There was a great piece on the radio a week ago where the reporter interviewed retail employees on their view of Christmas music.
Apparently if you work 12-hour days, Christmas music gets a little less – well – jolly.
On one man’s hit list was the Little Drummer Boy.
I have been listening to Christmas music since November. I realize I, too, have a Christmas music hit list.
Santa Baby. I hate this song because it screams commercialism. If you want something from Tiffany’s, buy it yourself. Santa shouldn’t be bringing you that or a car in baby blue. However, it has a catchy tune.
Oh Christmas Tree. Speed it up, people.
First Day of Christmas. Apparently it will cost more than $900,000 to purchase everything from maids a milking to a partridge in a pear tree. The reason? The cost of gold is going up.
I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. This song makes this list not because I don’t like it, but because it makes me nervous.
Do They Know It’s Christmas. I also like this song but can some please explain this line: ‘So tonight thank god it’s them, instead of you’?
Is it just me or is that really awful?
