CIVL Station Manager Aaron Levy was requested/challenged by UFV Cascade editors to rise to this week’s challenge, and he kinda 50/50’s it.
Jeremy Allingham — “Bring Those Presents To Me”
The most CBC of all Fraser Valley Music Awards applicants OR nominees, possibly because he actually works for the CBC, where he publishes salient and meaningful articles on a variety of topics, he also recorded this Christmas-themed millennial ditty to remind you of what the holiday season is for.
Truman Proudfoot and David Kandal — “Vampire Christmas”
David and Truman, Truman and David: they’re a sweet, lovable pair of local Abbotsfordians, one of whom used to play in the Replacements-fashioned The Hot Moonbeams, as well as the much louder and more Vancouver-based Owl Skowl, both of whom have played at Jam in Jubilee’s After Dark series.
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings — “8 Days of Hanukkah”
Already shuffled, methinks, which doesn’t preclude my interest in talking about it again, because it’s NOT a Christmas tune; something UFV Cascade editor Martin Castro is hoping can be developed further to chronicle ALL of the non-Christmas related holiday songs, like those for Kwanzaa, Tet, AND Hanukkah as well!
Adam Sandler — “Hanukkah Song”
Adam Sandler loves singing about farts, trying to pick up women, and a buttload of other identifiable or otherwise disagreeable traits, activities, past times, or circumstances that some, none, or all of us may or may not connect with at any given time. Hanukkah was another of them.
