Joe Iconis: "Christmastime" (Aimee Mann and Michael Penn). The gang and I perform many of my favorite Christmas songs in our show. This one is a bit too down-in-the-dumps for our spirited celebration, but I do love it so. So sad, so beautiful, it sounds like A Very Wristcutter's Christmas to me. The line "And on the tree all the ornaments go/Tinsel will cover where the branches don't grow" is worth the price of admission.
