Christmas Turkey is a Christmas-themed album released in 1997 by the Canadian Comedy Music group The Arrogant Worms. For the uninformed, The Arrogant Worms are a Canadian musical comedy trio that parodies many musical genres. They are well known for their humorous on-stage banter in addition to their great music. When not spoofing a particular style of music, the Worms' material pokes fun at various aspects of daily life in Canada with songs like "Canada's Really Big", "The Last Saskatchewan Pirate", "Me Like Hockey", "We are the Beaver" and "Proud to Be Canadian". In fact you haven't lived untill you've heard We Are the Beaver. It's Awesome. The Worms are frequently mistakenly credited with performing "Eskimo" (often mistakenly titled "I'm the only Gay Eskimo" or "Gay Eskimo") by Corky and the Juice Pigs, "Cows with Guns" by Dana Lyons, or "The Toronto Song" and "The White House Burned (The War of 1812)" by Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie, along with various "Weird Al" songs and many other comedies and parodies by miscellaneous bands. Great change of pace Christmas album not to mention that the Worms kick ass eh.
The Christmas Song Vincent the Christmas Virus
I've pretty much stayed completely away from Christmas songs this year. This will be my only post to feature any holiday music. But it has been a tradition here at Good Rockin' to post up my favorite Christmas song ever recorded every year. Before I do let me say that with the holidays descending upon us Good Rockin' Tonight will only have one or two more posts this year. The last post of this year will be my annual Top Ten of the year list which I am currently working on. Not sure when it will be up. Then homercat must take a holiday break and won't be back until the first week of 2009. Just a heads up eh. Now my favorite yuletide cheer.
