Post Christmas Weirdness
I'm looking for Christmas music.

I came across this album and I couldn't help but ask myself a few questions when I saw its page.


http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/magnat ... d277109863


Why are they all labeled as having "Clean" lyrics? Are there explicit lyrics for these classics and where can I find them? :P

Also, why did listeners also buy the soundtrack to Black Hawk Down in addition to this album? What kind of weirdo associates Christmas music with a war film?

Again, I just couldn't help myself from thinking of these questions.

The Blackhawk Down thing feels to me like someone who buys music as background filler. Kinda sad, if true. :shake:

The "clean" labels are a violation of Apple Style Guidelines. That's only supposed to be used if there is a corresponding "explicit" version. But we work with a few religious-leaning folks who always seemed compelled to switch that on, no matter what. I finally had to remove it from our web app (where they enter their own product info pre-iTunes upload). Now it's just blank or explicit. I figure in the rare case where we do have an explicit product, we can do a manual override.

I found the "Clean" labels thing to be pretty funny nonetheless.

Speaking of Christmas music, I found an album with incredibly beautiful choral arrangements which is exactly what I'm looking for: either traditional choral songs or classic recordings:

Sublimely beautiful with its elegant simplicity.

It's not marked 'clean', though. Are you sure The Sixteen won't blurt out some choice expletives halfway through Good King Wenceslas?

I'll let you know after I listen in a bit.

Damn that's funny!
