  • Episode 260: You Dont Have to Spend the Holidays with Wisecracking Robots

    Episode 260: You Don't Have to Spend the Holidays with Wisecracking Robots

    06/05/2020 Duração: 45min

    It's time once again for some listener requests! In this episode we dig into two tracks from Christian alt-rock label Tooth & Nail's Happy Christmas compilation series. First, we interpret the meaning of the mumbled chorus of Starflyer 59's "A Holiday Song" and then make a pro/con list on Lost Dogs' robot-heavy rendition of "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)". Thank you to Jay for these requests!

  • Episode 259: Twas the Night Before Weed Day

    Episode 259: Twas the Night Before Weed Day

    22/04/2020 Duração: 47min

    This episode may come out a few days after April 20th, but good news! It's still April 2020, so it's 4/20 for another week and a half! Stay safe, smoke responsibly, and enjoy our takes on these two reefer-fueled holiday tunes - "Do You Wanna Hit My Vape Pen?" by MC Flow and "Twas the Night" by Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg. This week's ranking music is "Pot in the Latkes" by MC Flow.

  • Episode 258: Shiny Happy Mi Yimalel

    Episode 258: Shiny Happy Mi Yimalel

    08/04/2020 Duração: 37min

    In honor of Easter and Passover, we're covering Christmas and Hanukkah songs that are on the more traditional, religious side. "Joy to the World" performed by Nat King Cole bring nostalgic joy, while "Mi Yimalel Too!" by Julie Silver may sound like a sequel, but is more akin to a retelling. Our ranking music this week is "Chad Gadya" performed by Jack Black.

  • Episode 257: Yelly Belly

    Episode 257: Yelly Belly

    25/03/2020 Duração: 44min

    April Fools' Day is on the horizon - not that anyone should be celebrating it, in this of all years. For what may be the worst of holidays, we listen to two jokes of songs - some old-fashioned parody songs, by listener request. "The 12 Gifts of Christmas" by Allan Sherman may be a so-so version of an overdone song, but it does deliver one very welcome holiday music innovation. "I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas" by Yogi Yorgesson, however, is yust a mess. Our ranking music this episode is "A Christmas Carol" by Tom Lehrer. Thank you to Matt and Tim for these requests!

    Bonus Content: Our 2017 album roundup

    20/03/2020 Duração: 01h10min

    While Ian works to finish editing our long-delayed roundup of holiday albums released in 2019 for our Patreon patrons, we thought we'd share some extra content here in our main feed for those of you looking for listening material during these days of self-isolation. Please enjoy this artifact of a simpler time: Our 2017 Patreon album roundup. Stay safe everyone, and happy holidays!

  • Episode 256: Ghosts, Trolls, and Sinatras

    Episode 256: Ghosts, Trolls, and Sinatras

    11/03/2020 Duração: 50min

    Can you believe we've covered 500 songs, and only one by Old Blue Eyes? In honor of St. Joseph's Day, we're covering two songs by an Italian-American icon. First is the slightly spooky "The Christmas Waltz" by Frank Sinatra, followed by "The 12 Days of Christmas" by the Sinatra family, which reimagines the interminable classic as a list of extremely generic Dad Gift ideas. Maybe dad likes... jelly??   Our ranking music this episode is "Christmas Memories" by Billy Gilman!

  • Episode 255: Me and Mrs. Claus

    Episode 255: Me and Mrs. Claus

    26/02/2020 Duração: 44min

    In honour of International Women's Day on March 8, in this episode we're covering requests for songs about the much-neglected first lady of Christmas, Mrs. Claus. First, we revisit the Mrs. Santa Claus musical with a sweet duet titled "The Best Christmas Of All". Then we discuss the implications of Mrs. Claus gettin' some from a side piece in "Dear Mrs. Claus" by the Barr Brothers. Thank you to Joe and Meghan for these requests! Our ranking music this week is "Mrs. Santa Claus" by Nat King Cole.

  • Episode 254: Three Generations Doing High-Kicks All at Once

    Episode 254: Three Generations Doing High-Kicks All at Once

    12/02/2020 Duração: 35min

    This week on HARK, we're celebrating two holidays with just one set of requests. Notable interesting person Richard submitted a decidedly non-standard version of "Baby It's Cold Outside," performed by Jimmy Pardo and Scott Aukerman, which we're covering for ... Valentine's Day(?). He also submitted "3 Generations" by Hawksley Workman, which definitely fits a Family Day theme. Thanks again, Richard, for the requests! This week's ranking music is "A House or Maybe a Boat" by Hawksley Workman.

  • Episode 253: Deconstructed Christmas with Gabber Sauce

    Episode 253: Deconstructed Christmas with Gabber Sauce

    29/01/2020 Duração: 47min

    This week's HARK is a veritable feast for the ears, though some parts of it likely go down more easily than others. We start with "Sick Christmas" by (DJ) The Prophet, a bottom-shooter apologetically requested by Alan. Then, we pair it with a high quality jam of our own choosing: "Sleigh Ride" by Astrocolor, which also serves as this week's ranking music. Thanks again to Alan for the request!

  • Episode 252: Recursive Christmas Tree Farms

    Episode 252: Recursive Christmas Tree Farms

    15/01/2020 Duração: 46min

    For our first episode recorded in 2020, we're covering two songs from 2019! Get your HOT TAKES here! "Like It's Christmas" by the Jonas Brothers is nothing and "Christmas Tree Farm" by Taylor Swift is something, but not much. Thanks to Dave for these requests! This week's ranking music is also "Christmas Tree Farm" by Taylor Swift, but just the good part.

