MIKE PATTON GETS IN THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT
Maybe it’s because I’m Jewish, or maybe I’m just an evil liberal participating in The War on Christmas, but few things annoy me more than holiday songs. They pretty much universally suck. Except for Dean Martin’s “Let it Snow.” I like that one. But that may just be because it was used at the end of Die Hard.
ANYWAY, now I guess there’s a second exception to the rule: Mike Patton crooning “The Christmas Song” for John Zorn’s new Happy Birthday Jesus! release, A Dreamer’s Christmas. Patton’s velvety voice is so good it makes me go all weak in the knees pretty much no matter what he’s singing.
A Dreamer’s Christmas is out now.
