#4M : Bob Rivers Christmas Music



Today’s theme for #MondaysMusicMovesMe or #4M has been chosen by Marie of Xmas Dolly.  She has chosen all of the themes for the month of December.  As her name implies, she is a big fan of the Christmas Holiday, and as such has she has chosen the entire month to be Holiday music. Let the collective groan begin.


This week three of our four week Christmas tour.

I’m still not quite ready to settle down and be serious.  I’ve always enjoyed a good laugh.

A few decades ago, I purchased a handful of CDs put out by a Seattle radio DJ.  He had a flare for twisting Christmas tunes and making them a lot of fun to listen to.  Having spent 20 years in the drizzly Pacific Northwest, I’ve come to appreciate the lightheartedness of Bob Rivers.

I still have those CDs in my possession today.

I did a search on YouTube for Bob River’s Christmas and sorted by view count. And that is how I came up with today’s playlist. I’m sharing the top 10 songs from that sort.

  • 12 Pains of Christmas
  • Eminem - Jingle Bells (don’t let the title fool you. This is really Bob River)
  • Police Stop My Car
  • Chipmunks Roasting On An Open Fire
  • AC/DC - Jingle Hells Bells (again, don’t let the title fool you!)
  • I Am Santa Claus
  • White Trash Christmas
  • Walking Round In Womens Underwear
  • The Chimney Song
  • The Restroom Door Said Gentlemen



For those of you who are a bit more traditionalist - do not fret.  I’ve got something special just for you next week.

Enjoy!

  1. Mary,

    I love Bob Rivers Christmas song parodies! He's very clever with his lyrics. I've used many of these features in past Friday Sillies and if you recall I even did a Twisted Christmas #BoTB last December. I really needed a laugh after last week's fiasco which resulted in damaging our old Camry's driver door and hurting my leg. *smack forehead* I'm okay. My leg is bruised badly as is my ego. I'll survive, though. ;) Have a joyfully blessed Christmas and thank you for joining the 4M gang on the dance floor, my friend! XO

    1. I agree with you Holly!

      This year has been pretty stressful - but then it seems to always be stressful this time of year. I've goofed around for three weeks now, next week it's time to get a little bit serious.
