A quick dig around the Weird Wide Web and you can come across dozens of weird and wacky Christmas themed albums. It seems every man and his dog have recorded a Christmas album at some point in their music career. Splicing the holiday season with any number of other themes. Yesterday I posted about the infamous Star Wars Christmas Album from 1980, and it got me thinking.
What other weird Christmas themed albums are there out there? The first one that came to mind, which is in my collection was Tim Dinkins Christmas On The Moon, originally released in 1969, at the height of the space race. A bizarre hill-billy / country spaced-out offering.
There appears to be plenty of spaced out tracks, that seamlessly blend Christmas with sci-fi and outer-space. How about the 45 single from 1961, Space Age Santa Claus? Or maybe Zoot Zoot Here Comes Santa In His New Space Suit by Tiny Tim from 1981? Delving even deeper into the genre, there's the short track a weirdly indescribable I Want A OC192 For Christmas/The 12 Days Of Christmas, which will blow your mind in just over a minute and a half. Almost as long as it takes to read and try to understand the title. Note: Listening to the track will only confuse you more.
