As we rapidly accelerate towards the winter holiday season, we’ve got a Hanukkah song and a Christmas song that go together like music and lyrics! Uh, you know, fine. “Hot Rod Hanukkah” by Meshugga Beach Party is a lukewarm track off of an otherwise great surf rock album, while “Christmas Nights in Blue” by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in carolization.
Our ranking music in this episode is “Wizards in Winter” by the Trans-Siberia Orchestra.
Thank you to CJ for requesting “Christmas Nights in Blue”!
