Holiday season is upon us, folks.

It’s November, which means it’s almost December, which means it’s almost Holiday time!! Well I’m here to bring you what will surely be my favorite new Christmas song this season. Remember that 90’s SNL sketch where Chris Kattan, Tracy Morgan, Horatio Sanz and Jimmy Fallon sang “I Wish it Was Christmas Today” with bad Christmas sweaters, a keyboard and a little head shake? (Only video I could find is here). Anychristmas! Strokes frontman (and one of my most favorite singers ever) Julian Casablancas has done a cover. Legit!

CHRISTMAS

 

12-year-old Elizabeth is glowing right now

Rivers Cuomo sings “Viva La Vida”. Why couldn’t Rivers have had this much personality in the good old days of Weezer? All I got was a reclusive singer who hid in boxes and wore full stage makeup 24/7.

Whatevs!

For your listening pleasure: classical music.

Today is a fun day at Johannes Leonardo, as our new work with WQXR, New York City’s only Classical Music radio station, and part of WNYC just came out!

The radio station was almost shut down before being bought up and saved by Public Radio International (thus saving Classical Music in NYC), so we did a little project to get the music even closer to New Yorkers, by way of nytimes.com. We used banner space to create a streaming music player for WQXR that has been curated with music suited for each of the seven sections of the paper in which they’ll appear. Tailored classical music while you read the days news, what could be better?  The player appears on random articles, but so far I’ve seen it on today’s most popular article in the times, right here.

Nice little write up about it right here, too!

Take a Seat, Collin.

Because it’s my turn to post something music-y.

Pitchfork picks the top 500 hits of the decade. My iTunes app is officially closed for the rest of the week.

First one to #1 gets a prize. No peeking.
