If you thought Bob Dylan singing Christmas songs was a little off kilter, today’s special Christmas blend of the Velvet Underground combined with a Christmas classic from Michael Jackson created by the mashup master Divide And Kreate will definitely have you doing a double take.  It’s from the holiday mashup compilation Santastic III in 3-D.

A couple of tunes to tide you over while you wait for me to summarize the rest of my musical weekend, including Day 3 of the Popped! Festival and Bag Of Songs night at The M Room.

Give a listen to Fugazi‘s Waiting Room and a 1966 alternate take of The Velvet Underground doing Waiting For My Man from the rare Norman Dolph Acetate in all it’s snap and crackle glory. So hang out a while, more photos and recaps to come.

Today’s five kind of sprung out of a conversation I was having last weekend with my friends Ms Carly Girl About Town and Mr. SinABox Camera about what songs I should post for Easter. It evolved into a lengthy discussion about the use of biblical quotes in rock songs, but I’ll save that for another day. Easter’s now past, but it was an interesting idea which I’ve kind of simplified a bit for today’s five. Some varying interpretions of Jesus in song for you today.
