching tone to “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”. A sadder sound than what most people would think when Christmas comes to mind, but then again Christmas might not be a happy time for everyone.
A pretty rocking Christmas tune from the Ramones, with some even better late 80’s early 90’s video footage.
I don’t know how or why I stumbled upon this slash I have no idea how I haven’t before being the big nerd I am. This could quite possibly be the funniest video I’ve seen in a while. I guess maybe it’s because I almost broke down crying thinking about the amount SEO’s I write on a regular basis or the fact I knew exactly what they were talking about the whole time, it’s a toss-up which ones sadder. Regardless, for anyone who’s a computer geek or works in the computing industry I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of this.
I couldn’t help myself. These could be two of the possibly top Christmas songs of all time. Plus, I would marry both of these women’s voices if that were even a thing. How can you not get the feels after watching Faith Hill at the end of the Grinch (Maybe it’s a sign your hearts three sizes too small). And c’mon Mariah Carey, all I want for Christmas is you let’s be honest.
Coming next week on Tuesday’s Top Video’s some dark, twisted, and comical Christmas tunes from some well-known artists.
