It's Christmas time BETTER be GOOD!

If there is one thing that is more frightening than Halloween it has to be Christmas. Strangers all around dressed in Santa costumes wanting to talk to your children and have them sit on their laps...any other time of the year the thought of this kind of thing going on would be the cause for Amber Alerts and stranger danger reports. Not to mention Santa knowing all your movements...he knows if your kids have been good or naughty. I think they put people like that on trial and put them behind bars. Or make them live in tents outside the city, at the very least.

So on this day of costumed people prowling the streets and stories of stranger danger on the news and Amber Alerts and all that festive stuff that comes with this time of year, I present to you yet another selection of Christmas tunes that seem to be perfect for the Halloween season.

Sorry, no podcast this year!

Robin Gibb-Come Some Christmas Eve or Halloween

OOOOOHHHHH, that was a SPOOOOOOOOOKY one, little boys and girls! I will give you a few minutes if you need to go change your pants before opening the next file! SCARY STUFF!

Coffin Caddies-Halloween on Xmas

Granted, this is about Halloween on December 25, not the other way around. But this is certainly a good, fun tune. From last year's new release Psychobilly Christmas.

Harley Poe-It's Christmas Time Again

The spookiest time of year for little boys and girls! A little bit of Tim Burton feeling here, to me anyway. This nice ditty comes from A Very Standard Christmas.

Hot Buttered Elves-Better Be Good

Keeping with the theme. From A Very Lo-Fi Christmas.

Wendyhouse-The Evil Santa Klaus

Now this is what I'm talking about. From a CD I imported from New Zealand. Available at

James White-Christmas With Satan

Decent enough, but somehow I don't think the music really fits the concept of the song. This comes from the ZE Christmas Record.

Regina Hexaphone-Christmas Moon

Starting off about as scary as we started. OK, so these aren't exactly the sounds you are used to hearing around Halloween time. But this song about celebrating Christmas under the moon with vampires is really quite a unique song, and what better time of year to share it than now? This comes from Have a Holly Raleigh Christmas Vol. 3.

And if you haven't heard it already, be sure to check out last year's podcast. Fun stuff.
