    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    i've never seen the movie, but judy garland singing "have yourself a merry little christmas" is the best. i tend to be more partial to songs in my range, lol, but also i always liked it because it wasn't 100% cheery. it was kind of about coming together and just wishing for the best for the future, but also remember to enjoy being wherever you are now.

    "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"
    I loved when it was used in JINGLE ALL THE WAY when everyones trying to get a lottery ball
    And it's been one of my faves every since.


    And of course, "All I Want For Christmas Is To Get Crunk".


    Tune to your local hip hop station sometime this season and I'm sure you'll hear it.

    Nutrocker by Emerson, Lake and Palmer is all kinds of ridiculous. A prog version of the Nutcracker theme.

    I claim authority on this subject, having worked in a toyshop at Christmas and heard every Christmas song on earth four hundred thousand times.

    And for Christ's sake, there is only one answer, and that's Fairy Tale of New York.



    Christmas, without that song, would not be Christmas for me. No Yuletide is complete without a bit of hopeless dirty loser love. Hard to find an uncensored version of it.

    It's the "I could have been someone! / Well so could anyone..." line that always gets me.


    RIP Kirsty MacColl.

    Either "Christmastime is Here" by Vince Guaraldi (A Charlie Brown Christmas) or "Welcome Christmas" from How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

    I think I said this last year, but that slade song is clearly the best.



    I actually like the John Lennon song more, but I always thought the war reference really detracted from it...

    Far more depressing than the subject matter of the song - a junkie and a drunk who've ruined each other's lives - was the awful popstar cover of it a while back, with all the offensive words swapped out.

    I hate the phrase "Political Correctness gone mad!", and that's not what it was, it was just a really cynical way of trying to polish the edge off a song that only works because of the damn edge in the first place.

    You, Ronan Keating, are no Shane McGowan.

    I love old school Christmas music, things I remember from when I was a tiny little kid(most of them are from before I was born, but so what) Rat Pack, Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole...

    I can never get into most contemporary Christmas music...

    although Sarah Brightman singing anything is gorgeous
    '99-'11...
