The curse of Yuletide Radio is upon us, and so far I have worked diligently to avoid it: I’ve even taken to threading the MP3 Walkman into the car stereo via one of those fake-cassette gizmos.
The major beef I have with it is that when you play nothing but 24/7 Christmas music, you have to play EVERYTHING ever recorded. So along with good stuff, you get the poppy trash that comes out every year. And you never get to hear the more churchy songs since it is on the radio and we don’t want to offend anyone.
This would seem to fall a little short of EVERYTHING, but I know what she means. And this in particular rings true:
[N]ow I’ll have “Feliz Navidad” stuck in my head all day long…
The Doors should have covered that, as payback to José Feliciano for his take on “Light My Fire.”
