I saw a thing on Satan on the History channel yesterday and, let me tell you, he sounds like one chump dude. He did all sorts of bad shit, and for the life of me, I don't know why someone would be into him. He's a bit of a clown, really. But, I ran into two songs that fit nicely together in that they both name drop the burn out in a Christmas song. Blasphemy to some I've no doubt, but really, if you were religious, would a song make you switch sides?
The first one is James Chance's "Christmast With Satan" and it's fairly typical jerky no wave jazz that takes a full minute or two to get going, but it's about ten minutes long so you have a good eight minutes of Chance ripping Christmas licks here and there. The other song by Spinal Tap, "Christmas With the Devil" (addressing him by his street name) is their trademark mildly humorous fake metal crap. Can you imagine Chance, going to Satan's Christmas party expecting to see it filled with aging NY hipsters in his crowd, and ending up at a party hanging with Spinal Tap. "Shit, this really is hell..."
