Things that tick me off Thursday
So now that Christmas is over, I think I can safely post this little rant that I have about Christmas music.
I hate those stupid cutesy songs that aren’t really Christmassy. Songs like “Jingle Bell Rock”, or one of the many tacky variations of “The 12 Days of Christmas” (extra evil if you modify that song to advertise whatever crap you’re selling as though the original isn’t tedious enough on it’s own), or “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas”…the list goes on, but my patience wears thin. I guess I tend more toward the traditional carols myself, in moderation. I don’t need Christmas music 24/7 from Halloween until Christmas day. Really. And I’m pretty sure that no one else does either.
Also, traditional carols? They really need a group of people–like say, a choir–to do them justice. So while I’m well aware that <insert music star name here> has talent, their version of _______ carol just falls flat. I might consider Elvis to be an exception to this…sort of…or maybe not. It depends on my mood, I guess?
So, while I’m sure you’ll disagree with me, it feels better to get that off my chest. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, no matter how you celebrated, and my next post will be a Top 5 of 2012, so be waiting anxiously for that, because there will be mention of a certain project you haven’t seen yet….
