Auld Lang Syne - The Cucumbers
Album: Ho Ho Ho Spice
Fun fun fun. This version is actually off of one of screenwriter and infamous Christmas music collector Eddie G.
's holiday compilations (thus the weird little Barbie and Ken moment tacked onto the end), but if you're not lucky enough to have one of those hanging around, I suggest getting this tune (sans Barbie) on a charity compilation called Ho Ho Ho Spice. Ho Ho Ho Spice
is a hospice awareness project, and at 15.98 at CDBaby.com
, this double-CD, 49-track compilation is an unbelievable bargain. Feel good in your heart and
your ears. The Cucumbers appear to have numerous
sites out there
, so feel free to visit
any or all of them.
Auld Lang Syne - Tingstad & Rumbel
Album: The Gift
This album has long been a favorite of both mine and my mom's. It's pretty. It's relaxing. It's equally suitable for wrapping gifts or sipping wine. It won't scare cats or old people (unlike many of my holiday faves). You can pick this up at Amazon
or download it at iTunes
. By the way, I can say from experience that "The Gift" does, in fact, make an excellent gift. Tingstad & Rumbel have an official site
, and it's chock full o' goodies, including rare unreleased audio. They have a long and lovely discography. Show them some love by buying some of it and playing it for your cats and grandparents. Trivial fact of the day: I briefly dated one of the producers for their label, Narada
. I didn't know this until he was over at my apartment one day and started pulling my CDs out and showing me his name. When you don't even know your Significant Other is producing the albums you're buying, that's a pretty good clue that your relationship is doomed.
Auld Lang Syne - Esquivel
Album: Merry Xmas From the Space Age Bachelor Pad
"Thanks so much for coming. Muchas gracias. It's been my pleasure to host this holiday happening. I hope you have a wonderful time. Don't be a stranger. Stop by again. Well, I must attend to getting a space shuttle to get some of our borracho amigos on a safe journey home. May you have a fabulous and festive holiday season. Until next time, adios!"
. I do love you so.
Take care of sus amigos borrachos, y'all. Give the shuttle keys to the keymaster. Catch you on the flip side.
