A Very Special OTD X-Mas: the Click 5, DJ Ayres

. . . Five golden rings . . .

1. We've said it before, we'll say it again: the Click Five are the Monkees/Dave Clark Five version of what we always thought Waltham should be. Case in point: their meticulously-crafted Christmas single, atomically engineered to steer teens from MySpace to the mall . . .

"I got a cell phone, trampoline, a year's worth of magazine
I even got a new pair of chucks
I got a surfboard, swimming pool, a Mustang convertible
Still I didn't get enough

I got everything I wanted on my list
Except for one thing that I missed
(Just a kiss)

My girlfriend forgot me this Christmas day . . .

I got her earrings, chocolate, spa gift certificates
Waited a couple hours in line
I got her makeup, teddy bears, even bought her underwear
Now I'm down to my last dime

She got everything she wanted on her list
Except for one thing that she missed
(Just a kiss)
My girlfriend forgot me this Christmas day . . ."

2. In the spirit of the above song, OTD finished our X-mas shopping yesterday, cued up the iPod, and promptly got smacked with the following song, which was probably not intended as a Christmas song but will work just fine as a seasonal corrective, or perhaps as just good advice for those of us who've overspent on credit. To wit: "If you ain't got no money, take your broke ass home." Ostensibly this is the Rub's DJ Ayres having his way with Gwen and Ludacris, but really it's in a league of its own. (Via Catchdubs, we think: it was a while ago. Check him pronto for more X-mas goodies.)
