Sat Eye Candy: Christmas '08


Pour something strong into your favorite nog and join JamBase for a heartwarming gathering of some of the oddest, cheeriest stuff we could track down to spark your yule log. Joyeux Noël, brothers and sisters.

If you're looking for a REALLY White Christmas, well search no further than this 1978 holiday episode of the Donny & Marie Show. What the Osmond family does to Sly Stone and The Commodores is just wrong. Nice table dance, Santa!

Here's Kenny & Dolly from 1983 with something to run up your North Pole. Welcome to your future Mrs. Claus fantasies.

During this season, we want to wish everyone a "Happy Life Day." This one goes out to all our Wookies.

While more leather than we like to see during Yule-tide, we forgive him because he's Elvis, and no Christmas is complete without one spin of "Blue Christmas." That's one dynamic face you got there, Presley!

And now a commercial break.

Some truly extraordinary clothing choices await you in this holiday clip from Sonny & Cher. Let Captain Kangaroo's bright red nose lead the way. The Captain's recipe for Christmas cheer? One part egg nog, nine parts rum, three parts barely legal elf.

Roy Wood, the co-founder of The Move and Electric Light Orchestra, has a seasonal fave in the U.K. with his band Wizzard titled "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday." This video is an eyeful directed by someone who thinks the Magical Mystery Tour movie is pure gold. This song resurfaces like some Xmas zombie each winter in England and charted as high as #31 just this year despite having originally shambled out in 1973!

Yeah, we know this one is a bit cliché but it warms our cockles and who can't use a good cockle warming? Without further adieu, Bing Crosby and David Bowie getting' maudlin.

We wrap with John Denver and The Muppets with some curious but deeply felt theology.

Merry Christmas, Everybody. Stay warm and safe!

Don't forget, you can eyeball video sweetness 24/7 with JamBase TV.

We had a similar "compact stereo" when I was a kid. I think my folks bought it with S&H green stamps.
