"Dan Phillips," yes — but SO not me

If I ever did do a Christmas album, this wouldn't be it.

For some reason I couldn't escape the thought that this would have been a great song for 48 Hours (with Eddie Murphy) had it been a Christmas movie.

I don't know Dan that "Sleigh Ride" with its techno-beat and that pseudo Marilyn Manson sound he may have something there. I may have to download these and play them at the next office party.

You're not a Depeche Mode fan?

Dude, after watching your photo essay on the Christmas Eve Pizza Bake, I actually would believe you could be the master of the electronic vibraphone!

This is a rendition from one of Tears For Fears song? I really liked them when I was younger. It brought back memories.

wow Dan Phillips the song writer....hmmm, could be a hit! :P
that White Christmas song...wow..what can I say...so 80's...ok I'll stop now..hopefully thats not the kind of album you'd ever make!

You got that right, sister. And that "Do You Hear What I Hear" rendition is so techno, I remember dancing to that kind of music in one of my elementary/middle school dances! (No, of course it wasn't a Christian school!)

And that "Jingles Are Jingles"--what an disappointment. I was waiting for some clever lyrics that would parody Depeche Mode's "People Are People"--instead, there's only some banging that reminded me the intro of the original song....

ah didn't hear those two..instead I heard the other ones, the ones he says are influenced by Peter Gabriel and Kate something...that Scattering of You song was pretty sad..very Peter Gabriel.
