I'm not sure if this should've gone in the pre-existing What are you listening to thread (https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=160.0) or in a new topic, obviously I decided to put it in a new topic.

What kind of music are you listening to in order to get into the Christmas spirit? It doesn't have to be a carol, but it can be.
I'll go first: I've been listening to rock Christmas music! Spotify added a few new genre radios, one of which is titled "Rock Christmas". I was expecting "Jingle Bell Rock":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=virNhD5Z_7I
and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6xNuUEnh2g
but instead songs like "Zat You Santa Clause by Smash Mouth":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3ZETI7ZVgk
started playing  O.O Hey, I'm not complaining! This station rocks! (Pun intended)
Anyways, what music are you listening to this season?

(I apologize if you don't celebrate Christmas and if I may have offended you)

@c4ooo protip: Don't use the [youtube] tag. Browsers block it automatically now that CW is https instead of http. Just paste the video URL without any tag.

As for Christmas music, here are my favorite songs lately:

X-Mas Project (heavy metal) - Mary Boy Child
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDS855adG9I

RBO - C'est Nono Noel (parody song in French that makes fun of Christmas parties and shopping)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TYdde_7CqA

Another parody song

Feliz Navidad
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihW56Xa3XGQ


Otherwise, for the classics, I am not into the slow songs except maybe one that I forgot the name of.

I prefer either the more rhythmic stuff like La Promenade en Traineau (I forgot if that one exists in English):

I know that Christmas is over, but here is a nice French version of "Angels we have Heard of High" :

[spoiler]:trollface: , but seriously, it really sounds similar and there's even an actual Saint Seiya cover: https://youtube.com/watch?v=wVEqY9duoHw[/spoiler]



Also wow @Juju , how could I forget about 23 Décembre? It's one of my favorites. I guess I was looking at carols too much :P.

I am serious. At first, when I heard that song, it sounded a bit cool, then I heard the chorus and said "Wow... really?". Also the original is much better. Bernard Minet had some cool songs, but they did not fit properly with their respective animes and shows. The only ones that actually fit are Sailor Moon, his 1987 Goldorak opening, Jaspion and Judo Boy themes. In Saint Seiya's case, not only it doesn't fit, but it sounds like Christmas music :P
