Though the Blizzard Wind Doth Blow...

This year's Christmas playlist is up! ON TIME. HOLY CRAP. I think I've really captured the essence of the holiday, here. The cheer and the drunken hilarity... and the loathing, the despair, and the death. It's ... maybe a little schizo, in places, but it's better than some things I've done. Commentary, where necessary, is below.

1. The Crüxshadows - Winterborn (Subway to Sally Mix) (6:13)
I swear to god, this is totally incidental. No relation. Srsly. It's been on there since like October, when I started working on this.
2. Eluveitie - Slania's Song (clipped) (5:28)

I don't usually listen to this one. Female singer, and all. But, it eases the transition between Winterborn and White Rainbow.
3. Coil - A White Rainbow (clipped) (6:12)

Moon's milk spills from my unquiet skull... Again, this has been here since October. Prophetic, maybe, but absolutely unintentional.
4. 桜庭統 - Ice Fog Flow (3:03)
5. Vast - Winter In My Heart (3:36)
6. Alice - alcz3010 (0:01)

"I fear nothing." American McGee's Alice. My favourite source for splices.
7. Blutengel - Soul Of Ice (clipped) (4:46)
8. Trans Siberian Orchestra - Siberian Sleigh Ride (clipped) (2:55)
9. LaTour - Cold (5:30)

It goes there. Shut up.
10. Heaven 17 - Holiday (3:48)
11. Alice - alcz2020b (0:01)

"I'm not on holiday!" American McGee's Alice.
12. Alice - alcz2021 (0:01)
"Lucky me..." American McGee's Alice.

13. Dean Martin - Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! (1:55)
14. Tom Waits & Peter Murphy - Christmas Sucks (2:56)

This holiday cheer is a pain in the nuts... Yeah, this kinda sums up my thoughts on the whole thing.
15. Ella Fitzgerald - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (1:26)
16. Abney Park - Winter Wonderland (3:22)
17. Gene Loves Jezebel - Frozen [Razed in Black Mix] (5:00)
18. Wumpscut - Die In Winter(clipped) (4:34)
19. Eels - Christmas Is Going To The Dogs (Grinch Soundtrack) (2:57)

Srsly? I don't even. It goes there.
20. Legendary Pink Dots - Lisa's Party (clipped) (2:58)
21. Robyn Hitchcock - College of Ice (3:41)
22. Trans-Siberian Orchestra - A Mad Russians Christmas (4:42)
23. Vernian Process - The Maple Leaf Rag (clipped) (2:24)
24. Cheshire Cat - cat001 (0:05)

"I can't know everything. Pretend you're an orphan ... oh, that was rude, you are..." American McGee's Alice
25. Edda - Leikr Elds Ok Isa [The Song Of Fire And Ice] (2:18)
26. Steeleye Span - Gaudete (levelled) (2:22)

This one took a little rebalancing and screwing with, before it would play nice, but I think I finally made it fit here.
27. Arcanta - Carol of the Bells (4:51)
28. Sunday Driver - Snow Song (2:50)

I just got this track, about a month ago. Man, this band is really pretty awesome. Go buy their album.
29. The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping (5:09)

This is a must. It's here every year. It's been a standard since my mum had it on cassette, when I was a kid.
30. Alice - alcz2009 (0:01)
"Don't I know you?" American McGee's Alice.
31. Faith And The Muse - Iago's Demise (levelled) (3:00)

Another case that needed some dicking around with, but I love this song, and I never get to use it, 'cause it's not balanced for mixing. So, I kinda fixed that.
32. E.S. Posthumus - Ebla (6:09)
33. Mediæval Bæbes - The Coventry Carol (4:24)

Used a different rendition of this, last year. I love this song, in its older forms, and if there's one band that'll do it right...
34. Torley Wong - Snow (2:12)
35. Faith & Disease - 07 Silver and Gold (3:35)
36. The Pogues - Fairytale Of New York (4:35)

This is a must. It's here every year. And it's always the last track. And it's never our last... *laughs*
