I was listening to some Christmas music that some girl was playing in my hall and thought to myself "You can't have Christmas music without Trans-Siberian Orchestra" (don't ask why) so I proceeded to shout that in their general direction, upon hearing that, they all laugh.

So it got me thinking, to you people of the pit, what is good Christmas music.

While you can't go wrong with the classics. My personal favorites are either anything by Trans-Siberian Orchestra, or anything by a guy named Gary Hoey

If you don't know who he is

Seriously check this guy out, his other Christmas covers are just epic.

So yeah, what are your favorites pit?

edit:
ohh forgot this one

Because the government would look like dicks if they suddenly started legalising substances when they've spent millions of pounds on lying to us about them.

Little do they know, they already look like dicks.

TSO is an exciting group.

My favorite pianist for Christmas music goes to Cyrus Chestnut's "A Charlie Brown Christmas". Listened to that record a lot growing up.

TSO is indeed amazing. My church puts on a theater/concert thing biennially which features a lot of TSO stuff, and it's a sick show.

Dude, you gotta have the original stuff by Vince Guaraldi. That man's a genius. I'm listening to it right now.

I see your point but I disagree. I absolutely love classical/jazz Christmas music.

i loathe christmas music. why? because i've been listening to (no thanks to my mother) the same sh*tty christmas compilations (including one by celine dion) every year for the past 18 years. i'm 22 but i'd consider the age of 4 is when children can distinguish between what sounds good or what sounds sh*t

Nice opinion, but no.

Part of the function of art is to express human experiences. The end of the year holidays are vital human experiences, and it's only logical that they are expressed through art. Art has no obligation to be persistent.

I listen to TSO all year long.


I like the Christmas EP that Weezer released last year.

I think my personal favorite is "Sing We Now of Christmas". Favorite rock Christmas song is probably Twisted Sister's "O Come All Ye Faithful".
Btw I live in Indiana, and Gary Hoey is definitely one of my favorite guitarists. I liked his version of "Mr. Grinch". I heard of him through Pandora a while back. Good stuff.
