* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Some of them are already down, and lots aren't technically christmas season songs, but this thread got me to start building my own playlist (so far the ordering is just a draft, I'll get it done before I have to visit people)

Oh, I could do this for hours.

That is to say, not explicitly Christian OR played to death saccharine department store muzak. Ha.

Any suggestions?

Well, my perception may be skewed because I absolutely adore mainstream, traditional Christmas music but I very much enjoy Pearl Bailey's "Five Pound Box of Money" which I don't believe is too common.

Castus is listening to Bing Crosby cover "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" as he writes this...

I should clarify I'm not anti-Christian or anti-traditional regarding Christmas music I've just worked retail way to freakin' long and would prefer not to listen to music that makes me cringe and remember Black Friday horrors....

*is really really glad to do digital customer service now*

Billy Idol's "Yelling at the  Christmas  Tree".  It's  off the wall,  quirky,  some may say offensive  and work UNSAFE  but I  rather like it.

 Another  Christmas  song  I  like  is " Little  Drummer  Boy/ Peace  on  Earth"  by  David  Bowie  and  Bing  Crosby.

I  apologise for the lack of linkage  but  I'm on my phone and it doesn't want to cooperate with me  on  finding,  copying and pasting  the  links.

Discouraged, but not destroyed, I rise.

Hrm.  I like the religious music.

 
I like a lot of it, especially medieval stuff.  I have a special weakness for Bring a Torch, Jeannette, Isabella.  Especially in French.

I like the Nutcracker music for this time of year.  And 'Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer'.  Only because I wasn't too fond of one of mine and it would be the one thing I'd ask Santa for when I was little :/
