Thanks for all the songs Nicofan-well all except the Alivn and the Chipmunks anyway :scared: I never developed a fondness for their music :p.....But nothing says Christmas like a Billy Squire song though :rolls: What fun! When Mtv and I were young (I need a "wistful" smiley here :lol: )

I will have to think of songs I like and post some links too :)

kidnicky
11-30-2008, 03:54 AM
sorry I just don't like christmas songs :shrug: I can deal with people being really excited about this season but listening Christmas songs during the whole month is definetly not my thing :lol: so I'm sorry, I can't think about any Christmas song that I like because there's no such thing for me :rolls:

NicoFan
11-30-2008, 02:12 PM
I know, the Alvin and the Chipmunks pick was lame, but they keep playing them on the radio here (it's a all Christmas music weekend! :lol:) and I think they are cute with that song. :o :lol:

Love the retro MTV too - I miss those days on MTV when they actually played music. It's such a bad station now. :lol:

Kid - you are too funny! :lol: Hopefully you'll find one here that you'll like eventually. :yeah: :lol:

NicoFan
11-30-2008, 02:12 PM
Oh and for the record, I'm putting up my Christmas tree this week! :yeah: And will listen to Christmas songs while I am doing it. :lol:

Sparko1030
11-30-2008, 07:29 PM
Kid, how can you not like any Christmas music??? You like music and you like Christmas so what's not to like about Christmas music? (just have to tease you a bit Kid :lol: :hug: )

Here is a video from one of my favorite movies, "Love Actually". The song itself is "crap" as Billy Mack says but its also hilarious. Plus there is plenty for the guys to like ;)

NicoFan
12-01-2008, 03:02 AM
Great one Sparko!! :yeah:

I love the movie, and even though the song is "crap," I love it too! :lol:

Now I'm going to have to watch the entire movie this week. (For like the 15th time. :o :lol:)

kidnicky
12-01-2008, 03:33 AM
I'm sorry but I don't even like when my fav singers come with those Christmas cd's :rolls:

I know, it's been ages since I stop watching MTV, now it's just a channel with pure crap on it :o

Good luck with the Xmas tree NicoFan ;) I'll have to start working on that soon, the difficult part about all that is to start looking for all the boxes with the decorations :unsure: :lol:

NicoFan
12-01-2008, 05:11 PM
Hopefully I can get the tree up tonight or tomorrow...if not Wednesday at the latest. I'm so excited. :bounce: :haha:

Sparko1030

My fav singer put out a great Christmas cd a couple of years ago and its my favorite one now-here's a sample :banana:

And can you believe that when MTv first started is was almost ALL music videos :eek: Those really were the good old days as far as Mtv is concerened.

NicoFan
12-01-2008, 09:44 PM
Oh I love Sarah McLachlan - beautiful song. Great choice... :yeah:

I remember the all videos too on MTV - those were the good old days for MTV. It just sucks now. :sad:

NicoFan
12-02-2008, 02:42 AM
Okay, the video isn't good, but it's Bruce!!! Singing "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." Yeay! I love Santa... :lol:

NicoFan is really obsessed about Christmas :eek: I'm scared now :unsure: :lol:

oh well when MTV was a good channel those were the days when you can watch real music videos, there's no such thing as good music now, most of it it's crap esp if it's on MTV :o :rolls:

Good luck with the tree NicoFan ;) ... I've to start working on that but I don't want to, I need someone to help me with that :lol:

Sparko1030
12-02-2008, 04:05 AM
Another good one Nicofan :dance: Of course Bruce rocks :rocker:

Kid, you need something to get you in the holiday spirit but what would that be since you don't like Christmas music? Too bad there is no chance of you getting some snow to get you in the mood of Christmas :lol:

kidnicky
12-02-2008, 04:09 AM
I'm in the mood for Christmas but not in the mood to be working on that :rolls:

Sparko1030
12-02-2008, 04:16 AM
Oh! Well, it is a lot of work getting all the decorations out and decorating. Oh, to be rich and be able to pay someone to do all that for us :awww: Now there is a good Christmas wish :lol:

Sparko1030
12-02-2008, 04:07 PM
OK, here's my contribution for today(Nicofan, you should have never gotten me started on this :lol: ) This is a blast from the past-and its fun to see who you can recognize and who is still around today. One thing makes me a little sad about this video is that not much has changed in Africa in the 25 yrs following this video but that is a subject for another time :awww:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jEnTSQStGE

NicoFan
12-03-2008, 12:00 AM
Oh, another great one! :yeah:

Sorry, but isn't this fun?!?! :lol:

And yes, it is sad that nothing much has changed in Africa. It's so sad to watch everything going on there knowing there's not much individually we can do. One thing for Bush is that he helped Africa a lot.

