🎷 Music League 5 - Billy Corgan is the greatest! 🎷 Round 13 Christmas!! 🎄

Yeah, I love it too, the arrangements sound so timeless. Here Comes Santa is obviously loads of fun, but some lovely stuff on there too - like the pedal steel under The Christmas Song and the contrast between the lushness of the choir and Dylan’s grit on O Little Town Of Bethlehem.

gone with the seasonal spirit and shared points across ten songs

looks like people aren’t getting my not so obscure xmas film reference

Home Alone? Just got it!

Not many people want a happy hardcore Christmas this year


Was unsure whether to stick this in a new thread but didn’t want to clog up the Music Section with Music League threads.

Music League has been my Highlight of 2021, it’s introduced me to so much good music which I’m grateful to you all for & got me to sign up to the forum which has been another highlight of the year.

Anyway to get to the point, I’ve kept a playlist of Music League discoveries which I regularly listen to & I have compiled a chart of my personal favourite Top 30 which follows…

You know I’ve seen hardly any films ever

Exactly why I love it too! Just sounds like an artist having a whale of time and loving every minute of it. Wouldn’t say no to another volume!

Ho ho ho! Just voted.

Didn’t get the chance to make comments but there was plenty I hadn’t heard before. Had a ridiculous playlist of ideas for this round and ended up playing a classic firm favourite.

Cheers to everyone for all the new discoveries this year, it been dead fun! Merry Christmas and wishing you all well for the new year :slightly_smiling_face:


As @Spen78 says Music League has been a great distraction throughout the year. Merry Christmas music league buddies!


There was ultimately only one choice for this round, but sad that none of these popped up:

Blink 182 - Happy Holidays You Bastards
The Flaming Lips - Christmas at the Zoo
Alkaline Trio - Snake Oil Tanker
Jimmy Eat World - 12.23.95
Everclear - Hating You for Christmas

Also you should all be ashamed of yourselves for not taking Music League on a Lohan Holiday.

skip Step Brothers it’s arse

I considered 2 of those, also looked to see if that Everclear cover of Rudulph from the GAP advert was on Spotify. Went with something else though.

Well the number of points I’ve received is not very festive at all

Enjoyed listening to Dylan’s festive record again this afternoon prompted by its inclusion on the playlist. All in a good cause too.

Managed to get my votes in on time too, but that turnaround time is tight! I don’t know how the day 1 & 2 voters manage it each round.

Happy Christmas MLers and thanks Brainfreeze for continuing to host such a fun activity. Much appreciated in an often challenging year! :christmas_tree: :santa:


it’s showing me a different Justin Casablancas song on the voting page than is on the playlist? (but they’re both Christmas songs)

oh never mind, it’s the same song under two different titles

Another power outage, another loss of all comments the night before. Need to stop being so indecisive!
