    Each record is painted on one side and plays two NSPS holiday classics on the other side: "Santa Hat" featuring Deni Bonet and "Shouldn't Start on Christmas.

    The price is high because each disk was separately recorded via lathe, so each has a unique recording and paint job. (Don't worry — we won't actually make any money! ;-) ) Note that these lathe-cuts are not high-fidelity, but scratchy, mono recordings. That's all part of the fun.

HIM: Put on your Santa hat And don't worry about the rest Then come meet me in the kitchen to bake out a Christmas fest I will knead and roll your dough And then cut out a soft embrace You can eat my snickerdoodle I'll wipe cinnamon from your face Oh baby Santa hat Put on your Santa hat HER: Put on your Santa hat And that's all you need to wear When we go erect your Christmas tree And we trim it with great flare My sweets will make your stocking bulge Over my chimney so warm In my closet I have games to play While we're snowed-in by the storm Oh baby Santa Hat Put on your Santa hat They say when the year reaches its end That you should be near your special friend So this is the time to make that hold true And this is the time for me to show you That "All Through the Night" is not just a carol And we don't need much Christmas apparel If you obey the mistletoe No matter which way it will go Yeah Mistletoe HIM: Put on your Santa hat It's the greatest time of year HER: The greatest time to kneel down And remind us why we're here HIM: Take the one you love to hold And really hold them dear HER: Let's make every day like Christmas, Come and fill me with great cheer Oh baby Santa hat Put on your Santa hat

If I took cocaine I might be more in touch with my surroundings And this Capra film might move with magic once again But I don't snort drugs, and you shouldn't start on Christmas Because the holidays are just to bridge the gap from now to then If we get too numb, we won't feel the snow freezing our limbs off But it's difficult to concentrate all of the time Because the path's snowed over, and you can't clear it on Christmas We'll stay in, stay warm and listen to iced-over chimes For the season we'll pretend that we do not give in to anger We'll dust off the songs and tell the world just how we feel Because we always fight, but you shouldn't start on Christmas Every year the world should take a month or two to rest and heal

Janean 02:44
Janean shaves the ice and she offers you a snow cone That is made from all the syrups, but it’s not a suicide And the sun shines upon her, then the storm clouds push and split it But it really doesn’t matter, ’cause it’s still there when it hides And everyone complains about the hot summer weather And everyone whines often when it’s cold Janean warms the milk and she offers you hot chocolate That is really some strange mocha, but you drink it anyway And the snow falls upon her, but she’s got a nice warm hat on So it weighs down all the branches as it brightens up the day And everyone rejoices for the warm, summer weather And everyone plays outside in the snow And everyone complains and then rejoices for the weather And for some reason it never quite gets old

Well Christmas has carols And monkeys have barrels And that's how it always will be Till the world grows hazy And we all go crazy And then we will just have to see How it all pans out in the long run Will the year changing, change you and me? Will we find meaning before the world's gone Or should we just go get some tea? I said it was a joke But I was just kidding I meant it with sincerity But if I always spoke The words I was thinking They'd learn of my insanity What will it feel like when the wind blows? Will I get happy when I get old? Will I insist on wearing the same clothes Or will I adjust to the cold? How will it pan out in the long run? Will the year changing, change you and me? Will we find meaning before the world's gone Or should we just go get some tea?

The Snow 02:50
The day the snow came It covered all the great white roses of the garden That are leaving for the great beyond, but they don’t belong there They belong stranded on this planet, providing beauty Until the snow melts and it drowns us to start a new thing

about

We can't do our annual holiday show this year, so we decided to bring you all some festive songs in recorded form. Enjoy!

In addition to the original songs, we recorded covers of some of our favorite holiday songs. If you aren't familiar with them, be sure to check out the original renditions by Withered Hand, Captain Sensible, They Might Be Giants and The Pogues.
