People who hate Christmas music just don't get it. Yeah, it's kitschy and starts playing in department stores in October blah-di-blah, but people who expend the energy hating it are usually just young and uptight -- overgrown spoiled children all.
On the other side, you've got people who love Christmas music so much, they refuse to respect the seasonal boundaries. Like perennial misfit toys with sugar-stuck gears, they plug into the peppermint-bark sweetness of Christmas all year long. And we have one such fellow right here in KC: the merry Tone King, whose blog, Twelve Months of Christmas, collects holiday songs for enjoyment all year round.
Hankering for the music-box jingle and earnest choirboy vocals of Voices of the Little Flower singing "Christmas All Year 'Round?" The Tone King is your man. Looking for Blondie's rappity-rap-licious "Yuletide Throwdown?" Look no further, ho ho ho. The Tone King's got '60s garage jams to fill your stocking and Merv Griffin ballads to dispel the nippings of Jack Frost. Yes, friends, the Tone King is your one-stop shop for obscure delights of the MP3 kind, many of them seasoned with the scratchings of warm vinyl. Dally not; come all ye to the twelvemonth feast!
Joyful holiday ups to A to Z for directing us to the King. Visit her blog by clicking on the Misfit Toys.
