    12 Songs of Christmas, BONUS: Worst Christmas Song Ever – Christmas Shoes

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. Except today. Today is about the most horrific Christmas song of all time.  Christmas Shoes is the most horrible, un-Christian Christmas song of all time. Not only is…

    12 Songs of Christmas: Happy Xmas

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. Not much to say about this. People seem to love it or hate it, and since its on my list you can assume where I fall. It’s corny,…

    12 Songs of Christmas: Snoopy’s Christmas

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. I feel the title of this song is a little misleading. It is not a story of a Snoopy helping Woodstock find the true meaning of Christmas, or…

    12 Songs of Christmas: St. Stephen’s Day Murders

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. Because we have reached the point of the holiday season where we all dream of murdering our more annoying relatives. Or is that just me? Anyway, Elvis Costello…

    12 Songs of Christmas: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. A classic. It has been argued that one of the reasons that Christianity spread through the Roman Empire where other mystery cults struggled was that Christianity offered a…

    12 Songs of Christmas: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. Today’s song cannot really be called a Christmas song, but the fact that it is perfectly American. Baby, It’s Cold Outside is a song of seduction. It can be…

    12 Songs of Christmas: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. This song single-handedly made a mediocre movie (Meet Me in St. Louis) a classic. It, and Judy Garland’s performance of it, are that good. I suspect that the…

    12 Songs of Christmas: Fairytale of New York

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. Some of the lyrics in this song have not aged well — I hope that “You sum bag you maggot/you cheap lousy f*ggot” if written today would keep…

    12 Songs of Christmas: Little Drummer Boy

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. Okay, this is a very mawkish song. And okay, there are very few good versions of this. Everyone seems to want to lean into the pathos of it…

  • 12 Songs of Christmas: Run, Run, Rudolph

    12 Songs of Christmas: Run, Run, Rudolph

    Each day until Christmas, I am going to write briefly about a Christmas song I enjoy. Because I can, that’s why. And I an unabashed corny dork. This song is high energy, fast paced, and I am convinced that Chuck Berry has no idea what the actual story of Rudolph actually is. The lyrics bear…
