Holiday Song Remix: New Classics We'd Really Like to Hear

Page 4 of 10

Morrissey the Snowman
to the tune of “Frosty the Snowman”

Morrissey the Snowman
Was a pale and morbid soul
He was made of snow
He read Wilde and Poe
And his repartee was droll.

Morrissey the Snowman
Loved to make the children cry
He would moan and sing,
“I can’t wait for spring
And the dreaded sunny day I die.”

The more the children loved him
His Eskimo blood would freeze
He’d sigh and say, “Why pamper
All of life’s complexities?”

Morrissey the Snowman
Finally got his chance to melt
But we heard him say
As he dripped away,
“Now I know how Joan of Arc felt.”

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
