I guess it was the shock of Cale's death and ressurrection that had me in shock, but at first, I thought you were all serious about your xmas music recommendations. But then I remembered that I'm not allowed to take anything at face value on this list (how 90's), and I'm pleased to announce that I've finally peeled back the layers of reference, satire, and irony, and my God! this is hilarious. Thanks for the laughs, guys, love the multiple recursive irony. You're piling it on thick.
PS I especially like the current subthread re: favorite music during commercials. For a minute, I thought you all really watch TV, the shaper of mass-taste. Good one...

No, it doesn't. Øivind was one of the best people we had on the list.
