On the 16th day of December, my dealer gave to me….
A Colbert Christmas - Stephen Colbert (with Feist, Toby Keith, Willie Nelson, John Legend, Jon Stewart, and Elvis Costello)
COLBERT, WHY U NO LIKE STREAMING? Sadly, can’t find this album on Spotify/Rdio, just scattered bits around the web. So you can only find…
- (most of) these songs on this Youtube playlist
- Toby Keith’s “Have I got a present for you” on the Colbert Website
> > > (side note: check out the “related videos” for more clips from the special)
- And Colbert’s & Elvis Costello’s “There are much worse things to believe in” on the Hype Machine
Trust me, it’s SO worth clicking these links.
Why so crack-tastic? Colbert is easily one of the greatest gifts the Universe has ever given to us. Here he enlists some of the best singers to cover songs about toking up with Jesus (Willie Nelson), calling the angel hotline (Feist), the war on Christmas (Toby Keith), converting to Judaism (Jon Stewart), and licking “nutmeg” off the “ladle” (John Legend). It’s amazing, you guys. Amazing.
Not your drug of choice?
TOO BAD BECAUSE THIS IS ALL YOU’RE GETTING BECAUSE OF HOW AWESOME IT IS!
(And Celine Dion - Rdio | Spotify )
