Musical Advent 2020 – December 24th – The Captain’s Wife’s Lament – Paul and Storm

Paul and Storm are huge favourites amongst the nerd community and this is a very very funny song, and perhaps a little NSFW.

I wasn’t sure how to end this particular advent series, I wanted to end with something funny and Megan’s reaction to this showed me that I had it right!

Musical Advent 2020 – December 22nd – Deadpool Christmas Rap – GameboyJones

Deadpool is a firm favourite superhero of pretty much every nerd, even though he hasn’t really been in the Marvel universe for very long at all.

And the Deadpool film staring Ryan Reynolds really brought the character into public focus, and frankly, who else could be Deadpool other than Mr Reynolds.

Also next year his model is coming out for Crisis Protocol and he looks AMAZING!!!

Musical Advent 2020 – December 21st – Why Does the Sun Really Shine? (The Sun is a Miasma of Incandescent Plasma) – They Might Be Giants

They Might Be Giants are a great example of a mainstream nerdy band, and this song is a follow-up of one of their earlier tracks for their kids album Here Comes Science.

Its only a short one, but very good at the same time, and like all the tracks on that album, is an educational song.

Musical Advent 2020 – December 20th – Tower of Souls – A Sound of Thunder

Sometimes you need a good concept album to really fire those neurons, and this song is from Tales from the Deadside a concept album from A Sound of Thunder.

Its based on the comic book series Shadowman by Valiant Comics, which is very cool and really ought to be read at some point in every nerds life.

This is an excellent track and honestly the vocals can shatter the whole world!

Musical Advent 2020 – December 19th – The Gumbo Song – The Cog Is Dead

We of course had to bring in some steampunk to this list if only to keep Paul happy.

So we will take a pretty iconic song from The Cog is Dead, featuring Professor Elemental who are pretty much the superstars of steampunk music.

Musical Advent 2020 – December 18th – Mario Kart – Aitch

OK this is one that might be stretching the definition of geek music, considering its a chart topping grime artist.

I was first exposed to this guy when Nandos did a live cooking show with him, and I discovered that he is actually a massive video game fan, and this particular track is pretty good, so yeah I decided to include this here.

Musical Advent 2020 – December 17th – Toss a Coin (To Your Witcher) – Mega Ran

Come on we all love Mega Ran, he is one of those nerdcore rappers so talented that pretty much everything he touches turns to gold.

And Toss a Coin (To Your Witcher) is no exception as he takes this pop culture phenomenon from earlier this year and turns it into a rap song that is just so so good!

Musical Advent 2020 – December 16th – Up Up Down Down – Kirby Krackle

A Kirby Krackle is the use of black around a subject to indicate an unknown form of energy, as popularised by the great comic book artist Jack Kirby.

Its also the stage name of an amazing geek music superstar, who has written some amazing songs touching on geek culture, video games, comics and stuff.

This is a really good song, that in the words of Megan, escalates pretty quickly!

Musical Advent 2020 – December 15th – Pizza and Ice Cream – Meri Amber

Meri Amber is this wonderful goofball of a singer from down under who does an amazing job a of creating nerdy pop songs that are just so catchy!

We had a couple of her tracks in last years advent calender, and I really recommend picking up Origin Story as it contains a bunch of amazing songs that are really hard to not sing along to.

This particular song is so very much very me, I mean my bikini body is literally made of candy!

Musical Advent 2020 – December 14th – The Quick and The Blue – The Megas

Megaman is a videogame franchise which is rather beloved and has been going for over 30 years now.

Back in 2013 Capcom commissioned an album to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise, MM25: Mega Man Rocks, and The Megas contributed their song The Quick and The Blue from their Get Equipped album.

This song is about the fight between Quickman and Mega Man from Mega Man 2 and its a really good song, especially the version they rerecorded for MM25.
