On Friday night, Jimmy Fallon revived his "Bottom of the Charts" segment for a special holiday edition. Just as he did on the segment that aired on October 22nd, Fallon begins by listing the top three songs on the chart (only this time it's the Holiday 100 instead of the Hot 100), and then proceeds to invent those ranked 98, 99 and 100, respectively.
Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and a surprising amount of snakes, the holiday "songs" occupying the nether regions of the chart sharply contrast with the chart-topping likes of Bing Crosby and Mariah Carey. Were it not for Danny Elfman's amazing musical contributions to The Nightmare Before Christmas, you might expect the soundtrack of that grimly-titled film to contain some of the aural lumps of coal that Fallon shares with us. Thankfully, these three tracks will probably never see the light of day again.
Watch the October 22nd edition of Fallon's "Bottom of the Charts," and check out the all-star cover of The Pogues' "Fairytale of New York" that Fallon recently hosted.