Oh a more upbeat note though - here's a silly Christmas song - Rudolph!!! You can't have Christmas without Rudolph leading the way. :lol:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pISgVQOj_QM

12-03-2008, 02:41 AM
Sparko which exactly is the christmas wish, to be rich or to have someone to decorate your house for you? :aplot: :rolls:

Sparko1030
12-03-2008, 03:41 AM
LOVE RUDOLPH Nicofan!!! :bounce: (and yes, this is alot of fun ;) )I expected the Burl Ives version but that was the original Gene Autry version :yeah: I think the cartoon is on tomorrow night (on ABC)-Although I will be watching the Christmas at Rocerfeller Center on NBC becuase David Cook is suppose to be on :lol: (I can watch Rudolph later since we have the video :D )

Oh, and did you get your tree up yet Nicofan?

Sparko1030
12-03-2008, 03:45 AM
Sparko which exactly is the christmas wish, to be rich or to have someone to decorate your house for you? :aplot: :rolls:


Both!!! :angel: But if I can only have one then it would be rich (or richer anyway :p ) If I was rich then I wouldn't have to wish for someone to decorate for me, I could just pay someone to do it :lol:

Sparko1030
12-03-2008, 05:21 AM
Oh, I forgot Nicofan-Helping in Africa was a good thing Bush did-about the only thing-but a very important thing. :yeah:

Jaztheman
12-03-2008, 07:44 AM
I love that song Sparko. :(

The main things about christmas though is watching Home Alone and Jingle All The Way. Awesome films that are shown every year at christmas time. Must admit I was a little disheartened by last years Christmas Day television but I'm sure this year will be better. Putting the Christmas tree up on Saturday which will no doubt be a lot of fun. :D

Christmas is awesome.

NicoFan
12-03-2008, 02:01 PM
Welcome Jaztheman. :) And especially welcome to someone who loves Christmas! :lol:

I love watching Home Alone I and II at Christmas time too. :yeah: It wouldn't be Christmas without them. Those and of course It's a Wonderful Life. I've never seen Jingle All the Way - I'll have to watch it this year.

Sparko - I should have posted the Burl Ives one instead...what was I thinking? :lol: And thanks for the heads up on Rudolph on TV tonight. :yeah:

I would like to be rich too. :lol: (Though I can't say I like rich people too much. :tape:) Then I could do what I love all day long: read and watch tennis. :lol:

And the Christmas tree goes up tonight. :yeah:

Oh and forgot - I probably won't watch Rockefeller Center because it always makes me feel bad that they kill a tree just for one season. :sad: It is pretty though.

Sparko1030
12-03-2008, 02:41 PM
:wavey: Welcome fellow Christmas enthusiasts Jaztheman! I love "Home Alone"! Like Nicofan I've never seen "Jingle all the Way" either but I will have to now :lol: Have fun putting your tree up Sat!:yippee: And Nicofan,you have fun tonight :banana:

I will assume your tree is artificial Nicofan :lol: We always get real trees- but unlike those really big ones, they grow these on farms just for sale at Christmas so it doens't bother me (otherwise I am tree hugger :angel: )

Side note: This is funny-just now on a local morning news show, they just interviewed a tree farm owner and he said tree farms are like oxygen factories :lol:

Haha, there's lots of us Christmas lovers around, it Just seems that the non-Christmas lovers are growing! We better keep spreading the love. ;)

Home Alone I and II are Just awesome films. They have something about them that never make them old and no matter how many times you watch them they Just seem more and more awesome. Jingle All The Way has Arnold Shwarzaneger in it so it is automatically fantastic, so I'd definitely recommened it this Christmas. :yeah:

Don't know whether I have seen It's A Wonderful Life, but I'll look out for it this year. Cheers for the heads up.

Tree farms are like oxygen factories? :lol:

Also cheers for the welcome, guys.

NicoFan
12-03-2008, 05:34 PM
My tree is artificial...but it still looks nice. :lol: I'm kind of a nut when it comes to trees - just like Christmas, I love them. :o (I'm sure there are those who say I'm a bit of a nut about more than trees and Christmas but that's besides the point. :lol:) I'm definitely a tree hugger.

