I initially didn't notice the 'fame' in that sentence. Which was a little jarring.

I thought those were the lyrics to Jingle Bell Rock.

His fame has been spreading for a while now. It's spreading slowly and it's itchy and a bit oozy, and should probably be looked at by a doctor.

It's my favorite version.

One hopes that this makes it easier for the big guy to remember.

Once PinkStainlessTail is on the Jimmy Kimmel show, you know he's made it.

No, no. That's "The, Christmas music, THE!"

Last year I heard his song on the radio.

Muwahaha. I just infected the office xmas luncheon.
(The joke will be on me tomorrow when nobody will stop singing it.)

Depends. I don't know Germish too well. Maybe it's Das Kristmas Musik. At any rate, I want to kill it in the face with a claw hammer.

Why just the face? Unless you remove the vocal chords and lungs, The Christmas Music can still wheeze and gurgle. Which is much worse - worse than even those singing cats.

But it's not on mefi music? I can't download mp3 files...

Somehow, I'm relishing the idea of wheezing, gurgling, undead Christmas music oozing from all the mall speakers, frightening the shoppers. I think I'll leave it at the face until next year, at least.

But apparently there is a remix up there...

Now he's more famous than the group that gave him his username! And although I loooove The Red Krayola, I'm not denying PinkStainlessTail anything.

Toten, Kristmasmusik, toten!

(Yes, it has been over ten years since I took German, with next to zero practice since then. Why?)

I can never remember if rock beats jingle or jingle beats rock.

I've been playing this song in my shop and people looove it . It is so far the only xmas song people have "asked" about.

inigo2, you can use the MeFi Music Player to play the mp3 even though it's not hosted on-site. Check it out here.

Toten, Kristmasmusik, toten!

Stirb, Weihnachtsmusik, stirb!

(just, you know, FYI. And I'll have to agree with the sentiment. In general. PinkStainlessTail's song is, of course, marvellous.)
posted by ClarissaWAM at 11:47 AM on December 20, 2006


Yeah, "toten" means "kill," doesn't it? And the imperative lops off the ending. And I forgot all about it being Weinachtsmusik. Good thing this wasn't AskMe.

w-g p has come up with a GREAT idea... a Christmas/Holiday/Solstice version of "rock paper scissors" with "jingle rock bell"... the hard part is figuring out what hand gestures to use for "bell" and "jingle"...

You could cup your hand downward to represent the 'bell', and make a 'J' shape with your thumb for 'jingle'? I don't know...

Die, christmas music, DIE!

I fully support this endeavour.

Except Fairy Tale Of New York by The Pogues, because that is awesome.

Töten, yes. And yes, if it was a singular imperative it would be "Töte!" (but then, do you want someone to kill the Christmas music, or do you want the Christmas music to kill...? Kill, Christmas music, kill! *ahem* )

I think an inverted V-for-Victory/peacesign for Bell, and a thumbs up with your thumb waggling back and forth for Jingle. (And the rock sign would actually be The Horns, for added sass.)

Kill, Christmas music, kill

Oh God, everything about this website hurts so good.

Well, I posted this on the (now dead) previous thread, but:

This is spreading viral-marketing style throughout my high school. People sing it in the hall ways, and it's on a couple network drives. No escape, I tell ya.

I just downloaded it and played it several times at an office holiday gathering. One guy begged us to turn it off but I think otherwise it went over really well.
