The Perfect Christmas Song.

I posted this one last year. I think it may have come out last year, which would have made it contemporaneous. Then.

This year it is history, but the gods honest truth is that on this Christmas morning this song once again sums up for me my feelings about life and holiday and family and fucking friends and family dying of cancer and thankfully sometimes miraculously surviving, in what seems to me an incredibly catchy and lucid and honest way.

Your mileage may vary, but for me Tracy Thorn nails it, and makes me grieve with joy. What could be more generous and wiser than that?

  1. I have the contrary feelings about Christmas, not just because I think I am contrary by nature.

    I love the ideas of people being in a generous and festive mood, along with the coziness being inside with a fire and old movies and music. And cooking and eating and spending time with people you love.

    I hate the self righteousness of the part of the christian community that claims some inherent right to have nativity scenes on public lands and considers it anti-Christian and part of the war on Christmas (which only exists in their heads). and, I hate the horrible commercialism and notion that you are obligated to spend money/buy gifts. blah blah blah.

    I guess that is why Run Run Rudolf and Rockin’ Around the Xmas Tree are the songs I gravitate to.
