Christmas songs should be more modern

Instead of the usual centuries-old songs themed around Santa Claus, reindeers and snowmen, shopping malls should be playing Christmas-themed songs like Kami-sama no Birthday (God's birthday, though a bit of misnomer, but obviously referring to Christmas) (from The Idolm@ster) and holy night magic by fripSide (boy this group rulez) (for the eroge Meri*Chri).

Or even snow-themed songs like White Album and Tears in snow (by Sato Hiromi for true tears) would work well.

Don't bother calling this a blasphemy of the holy night, because flying reindeers never existed in Christian mythology, and Jesus is Latin and his name is pronounced "Yee-sus" (ironically the Chinese pronounced his name more correctly than Englishmen).

The holy Christmas carols still have their place in the untainted churches (Note: Chijmes doesn't count) and sung in Latin. (And actually, some of those songs are nice. And hard definitely) I'm separating this from the western capitalistic commercial bastardisation of the Christmas that we're seeing today - not a day of prayers, but a day of feasting and record Xbox360 and GTA4 sales. And of course, the day when girls turn into women.

What's the whole point of 100 versions of "Jingle Bells" and "Silent Night"? This is not an iPod advertisement.

Or you're telling me that it's cheaper and easier to remix those songs than to write a new one. Says something about the industry.

Similarly, something should be done about the Chinese New Year songs. But knowing it's Chinese, we don't have much hope. Singaporeans tried a few attempts, and all failed miserably as expected. I think the Japanese are actually better at Oriental music than us even though they speak Chinese as though they got rocks in their mouth.

Or how about rock for a national or organisation anthem?

Or how about -

Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war

Disturbed - Indestructible

How's this for a national anthem?

Or this -

Its just one of those days,
Where you don't want to wake up.
Everything is fucked,
Everybody sucks.
You don't really know why,
But you wanna justify,
Rippin someone's head off.

No human contact,
and if you interact,
your life is on contract.
Your best bet is to stay away motherfucker,
It's just one of those days.

Limp Bizkit - Break Stuff

That would be good for a school song. (AJ?)

And the best part of using real songs for event use, is that they still sound nice after the event is over. Hence extending their life and sale value.
