Below are some classic Christmas songs, and I’m going to write as many lyrics as I know for each one. Shane is going to LOVE this post.
Green means I’m confident.
Red means I’m not so sure.
Let’s get started!
I’m dreaming of a White Christmas. I’m dreaming of snow.
Can’t even guess the rest of the lyrics.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
You know Cometand Jonah and Prancer and Vixen. Donner, and Jolly, and Snowboard, and Blitzen.But do you recall, the most famous reindeer of all?
I actually know the rest of the lyrics and am not going to type them out because it’s boring and long. Does anyone know all their names?
Frosty the Snowman
Frosty the Snowman,had a very shiny nose. And if you ever saw it. You would even saw it glows.
For the life of me I can’t think of the second line. I keep going to Rudolph but I know that’s not right.
Let it Snow
Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we’ve no place to go. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Oh la-lano signs of it stopping, and the fire is surely popping,and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
I actually like this song.
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse opened sleigh. HEY!
That’s the whole song, right?
Joy to the World
Joy to the world, the teacher’s dead. We bar-be-que’d his head! Then we took his body and flushed it down the potty and round and round it goes! And round and round it goes!
I remember the latter part from elementary school.
Deck the Halls
Deck the halls withcrowds of jollyfa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la. *second line*. Kill your neighbor and your sister fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!
Again that latter part is from elementary school.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Have yourselfa good time…? Have yourself a merry little Christmasssss Niiiiiiiiight.
What an original tune. Like c’mon, this song fucking sucks.
Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree have a happy holiday.Jingling and Singling, you and me, have a happy holiday!What a bright time, it’s the right time,to rock the holidays. Jingle bell time, it’s a swell time, to go riding in a one horsed sleight. Giddy up Giddy up, kick up some mud. Don’t forget your coat.
I know most of this from Mean Girls.
‘Twas the night before Christmas
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, there wasn’t a peep,not even a mouse.
I’m not sure if this is a song or a poem or what. I’m also pretty positive there’s more to it than just this.
Silent Night. Holy Night.All is well. All is right. Peace may come. Peace may go. Weather forecast. Is calling for snow.
I didn’t know this was a Christmas song until I looked up “Christmas songs” just now. I remember this from the Simpsons when Bart / Lisa sing as Homer breaks into the house.
This is a long post and the story below happened earlier tonight.
What happened from my perspective
It was about 6:30PM and 25 degrees outside. I was running on Falls Bridge and could see a car was parked in the middle of the one lane with no one was in it. There were two women along the other side of the bridge looking into the water and yelling.
I ran over to see what was happening while the women just kept yelling “Keep swimming! Keep swimming!” I looked in the water and couldn’t see much because it was dark, but eventually spotted someone in the water. You could faintly hear her yelling “I can’t swim!“.
I ran around the bridge where another runner was looking in. I asked him what happened and he said she jumped in herself. I then asked in sort of a panic, “Well, should someone like, jump in and save her?!” to which he said “I don’t know, we may not want to lose 2 people” which was sort of a morbid answer and basically framed the situation as life or death. He also mentioned that someone had called 911.
I hopped over wall and started heading down next to the river to see if going in to get her was realistic. Another guy was down there more or less doing the same thing. She kept repeating the same three things:
“I’m so cold”
“I can’t swim”
It not as if you can walk in and out of the river, there’s basically a 5 foot ledge that you have to get up. I got as close as I could and was just yelling at her to come towards me while contemplating if jumping in would make the situation better or worse. She looked to be roughly 18 years old.
30 seconds later I heard sirens and soon after a rescue worker with a flashlight came down to meet me. The water was shallow enough for her to stand but she wasn’t making it up the ledge by herself and we couldn’t really get to her.
A few more rescue workers showed up over the next few minutes and eventually lowered a ladder down for her to climb up which she barely managed to do. Then they took her to the ambulance right away.
There were now probably 10 rescue people down there, a fire truck, an ambulance, a few cop cars, and a dozen on-lookers. It was a very human moment climbing back to the path and honestly I began tearing up.
I talked to the police briefly then ran home.
Reflecting on what happened
For the ~3 minutes where the rescue workers weren’t in sight, the question was simple: Do I jump in or not? I’m just going to write exactly what I felt.
I was running through all the scenarios of me jumping in and the possible outcomes. She was already making her way over to me and could stand, though was still barely moving. Most importantly, if I jumped in, I wouldn’t have been able to get her out. I would’ve had a ~120 pound iceberg that I’d be unable to lift out.
Because of that, jumping felt self-righteous. In the moment, it felt like I would’ve been doing it just so I could tell people I did it, when it likely would’ve complicated things.
The only benefit to jumping in would’ve been IF she went fully under water, then I could’ve helped her, but fortunately that didn’t happen. And if she did go under, I could’ve jumped in then.
Although jumping in seemed stupid, staying out felt completely helpless. I felt guilty. This girl is literally dying, looking at me yelling “help me“, while I’m sitting there watching her and a dozen other people are just staring in awe. All I could do was keep talking to her.
The final outcome was good, she was saved. But it’s situations like this where, if things go wrong, you look back and wonder “what could I have done differently?”.
Say she did go under and ultimately died. I’d look back wondering why the fuck I didn’t just jump in, get a little cold, a little wet, and a little bloody to save her life.
The touching story of a rejected little lump of coal and the truth behind the monster that is Santa Claus. This is the greatest Christmas song of all time. Hands down. Bar none. Listen immediately if you’ve never heard it before.
Somewhere in downtown San Francisco and in the heart of Radnor, Slade and Drew are cringing at this.
None. I change literally every other Christmas song instantly if it comes on the radio. Christmas songs suck.
This is a ~top 5 comedy. Has any actor ever fit a character as well as Billy Bob Thornton fits Willie Stokes?
If you haven’t seen the movie and are curious, the scene below will quickly tell you if you’ll like it or not. If you don’t laugh at that, not only will you not like the movie, but you’re also on my list of people whose movie opinion I don’t value at all.
None. According to this list of 100 best Christmas Movies the only other Christmas movies I’ve seen on the list are Home Alone which was 20 years ago and Just Friends, and those don’t make the cut. Christmas movies suck.
Stairway and Kashmir were too obvious. This is a great lesser-known Zeppelin song. Realistically, you could come up with just a top 10 Led Zeppelin songs over 8 minutes if you went through all of their stuff.
Because of Guitar Hero, I’ve probably heard this song more than any other on the list which isn’t a good thing. Nothing was worse than getting to the solo, missing right away, then having to restart. But that guitar solo is just too classic to NOT have this on the list.
If you don’t like Pink Floyd you especially won’t like this song, but you should. It’s all their qualities summed up into one 26 minute ode to their former band mate Syd Barrett who went bonkers from doing too many drugs.
I don’t give a shit that this song 7:58 and not 8 minutes. The guitar / drum combo, along with Ozzy saying “Satan laughing spreads his wings” makes the hair on my you know what stand up EVERYTIME. A hard rock rager.
Go ahead, tell me it’s laughable to rank this song number one. Tell me it’s some cuck song that suburban white emo teenagers love because they think it’s so deep and emotional when really it’s just a steaming pile of musical shit. I don’t care. I could listen to this song every day for the rest of my life and die happy.
