I like Christmas and the holiday season. I’m normal in that regard. Sure, there are things I don’t like about it; but it always instills a nice, cold, dreamy mood in me that has hasn’t deluded itself since my formative years. I do not, however, enjoy Christmas music. Carols, hymns; all of it strikes a weird chord with me. Mostly, it is either far too cheery or far too unintentionally creepy. “Fa la la la la la la la la?” What the hell is that? I’m not trying to be a “grinch” here, but, seriously, shut the hell up already.
Nonetheless, there are several choice songs that I will hum along to (sometimes without even noticing) if they are playing in a department store, a mall, or (God forbid) at work. There nothing obscure or hard to find. Just the run of the mill stuff you’ll hear every day. The following venture is largely due to Todd’s urging, and his assholian nature while dehumanizing my end of the year music plans. So, I’ve decided to compile a small list of Christmas and holiday tunes that you may hear around this time of year that won’t give you a tooth ache or make you vomit in the process.
04. Let It Snow
03. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
02. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Stay tuned for my Top 15 Albums of 2007 in the very near future.
Until then, I wish you a very (late) Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
