Quantcast

125litaIt's been over 30 years since LITA FORD and CHERIE CURRIE last performed together as members of the iconic group, THE RUNAWAYS. In fact, the last time these two recorded new music together, the original STAR WARS was still in theaters - 1977. Fast-forward to 2013, and Ford thought that "the world could use a new Christmas song," and that song just so happened to become a duet with her old friend and former bandmate. Released today, "Rock This Christmas Down" is potentially the first in a series of collaborations between these former RUNAWAYS, and one that lands as Day 3 in my annual 25 Days of Xmas here on The Rock Father. 

Having been originally released back in 2005, MY LITTLE PONY: A VERY MINTY CHRISTMAS is a movie that my wife and I missed the first time around - coming long after our own childhood, but about four years prior to us becoming parents ourselves. Released on DVD by Shout! Factory Kids for 2013 as part of their MY LITTLE PONY "Classic Movies" Collection, I sat down to watch it with my four-year-old daughter, and today it makes my annual 25 Days of Xmas countdown here on The Rock Father.

THE ROCK FATHERTo kick-off 25 Days of Xmas 2013 here on The Rock Father, it's only fitting that we get off to a swingin' start with a band that I've been following since the mid-1990s - an outfit that my wife and I have seen live many times, and one that has been providing part of our seasonal soundtrack for over a decade: BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY. For 2013 they've released their third foray into the Holiday Music realm following their 1997 WATCHU' WANT FOR CHRISTMAS EP and 2004's full-length, EVERYTHING YOU WANT FOR CHRISTMAS. On IT FEELS LIKE CHRISTMAS TIME (Savoy Jazz), BBVD delivers a fat bag of sonic presents that are bound to put a smile on your face, and warm the hearts of even the coldest Scrooge or meanest Grinch. And, they've released a trio of music videos to go along with it. Let's take a look, starting with the excellent title track...
