Happy holidays, everybody!

This year we're paying our Christmas dues to the true embodiment of Christmas spirit in the world, Mr. Wayne Coyne of the most amazing Flaming Lips!

His antics on stage on his (+ the rest of the Lips') music on record make every day seem just a little bit like Christmas. Actually, going to a Flaming Lips show is way better than Christmas.

Here's a memento from one of my proudest moments:

Yes, I dressed up as a penguin for a Flaming Lips show and I'm not ashamed to admit it!


This pretty much wraps Viola Music Club for 2010! There'll again be a poll of which tracks you preferred (and which not) pretty soon. See you all in 2011

Lyrics

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the old Santa has gone AWOL
his endless shopping mall tours have taken their toll
and Christmas is getting close
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

and Christmas Eve arrives
you descend from the sky
in your homemade spaceship
amidst the snow confetti
wearing your shiny grey suit
with your loyal crew
of orange elves and furry friends
and Michael, Steven and Kliph

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
you give us a sense of wonder
when we're feeling buried under mundane chores
shake our little snow globe world
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

it's the most wonderful show
our senses overflow
it feels just like Christmas
to be sprinkled with love
the greatest Christmas present
is to treasure the present
and drop all worries and regrets

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the gift that you bring is
more precious than all the bling bling in the world
we feel Christmas all year long
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

make us smile and make us cry
show us why we need to try
even if our hearts might break
they're fixable with duct tape

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the gift that you bring is
more precious than all the bling bling in the world
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
you give us a sense of wonder
when we're feeling buried under mundane chores
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

This track is one of your

This track is one of your best this year. Happy and positive, but not cheesy. Can't really complain about anything. Love the guitars, the lyrics, the melody and the penguin suit.
