Metal Christmas

Friday, 6 December 2002

it is rather dif­fi­cult to get in­to the christ­mas spir­it with finals/​papers/​projects loom­ing over me. every year i at­tempt it and every year i can­not seem to get ex­cit­ed for the hol­i­days un­til around the 20th, when school ends and i get to go home. i guess for me hol­i­days don’t ex­ist with­out fam­i­ly.

The Friday mp3

this week is an ex­am­ple of one of the ways i go about try­ing to get in­to the hol­i­day mode. by lis­ten­ing to chirst­mas mu­sic. i have this CD called ‘Metal Christmas’ which is a col­lec­tion of var­i­ous Holiday songs by ob­scure peo­ple from now de­funct met­al bands. Iron Maiden, Uriah Heep, Wings, FM. shit like that. but one of those songs isn’t the song of the week. in­stead you get a dou­ble dose, a song by the Smashing Pumpkins and a song by Sarah McLachlan.
