NOISE | The Weight
Looking to listen to holiday music today, but already "fatigued" from the classic tunes (uh oh), I wanted something not totally off topic, but also not anything you'd here in any retail establishment in America right now. The Weight by The Band makes the perfect fake Christmas song. I mean, it is about a traveler's visit to Nazareth (ok, Nazareth, PA., but still the name of Jesus' hometown), which means it's practically Deck The Halls. And the real gift is the 1976 version from The Last Waltz which features the Staple Singers sitting in.
