Its almost Thansgiving-so I guess this weekend the holiday tunes will finally hit the airwaves. I know some people can’t wait for this, but I have never been a big fan of Christmas music. I’m really not. I like the traditional Christmas hymns, but 50 versions of Jingle Bell Rock just about kill me. I never listen to the radio during Christmas time. They play the same 3 Christmas songs over, and over, and over. And one of those songs is always the one about the Christmas Shoes and the little boy whose momma is dying and he wants her to have some nice shoes in case she “goes to meet Jesus tonight.”
I know that song is supposed to be nice and sweet or whatever, but i groan everytime it comes on.
So, I just never listen to Christmas Music, unless it comes from one of these three albums:
- The Chipmunks
- Amy Grant Christmas
- Kenny Rogers Christmas
I know this just shows how nerdy I am. Forgive me, thanks.
so you know what I think of all the 500 new Christmas albums I see are coming out this year? How about “We wish you a Metal Christmas” thats been advertised so heavily? etc etc etc? I think they’re stupid. There aren’t any original songs on them. Theres really nothing Christmas-y about them…I guess its just another chance to have a big jam-fest and make a couple bucks. I don’t really understand why a band would want to regurgitate a song that has been done 100 times already, just so they can stamp their name on it and add it to the list. I would much rather they use that studio time and energy to make an original record.
Just my thoughts.
