I am just gonna go on record and say that most Christmas music by rockers completely sucks...

I don't want to hear Stevie Nicks singing "Silent Night" or Chris Cornell crooning "Ave Maria"

Rockers, who spend most of their time doing sex and drugs singing about the birth of Christ is beyond bizarre.  It's freaking creepy! 

And that is just one problem with rockers doing Christmas songs

HOWEVER, there are a very small minority of Christmas songs by rockers that are sort of ... kinda ...passible. So that's what we're gonna talk about on this week's Loudini Rock & Roll Circus Podcast.

Topics Discussed:

https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/

Run Run Rudolph

Rock around the Christmas Tree

Jingle Bell Rock

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Jesus Christ  (Big Star)

Oh Holy Night (Eric Cartman)/ Christmas time in Hell

Feliz Navidad

Merry Christmas (I don't want to fight)

Fairytale of New York... The Pogues with Kirsty McCall

Father Christmas

People will ALWAYS find something to complain about. Some times I think that  complaining is truly the civilized world's contribution to history.

For instance many artists have taken to social media blasting Spotify for how little it pays artists. But are they actually ripping artists off or is there more to this jpeg than meets the eye?

Ok... I know that Van Halen replaced David Lee Roth with Sammy Hagar and went on to have HUGE success with him but most bands who have tried replacing iconic musicians have not been nearly as lucky.

While I personally prefer Dave Navarro's playing over John Frusciante's, most Red Hot Chilli Peppers  fans did not and there was a great out cry for Fruciante's return.

Groupies… Beyond the Cliche‘

We have heard about rock and roll groupies. The popular misconception is that they are basically ladies who have sex with rock stars.... period.

But the role of the groupie is much more nuanced than most of us realized.

Check out what Pam De  Barres, groupie to Keith Moon and a few others says about her role, "I’m still trying to set that word [groupie] straight because all it means is just a music lover who wants to be near the band. Period. That’s all it means, in whatever capacity. Sexual? Sometimes yes, but also friends, helpers, assistants, guides… we wanted to uplift and enhance these people who moved us so much. That’s all that a groupie is. They are music-loving muses."

On this week's (tonight's) Loudini Rock and Roll Circus Podcast we will tell the stories of the greatest groupies in rock and roll and dispel their sordid reputations!

Rock music has long since been characterized by 4/4 time with heavy emphasis on beat numbers 2 and 4. This means that the division of the beats is a repeating sequence of 1 2 3 4, 1 2 3 4 etc...

However, in the true spirit of rock and roll rebellion a lot of bands have defied this "rule" with massively successful songs with odd beat divisions (aka odd meter or odd time signatures) of 5/4 (1 2 3 4 5), 7/4 (1 2 3 4 5 6 7) and even mixed meter time signatures like 1 2 3 4 and 1 2 3 as an example.

Have I confused you yet? LOL!

Don't worry. Because on this week's Loudini Rock & Roll Circus podcast we will explain it all as we tell you about 10 bands who released massively successful songs with odd time signatures.
