Tunes I Like: “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” by Barenaked Ladies & Sarah McLachlan

People give me crazy looks when I try to explain this song for them, so don’t worry, I’ll be able to picture your expressions while you read this.

This song is a mashup of “God Rest” and “We Three Kings,” sung by the extremely odd duo of the ranbunctious Barenaked Ladies and the tearjerky Sarah McLachlan.  It’s pretty much awesome.

  1. Why do people need this explained? I thought everyone knew this version of the song?

    Now, The Rocket Scientist gives me crazy looks when I play it, but that’s only because he hates Sarah McLachlan. So, of course, I play it often.

    • Oh wow, really? I can’t remember how I came across this song, but yeah, almost everyone I talk to thinks it sounds like the weirdest song ever. You gotta admit, BNL with Sarah McLachlan does sound like an odd combination. Frankly, BNL singing Christmas carols sounds like an odd combination!

      But seriously, this song totally rocks and the whole world should hear it.
