Fall Equinox - Less Than 40 Days

Woot, woot.  Fall is here.  And that means we're less than 40 days away from the big day when we can ensconce our homes in Christmas music.   And yes, the trees are turning.  And there's pumpkin spice everywhere.  And even some of the retailers (I'm looking at you, Costco!) have Christmas stuff up and on the shelves.  But we still need to stand pat.  Don't turn on the music yet, folks. 

Check out the official "Can I Listen to Christmas Music?" countdown clock here or embedded below.

Despite This Matthew Broderick Christmas Story News, It Still Isn't Time for X-Mas Music

From Variety, we find out that they've cast Matthew Broderick in the narrator voice for the upcoming "Live" Christmas Story performance that Fox is putting on this season.  From the story: Matthew Broderick has signed on for the role of the adult Ralphie narrator in Fo’s live staging of a musical based on the beloved 1983 film “A Christmas Story.”  ... Broderick will take on the voice-over work handled in the film by Jean Shepherd, the late humorist and radio host who wrote the 1966 short story that inspired in the movie. ... Broderick is no stranger to the stage. He has two Tonys under his belt and a long list of credits ranging from “Brighton Beach Memoirs” to “The Producers” to most recently “It’s Only a Play.” His past TV credits include guest shots on “30 Rock” and “Modern Family.” We don't care if you love this or hate this (we love it!).  Still doesn't change things.  No Christmas music just yet.

Sorry, Folks: Sia Doesn't Change Things

News today in Rolling Stone is that enigmatic 'star' Sia is coming out with a Christmas record.  Of original songs.  But, fortunately, it isn't coming out until later this year.  When we all know listening to Christmas music is more appropriate.
Sia announced plans on Tuesday to record her first Christmas album. The LP will be her first release through Atlantic Records – a new home for the singer after a pair of successful albums with RCA.

All the songs on Sia's Christmas LP will be originals composed with help from Greg Kurstin. Kurstin, an in-demand Top 40 savant (Adele, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson), previously worked with Sia on her last three albums and served as producer or co-producer on the singer's biggest solo hits: "Cheap Thrills," "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart." Originals?  Really?  I guess that's courageous, right? Based on her career, we should give it the benefit of the doubt, right?

There's no word yet if we a…

Christmas Story Musical Coming To Fox This Holiday Season

It may be Spring, but in Hollywood there's news involving Christmas music.  It seems that Fox has greenlit the Christmas Story musical to be shown 'live' on the network in December.  This being a Christmas Music-related project, we have to point out that while we adore the movie....music and songs aren't something that jump out to us.  So, there's good news here for X-mas music fans:  we bet that we'll be getting some new songs into the canon of Christmas tunes once this show goes from stage to primetime.

From Variety:
A Christmas Story” will be the subject of the next live musical at Fox, Variety has learned.  The production, which will air this December, will be based on the Broadway musical version of the beloved film of the same name, about a Midwestern boy named Ralphie who wants nothing more than a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. The film has achieved cult status since its release in 1983, with TBS annually airing a 24-hour marathon of the film during th…
