Christmas Music - Barenaked Ladies



The band is irreverent, clever, silly, and self-deprecating, and also has some fun music that is full of joy and hooks. Barenaked Ladies are Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson and Tyler Stewart, a Canadian band with a couple of hit songs, including One Week, which went #1 in the US and all around the world in 1998. In 2004 they released Barenaked for the Holidays, and I love it very much. If you don't own it, you should.

The first video I will run is their original song, Elf's Lament, an irreverent look at the life of Santa's elves, and the possibility of an impending strike...



On the medley God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings, which features Sarah McLachlan, is more traditional, and just beautiful.
