Songs of the Season, Part 20

Flagpole, the local free alternative weekly in Athens, GA, used to put these Christmas compilation cassettes out of local bands doing Christmas songs. There was a lot of neat stuff on them, and probably the most creative was this song that Porn Orchard recorded called "This Holiday Season." It's a spoof of the David Bowie/Bing Crosby duet, imagining a similar scenario involving Tom Waits and Peter Murphy (with an echo on "Peter Murphy's" voice the whole time). For some reason, whomever uploaded this to YouTube chose to leave off the skit that leads into it, so you only get half the joke here, but it's still pretty funny. And they get the guitar sound from Waits' 80's albums exactly right. Merry Christmas, everybody!
