A plague of musical proportions is upon us!
Well, Halloween has come and gone, which means it's ChristmaHannuKwanzakuhgiving according to the would of retail. If you doubt me, just walk into any Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree or Target, you'll be bowled over by boughs of holly!
And please, don't get me wrong, I'm no grinch, I love Christmas: Baby Jesus is the subject of my first book, my love is legit! It's available on Amazon, check it out!
What I can't stand is the onslaught of Christmas/Holiday music! And it's not all of them, I can deal with 13 versions of Silent Night, tho' The Temptations version is just over 6 minutes of #blackexcellence. And sleigh bells don't exist until I hear Donny's This Christmas - #GOAT (not debatable).
But what I can't abide are the cries for help masquerading as holiday cheer! I will argue this point to the Supreme Court: adding the word Christmas to a song does not make it a Christmas song.
I repeat for the people in the cheap seats: SAYING THE WORD CHRISTMAS IN THE LYRICS DOES NOT A CHRISTMAS SONG MAKE!
