Now that Christmas has passed, let’s get serious. Many folks, including myself, struggle to afford buying gifts for even our most cherished loved ones. This is the rock anthem for those in this situation.
Wait a minute… I’m not sure if this song is a Halloween song or a Christmas song. Whatever; on the pile it goes! Be sure to barricade your windows and doors because “Zombies Invade Christmas” is today’s song! Hit the link for the download!
As if you didn’t see this coming, we’ve got a theme week! Starting off this holiday extravaganza is a bad ass rock instrumental of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” by Copperhead. If you liked the Trans Siberia Orchestra’s version of “Carol of Bells”, you’ll like this.
The secondary theme for this week is that all of the music will be coming from CCMixter.org. Like this track.
You may not have known the name, but you’ve heard this song before. If you’re a fan of Animaniacs, it was the theme song of Slappy the Squirrel. This version was released as part of a large compilation of piano favorites by OnClassical. An independent Italian label, OnClassical is known for its long history with the Creative Commons and the high quality of its classical library.
I was starting to feel bad due to the underrepresentation of metal on SotC, but then I ran into this song and I KNEW WHAT I MUST DO. Enter Russian melodic metal group Alexandria and their track “Flock of Birds”. I’m totally digging this song. You can grab it on Jamendo.
In this special episode, we interview Sam Brown (who you might remember from a couple of weeks ago) and talk about his music, his beginnings, and we hear an unplugged version of his new song “Silhouette of Santa” as well as another of his songs, “Miss Understanding”.
