We love Xmas songs as much as the next guy (especially that classic Phil Spector collection), and we think we've found our new favorite. It happens to be by our favorite young (har har) playwright/provocateur, Young Jean Lee, and our buddy/her beau Tim Simmonds. It also happens to have all the qualities that make for a great Xmas song: sleigh bells, sardonic wit, deadpan delivery, hand claps, a Sergio Leone reference, and a sax solo!
"I'm Spending Christmas Alone" by Future Wife (Young Jean Lee and Tim Simmonds)
I’m Spending Christmas Alone is the first of several new songs from Future Wife we will release in the coming months, leading up to the April 2011 premiere of ONE-WOMAN SHOW (written and performed by Young Jean Lee, with music by Future Wife, produced as P#11 by 13P in collaboration with YJLTC) at Joe's Pub.
Young Jean Lee's "UNTITLED FEMINIST MULTIMEDIA TECHNOLOGY SHOW" continues tonight through Sunday at the New Museum.
