National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (Thanks Leland!)



I'd like to thank Leland for contributing this album to the blog. Apparently there was never an official release to this soundtrack when the movie came out. This is actually from a special 10th Anniversary edition that was limited to 20,000 CDs. The album is a combination of songs, incidental music, and dialogue from the movie. I do want to warn you about some language cautions on the dialogue, though. But if you've seen the movie, you should know what to expect. Leland's going to send me a scan of the front cover, but I wanted to go ahead and get this on the blog before Christmas gets here! ;-D (As soon as I get it, I'll add it to this blog entry.) Enjoy!
UPDATE: I found a picture of the front cover. It's not part of the file, so you'll have to save it separately.

Here's the track list:

1. Christmas Vacation (cartoon version) – Mavis Staples
2. Take it Russ…
3. Hey, Santa Claus – The Moonglows
4. Clark’s *sskiss Remark
5. That Spirit of Christmas – Ray Charles
6. Sh****r Was Full
7. Christmas Vacation Medley – Angelo Badalamenti
8. Aunt Bethany’s Arrival
9. Hallelujah Chorus – The Oratorio Society of New York
10. Feeding the Dog at the Table
11. Mele Kalikimaka – Bing Crosby
12. Clark Explodes
13. Here Comes Santa Claus – Gene Autry
14. Eddie’s Gift
15. Joy to the World – Angelo Badalamenti
16. Hell’s Threshold
17. Christmas Vacation (end credits version) – Mavis Staples

A little late, but thank you very, very much for this masterpiece!

By the way, the cover version of "Holiday Road" isn't performed by Limp Bizkit. The name of the band is just "Limp". Maybe this is helpful to someone...
