Okay, this has nothing to do with anything, but I need some advice on finding some crazy carols for an event I'm hosting on Dec. 20th.

Last year we hosted this and wrote a few of our own crazy carols with a Hollywood or LA theme (since that's where we're at). Basically, our songs use the same music - we just change the words.

I've done some basic Google searches with no real luck. Someone must be doing this besides me. Help?

Try Googling "filk" with Christmas, Yule or Hanukah. That should get you some good hits.

Oh, if you're in LA you have to do "I'm spending Hannukah in Santa Monica"! Great suggestions, perodicticus! I have a friend who annually sends me cds of the worst Christmas music ever. I play them while we trim the tree and it drives my husband mad. What a great holiday tradition you have going!
Christine Lavin does some great Christmas songs: The "We Wish You a Merry Christmas/Kwanzaa/Solstice/Hannukah/Ramadan/Boxing Day" round (which is very simple), and the "Tacobel Canon."

This isn't a Christmas carol, but one of my favorite Christmas songs is "Santa's Toy Sack" done to the tune of the B-52's "Love Shack".

Also look for Twisted Christmas. They have several CDs out. My favorite of theirs is "The Restroom Door Said Gentlemen."

OMG, awesome suggestions! I haven't heard any of these yet - and we're not far from Santa Monica, so the "Hanukkah in Santa Monica" song sounds very appropriate.

When I was out with friends having boba tea the other night, we were trying to brainstorm, and the best we could come up with was to create a song about Tom & Katie's new child - and call the song (wait for it) "Silent Birth."

Ripping on Hollywood is just ripe with possibilities! >:-)

Trollsdotter, I just read the lyrics for "The Restroom Door Said Gentlemen," and I'm totally in stitches. We're DEFINITELY singing that tomorrow night. Thank you so much again! I have to share just so everyone has a laugh....

The Restroom Door Said Gentlemen

Bob Rivers, Bob Rivers’ Twisted Tunes
(To The Tune of God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen)

1. The restroom door said Gentlemen
So I just walked inside
I took two steps and realized
I'd been taken for a ride
I heard high voices turned and found
The place was occupied

By two nuns, three old ladies, and a nurse
What could be worse?
Than two nuns, three old ladies and a nurse.

2. The restroom door said Gentlemen
It must have been a gag
As soon as I walked in there I ran into some old hag
She sprayed me with a can of mace
And snapped me with her bag.

I could tell this just wouldn't be my day
What can I say?
It just wasn't turning out to be my day.

3. The restroom door said Gentlemen
And I would like to find
The crummy little creep who had the nerve to switch the sign
Cause I've got two black eyes
And one high heel up my behind

Now I can't sit with comfort and joy
Boy, oh, boy
No, I'll never sit with comfort and joy.