  • Episode 251: Ground Control to Santa Claus

    Episode 251: Ground Control to Santa Claus

    01/01/2020 Duração: 42min

    It's 2020 and we're looking back 20 years at some quintessentially 2000 holiday songs!"Xtina's Xmas" by Christina Aguilera and "My Only Wish (This Year)" by Britney Spears both feature superstar performers and some strange formatting choices in their titles, but which one will fare better on our list? And which one is, you know, an actual song?

  • Episode 250: Shoutable Milestones

    Episode 250: Shoutable Milestones

    25/12/2019 Duração: 01h12min

    Happy Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a very merry milestone episode! RJ tries to top our festive list with a holiday classic that almost wasn't a Christmas song, while Ian shoots for the bottom of the list by getting back to basics. We end this episode with an announcement about the future of HARK! The ranking music this week is "What Christmas Means to Me" by Stevie Wonder.

  • Episode 249: A Very Specific Number of Days

    Episode 249: A Very Specific Number of Days

    18/12/2019 Duração: 42min

    The holiday equinox of 2019 is upon us, beginning with the first night of Hanukkah on December 22nd. To celebrate, we're listening to two high-quality Hanukkah songs. "Chanukah Time" by Josh and the Jamtones is a fun song that captures a child-like excitement about the holiday, while "This Chanukiah" by Daniel Cainer takes a more heartfelt, reflective approach. This week's ranking music is "Christmas Wrapping" by Save Ferris.

  • Episode 248: Old Jims Christmas Podcast

    Episode 248: Old Jim's Christmas Podcast

    11/12/2019 Duração: 46min

    RJ and Ian are back from Tokyo and celebrating their jet-lag with songs from decades that have never been featured on the show before. First, 1898's "Sleigh Ride Party/Jingle Bells" by the Edison Male Quartet becomes the oldest song we've every talked about on the show by several decades, while also proving that there is no such thing as a "standard" version of Jingle Bells. Then, 1904's "Old Jim's Christmas Hymn" by Albert C. Campbell and James F. Harrison provides a much more moving story than we expected given the goofy title. This week's ranking music is "Swingin' Them Jingle Bells" by Fats Waller.

  • Episode 247: Opposite Temperatures Attract

    Episode 247: Opposite Temperatures Attract

    04/12/2019 Duração: 38min

    We're still in Japan, celebrating our anniversary, and this episode is all about love! I mean, and holiday music, because that's the show. Two winter love songs help us mark the occasion - "Love In December" by Club 8 and "Warm In December" by Julie London. This week's ranking music is "Sea Urchins" by Yo La Tengo.

  • Episode 246: Japanese Christmas Experience

    Episode 246: Japanese Christmas Experience

    27/11/2019 Duração: 40min

    Greetings from Japan! We recorded this episode early because we're currently on our long-anticipated vacation in Tokyo, and we picked songs to suit the occasion. We journey from Canada to Japan with "Last Christmas (English/Japanese Version)" by Gunnarolla featuring Micaela Braithwaite and then just have a real nice time - you know, it's just nice - with "Sweet Christmas" by Shonen Knife. This week's ranking music is "Party Hard" by Andrew WK, and this episode also features clips of "Canon in D (Pachelbel's Canon)" performed by Marnie and Patrick Laird and "Triangle Foods" by Gunnarolla.

  • Episode 245: Here We Come A-Podcasting

    Episode 245: Here We Come A-Podcasting

    20/11/2019 Duração: 36min

    Knock knock! In this week's episode, we celebrate the ancient tradition of wassailing with two listener requests - "Here We Come A-Wassailing" as performed by Kate Rusby and "The Wassailing Song" as performed by Blur. This episode's ranking music is "Here We Come A-Caroling" as performed by the Sesame Street gang. Thank you to Liam for these requests!

  • Episode 244: It Sure Doesnt Feliz Like Navidad

    Episode 244: It Sure Doesn't Feliz Like Navidad

    13/11/2019 Duração: 36min

    This week, we tackle a pair of punk-adjacent requests from listener Kevin. "Feliz Navi-nada" by El Vez is, despite the title, a joyful reimagining of the Jose Feliciano original, and "X'mas Time (It Sure Doesn't Feel Like It)" by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones is an extremely sad and also surprisingly nostalgic experience. The ranking music this week is "The Impression That I Get" by the aforementioned Bosstones. Thanks again to Kevin for the requests!

  • Episode 243: Underneath the Birthday Lights

    Episode 243: Underneath the Birthday Lights

    06/11/2019 Duração: 42min

    IT'S RJ'S BIRTHDAY AND THEY'LL ALL-CAPS IF THEY WANT TO That's right, it's Birthday Boi's Choice once again, and RJ has selected two songs that we've discussed before... but only behind a paywall. John Legend's 2018 original "Bring Me Love" is a strong contender for a new Christmas radio standard, and Sia's 2017 album closer "Underneath the Christmas Lights" is an ethereal experience to savor. DO NOT @ US

  • Episode 242: Troubling Pumpkins

    Episode 242: Troubling Pumpkins

    30/10/2019 Duração: 45min

    RJ and Ian are back, and just in time for Halloween! This week, in our annual spooky episode, we tackle our first Halloween winter song (and also revisit the world of Homestar Runner) with "Decomposing Pumpkins" by Brainkrieg. Then, we discuss "It's Halloween (A Christmas Song)" by Randy Brooks, as well as the troubling revelation that the man responsible for bringing "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" into the world might also be funny sometimes, the implications of which we're not even remotely prepared to consider.  This week's ranking music was "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr. and the special intro and outro music was "I Put a Spell on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins.
