Blink-182's 'Boxing Day'

Blink-182 have released "Boxing Day," the first cut off their upcoming EP Dogs Eating Dogs, which the band will independently release on December 18th. The tender, mid-tempo acoustic track (which you can hear below) is miles from Blink's goofy and lewd yuletide classic "Happy Holidays, You Bastard," but "Boxing Day" doesn't skimp on catchy hooks and sing-along choruses.

"This EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods, because we're all in a room together," drummer Travis Barker told Rolling Stone earlier this month. "The rule is there's no rules. 

Dogs Eating Dogs will be available in three different holiday bundles, which you can pre-order on Blink-182's site now: A "Santa's Lap Package," which will come with a special poster, t-shirt, holiday wrapping paper and card; the "Nice Package," which includes a special fleece, holiday wrapping and card; and the "Naughty Package," which comes with a shirt and card.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