Hmmm...tree farms as oxygen factories? I don't like the idea, but they may have a point. Supposedly forestry including tree cutting can be good. Just hate the idea of cutting down a poor little innocent harmless tree. :angel: :rolls:

Jaztheman - if you like old movies, you'll like It's a Wonderful Life. Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. Also if you like to cry at movies, because I always cry at the end...big time. :lol:

I love Arnold so I'll definitely rent Jingle All The Way. :yeah:

I like some old films so I probably will like it, hopefully. About the crying bit though... I think you're on your own there! :lol:

Kindergarten Cop + Jingle All The Way = Arnold Heaven :worship:

NicoFan
12-03-2008, 05:43 PM
The sign of a great movie is if you cry at some point of the movie. ;) :lol: That's how I rate chick flicks...if I don't cry, it doesn't get high marks. :lol:

And I love Kindergarten Cop - one of my favorite movies of all time. :yeah: (Even though I didn't cry once during the film. :lol:).

The Christmas tree is up!!! I started working on it as soon as I got home. :lol:

I listened to Il Divo's Christmas CD while I was putting it up so here is Il Divo singing my favorite Christmas song of all: O Holy Night

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMLDT3fbMQo

NicoFan
12-03-2008, 10:26 PM
Okay, I know it's not a Christmas song, but when I was searching for O Holy Night with Il Divo singing, I saw a video with Il Divo singing my favorite Christian song: You Raise Me Up. Won't happen again, I'll only put up Christmas songs, but I couldn't help myself here. :lol:

Sparko1030
12-04-2008, 04:13 AM
:woohoo: Nicofan's tree is finally up!!! Congratulations!!! I'm with Kid, we need to see some pics now :yeah:

I love both of those songs Nicofan-thanks for the links! I will listen to them tomorrow though since its getting late and I'm trying to get to bed earlier these days :lol: Also tomorrow, I am going to see if David's Cook's performance is on youtube yet and post that link. He sang that Christmas song of John Lennon's with just an acoutstic guitar-very nice :)

NicoFan
12-04-2008, 12:56 PM
I'll try to remember to take a pix of the famous tree. :lol: It's a little one though....cute, but small. Only two feet, and I put it on the table.

Shoot, I missed David Cook. I switched a few times between Rudolph and Rock Center, and everytime I put on Rock Center, I got singers like the Jonas Bros and Miley Cyrus. :eek: It goes without saying that I quickly switched back to Rudolph. ;) :lol:

Sparko1030
12-04-2008, 03:45 PM
It doesnt' matter what size your tree is Nicofan-in this case size really doesn't matter! ;) -and I can't wait to see pics :yeah:


And yeah, there were some dull acts on besides David last night. He was on close to the end of the show so I had to wait through a lot of crap to see him :lol: He actually sang two songs, one before the national broadcast started. I guess in NYC they they actually have a 2 hour show and only the local channel carries the first hour. Anyway, here are his 2 songs:

Thanks Nicofan :wavey:

Here is something (not a song this time) for all of us apparently Christmas tree obssesed people :p Find your type of tree and what it says about your personality. Me, I'm the one with all the sentimental ornaments that go as far back as 30 yrs :eek: Hubby often teases me we need two trees for all the ornaments :lol:

12-08-2008, 05:04 PM
Thanks for the link Sparko!

Blah, none of those are right for me. :lol:

I have an artificial tree (:ras: to them for calling it a fake tree) because I'm a treehugger, not because I won't (or can't) spend the money to buy a real one. :lol:

Sparko - I like the old ornaments too :yeah: but I break things easily :eek: so I figure I'll just keep them safely stored away. So I started buying the wooden ornaments and use them primarily now. Also some handmades ornaments too.

And hey get two trees for all your ornaments!! One for the living room and one for the family room. :lol:

Sparko1030
12-09-2008, 04:56 AM
Beautiful choice Nicofan! Such an amazing voice :worship:


Kid, now who has the excuses? :devil: Still, pics would be nice Nicofan ;)
Two trees would be a good solution if we had a living room and a family room, but those rooms are the same room in our house :lol: I know how you feel about the old ornanments-wooden ones are a good choice instead :yeah: On, and they should have had a treehugger catagory Nicofan! I think a lot of people feel like you do.

I believe you about your cable Kid, but I still have to tease you ;) :hug:
Now, with all these songs, there MUST be something you like Kid, isn't there? :shrug:

When I first heard the song "Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer" Nicofan, I didn't like it but it has grown on me over the years-just so silly it is funny :lol: Pachabel's Cannon sung by the kids a nice one too :yeah:

NicoFan

I had forgotten about the Bing Crosby/David Bowie duet! What a strange pairing yet it works :yeah:

One of my favorite Christmas songs is "O Holy Night" but I don't have a favorite version by anyone so I was just looking through all the versions on Youtube and found this one. The only thing is when I saw "Studio 60" I just thought it was a reoreded in some studio by that name but its from the short lived drama by the same name. Despite my confusion, this is an awesome instrumental :eek: gave me goodsebumps.....

