In case you missed yesterday's XKCD:



*SPOILERS*

None of these are in the musical Advent calendar.

*END SPOILERS*

Songs that ARE in the musical Advent calendar range from 15th 13th century (some may be earlier for all I know per an annotation on my sheet music for "Emmanuel") up to, um, last year. I pat myself on the back. I also feel very geeky that I bothered to make a spreadsheet with this data.

I find myself curious about the methodology. Does he include covers of the songs? Or just one specific version? Because I see maybe one or two songs on there that specifically is associated with one artist.

It wouldn't be the first time he played silly buggers.

Yes, I would like to see the methodology myself, or at least the data set! (Aha, the forums (http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=77490) have ID'd the source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_songs#Most-performed_Christmas_songs_.28USA.29 )
