Swedish psych rock (and slightly electronic) outfit the Soundtrack of our Lives are currently working on the follow up to 2005's Origins Vol 1, which, if you're familiar with it, blew your mind I'm sure [Update: just got a note this morning (Thurs) that the album will be available sometime this spring). They're going to announce a US tour soon and will also make a stop at SXSW in March. In the meantime, they've recorded a mellow, melancholy and slightly ironic Christmas song. Stream it and read along with the lyrics below.
Everybody hit the mall again with the piper / Better hurry cause it´s Christmas time in my head
Gonna buy to everyone I can with the piper / Santa is coming and I think I´m seeing red
Here´s a present for you I saw it on youtube / With the the extras on and the making of the songs
And you know the set was really hard to get / It´s a limited edition and your copy was the last they had... / Everybody hit the mall again with the piper / Better hurry cause it´s christmas time my friend
Gonna fill another empty life with the piper / Shopoholics are anonymous again
Here comes Santa Clause / An old man I suppose / Jump into his lap - don´t mind if he´s too fat
Tell him that you´ve been good / As good as Robin Hood / If your wish come true this package is for you... / Only you... / (Old fashioned solo-singalong part makes Ric Ocasek happy)
Everybody hit the mall again with the piper / Better hurry cause it´s christmas time in my head
Gonna smoke up all my stash again with my piper / Santa is coming and I´m waiting here in my bed
Here´s a present for you / If the past is all you do / With the extras on and the things that turned out wrong / So you better be good / While I´m knockin´ on heavens wood / May your wish come true ´cause I wrote this song for you... / For you...
