I know that I missed my post yesterday, but this post will be a combination of yesterday’s and today’s… Hopefully that makes up for it a bit.
Anyways, today is Tradition (or is it Traditional) Tuesday. Being that it is the ‘Christmas Season’ the television companies have decided to bombard us with millions of Christmas or holiday-themed movies. It’s not all bad.
The reason that it’s not all bad is basically because they broadcast some amazing movies with incredible frequency. One of those movies is my family’s instant Christmas classic, Elf. It used to be, and still sometimes is, that we would watch A Christmas Story without fail during the holiday season. Now, it is always Elf. I have not, nor will I, forget the amazing movie with the frozen pole, the red rider bebe gun, and the classic words, “You’ll shoot your eye out!” However, I am just so in love with the movie Elf that I can’t give the title of Best Christmas Movie to anyone else.
You may disagree with me, and I know many do, but Elf never gets old. Will Ferrell’s child-like portrayal of the confused elf-man that is Buddy will live on in infamy. I will forever quote lines from this movie whether it is December or August, and I will always feel that Will Ferrell’s facial expressions are just priceless and unmatchable.
One other thing that I’d like to say about Elf, before you get too annoyed with my ranting and raving, is that it has, in my opinion, the best Christmas movie soundtrack ever! I jest not when I say it surprises me how much I like it. I mean, in all honesty, I’m not a huge Christmas music person. I mean, I like it, but only in very specific states, like when Bob Dylan is singing it. However, this soundtrack has no Bob Dylan, but it has lots of other amazing people.
So, here are my favorites from the soundtrack.. And if you haven’t watched Elf, you should. In my opinion. Also, if you have watched it and you haven’t heard or payed attention to the soundtrack, you should watch it again and listen carefully. I haven’t really noticed it as much as I feel I should have, until recently, but I’m glad I finally have taken notice. I mean, it’s worth noticing.
My only complaint is that this next song is on the soundtrack with someone other than Will Ferrel singing. Sad.