NicoFan
12-11-2008, 03:02 PM
Oh, thanks for posting. O Holy Night is my favorite too!

I'll listen to it later today.

(And I remember Studio 60 - it got a lot of excellent critical reviews, but no one watched it. Kind of like most of my fav shows (and your Pushing Diasies) :sad:)

In this part of the world is really hard to have any christmas spirit when is summer and you have to stand more than 30 °C every day and night :lol: :silly:

And Lovely tree Kid! and beautiful nativity too! (that's what we call them here anyway :) ) I will have to see if I (and by "I" I mean hubby since I never figured out how to post pics here :o ) can get a pic of our tree up now :lol:

Sparko1030
12-22-2008, 08:56 PM
Looking at your picture again, I see the wonderful green foliage outside your window Kid! How nice that looks now that its about 0 degrees out here with about a foot total of snow :awww: The weather outside really is frightful-and Bailey's is just what I need :rolls:

kidnicky
12-23-2008, 03:30 AM
yeah it's a christmas miracle :lol: and I like the song, everything is great in Sinatra's voice ;) but you can see that it is a well done commercial :) (btw I got one bottle of baileys as xmas present from my company, that an another 2 bottles :o lol!)

thanks Sparko, you always tell me about the word "nativity" and I always forget it :lol: ... I know you're suffering for the snow but that's how a xmas it's supossed to be, not like mine that seem that we're in summer not winter :rolls: and yes I know about the green, here all that you can see it's green everywhere :lol: :p

And all that green outside!!! I know you don't appreciate it, but if you spent a couple days shoveling snow, you'd never want to see white outside your window again. :lol:

Maybe I'll see if they need English teachers in Mexico. :yeah:

kidnicky
12-23-2008, 05:18 PM
I do appreciate the green but if you'd have the same hot weather during the entire year then you'd be crying for a little bit of snow :rolls: oh and NicoFan, you won't have the same weather in all my country, in the middle and in the north the cold weather is as bad as yours :p

Sparko1030
12-23-2008, 07:29 PM
Thanks for the Queen song Nicofan :wavey: I have to admit I had not heard it before but I like it :yeah:

It might get colder north of you Kid, but I can't believe it gets quite as cold or snowy in northern Mexico as as it does where Nicofan and I live :awww: :lol:

Here is the full verison of the song in the comercial Kid, just for you! :hug: Hubby and I like Frank Sinatra too-he's my favorite (male voice) from that era :worship:

12-24-2008, 04:29 AM
Yeah, Frank was not just the best of his era, but of all time Kid, and he was a cutie pie Nicofan :yeah: I think he was one of the first singers that his fans just went nuts about.

The same cannot be said for the "singing" tennis players :rolls: They were good sports to give it a try though-and most of them don't speak English that well (Querry of course does not have that excuse :smash: :lol: )

I'm so excited that Santa is starting to fly! :bounce:

:lol:

And for those of you Grinch's out there who don't believe in Santa...here's a famous article that was written in the US back in the 1800s in response to a letter about whether Santa exists or not called Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus...

In 1897, Frank Church, an editorial writer for The New York Sun, wrote this response to a letter from a young reader. It became one of the most famous editorials in American history.

We take pleasure in answering at once and thus prominently the communication below, expressing at the same time our great gratification that its faithful author is numbered among the friends of The Sun:

“Dear Editor:

“I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, ‘If you see it in The Sun, it’s so.’

“Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?

“Virginia O’Hanlon”

Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! How dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that’s no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You may tear apart the baby’s rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus! Thank God! He lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

kidnicky
12-26-2008, 06:07 PM

Sparko1030
12-28-2008, 04:32 AM
That sounds like fun Nicofan :yeah: Maybe Kid would post a few then too ;)
I can't think of too many New Year's Eve songs other than "Ald Lang Sang" Kid (which I am sure I didn't spell correctly but am too lazy to look it up right now :o ) But we can post what we know-and New Year's Eve will be here soon so we don't need as many as the Christmas songs :lol:

kidnicky
12-29-2008, 02:37 AM
I also tried to look up for some New year songs but the few that I listened sounded really sad and that's the last thing that we all need right now :rolls:
