My wife loves holiday music.
I cannot stress this enough: she loves it like a child loves her dolls. Various radios in our home blast Christmas songs virtually non-stop all season.
These songs make me want to kill myself with a cheese grater.
Basically there are only a handful of Christmas compositions, but they have been covered by everyone from Mariah Carey to The McKenzie Brothers! And some of these songs have been mangled beyond recognition by these “artists”.
Still, there is a large portion of the population that loves to wrap themselves in the trappings of the holiday season and music is an essential part of the ritual.
It just gets sooo annoying at times. I mean. twenty-four hours of this dreck? For months at a time?
Personally, Dan Fogelberg’s Same Old Lang Syne is the only holiday song I truly enjoy, and many would argue it isn’t actually a Christmas song at all.
That’s probably why I like it.
