Song Of The Day 12/25/2013: Dies Irae - "Silent Night"


Holiday Barrage 2013: I felt that for Christmas day itself, you fans deserved no less than the most elaborate and inexplicable Christmas carol I could possibly provide. So I Googled "prog christmas." This is one of the results I got. I suppose it's prog, but you real proggers out there are free to say whether it's not. It's a pasted-together rock reinterpretation of a Christmas standard that somehow allows room for a couple of harmonica segments. I did not see those coming. But this recording does give a certain sense of the gravitas, power, and mutually assured destruction that the holidays should provide, so I'm good with it. Merry Christmas, and have a great time with your PlayStations and puffer jackets this afternoon.
