Jason: There has been no thinking going on since December 1st. You’ve been doing something, I know. But it’s not thinking.
Jeff: I mean, the holidays are for everyone, right? People of all nationalities. All creeds. And yet we seem to cover only English-speaking artists during Mellowmas, for the most part.
This seems like an oversight.
Jeff: They were okay. But I think we can do more. The 21st century is all about diversity!
Jason: How about this: First, tell me the language. Then I’ll tell you yes or no.
…I don’t know?
Jason: That’s good enough for me. No.
Jeff: What language is “An dem Tag (Eine Frohe Weihnacht)”? That’s German, right? You love German stuff.
Jason: “What what What (What What What)”?
Jeff: Hey, really, I have no idea. But Wolfgang C. Gmoser is feeling GOOD about whatever he’s singing.
Jason: A typo, Jeff! That last name is missing a vowel.
Jeff: Which vowel do you speak of?
Jason: Pick one. Any one.
Jeff: Ha ha ha ha ha! Do I get to put a funny line through it?
Jason: You can put your balls through it for all I care.
Jeff: That might be what “An dem Tag” means.
Jason: You seem really excited. I should stop bursting your bubble. I’m ready to listen to Wolfgang C. Gmoser.
Jeff: Also, from now on I’m going to scream “WEIHNACHT” at my kids at random intervals.
Jason: That’s fine, but if one screams back VERGISSMEINNICHT, you pretty much have to crown them ruler of the house.
Jason: Wow, that album cover!
Jeff: The cover is AMAZING. Oh, this is tasteful. And vaguely David Foster-ish.
Jason: …is this Terje?
Jeff: Terje would have designed a much better cover! How dare you.
Jason: That’s true. Also, he’s not German. Sorry, Terje.
Jeff: You know, at this point during Mellowmas, I’m totally okay with not having any idea what the lyrics mean.
Jason: Yeah, me too. I just feel more…sensitive, somehow. Also, where can I buy you that scarf? I feel like it’d go really well with your Liberace vest.
Jeff: Is that a scarf? I thought it was melted Gummi bears.
Jason: Why do I feel like out of all the songs we listen to this season, this is the only one I’m going to remember?
Jeff: Please sing this around the house.
Wolfgang knows how to sing harmony with himself, which is nice. He also knows how to compose a chorus.
Jason: How can he look so happy when he has pine cones so close to his crotch?
Jeff: The cover is so small on my screen that I thought those were tulips!
Jason: Speaking of tulips so close to a crotch, say hi to your mother for me.
