I like to listen to holiday music all year round…..except December. December is the worst. What is so special about December anyway? Why should it be the month for holiday music. If I want to listen to It’s a Very Megadeth Christmas (I’m not sure if that is a real album) in July then that is what I will do. That’s right, I’m talking to you broadcast radio and store intercoms. December is not the time to listen to Johnny Mathis or Berl Ives, that’s just weird……Who are those guys anyway?
I may be dreaming of a White Christmas, but I don’t really need to hear it every 3rd song. Also does it really matter if its a white Christmas, isn’t a green Christmas okay or how about a zombie Christmas, that would be awesome! RAHHHhh! Christmas brains. That’s zombie talk in case your were wondering.
Really, I know what you are thinking. This dude is a curmudgeon. Maybe I am, because I have no idea what that even means. Please, don’t explain it to me, I don’t want to know. I’m just a guy who likes to listen to the music that I want to listen to when I want to listen to said music. I like music. I also like to pump my fist in the air and yell, “You darn kids, get off my property.”
Anyway, in case you were interested in some nifty holiday music, the library has a boat load of keen CDs you can check out and listen to at your leisure. I am in no way advocating listening in December but if you must then go right ahead. Be a lemming. Follow the herd. But be wary of Christmas zombies. If you are like me and want to listen during the other months you can do that too! Here are a couple of holiday music CDs that I am advocating …Bright Eyes or Punk goes Christmas.
