Silent Night... I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus... Have a Holly Jolly Christmas... Alvin, Simon and Theodore... Little Saint Nick... The Little Drummer Boy... White Christmas... Joy to the World... Blue Christmas Without You... Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas... Enough already!
It could be a long month ahead...
We're still a day shy of December and I've already had my fill of what's playing and passing for music on the radio, on television and in stores and restaurants.
I don't want to hear seasonal music every time I turn on the radio.
When I walk through Macy's doors, I don't want to hear hymns I'll sing walking in the entrance procession at Midnight Mass.
I don't want to hear monks or chipmunks while I'm having dinner in a good restaurant.
I have a real problem with legitimate Christmas music backing up advertising.
These inescapable sounds don't help me "get into the season" because the season I'm trying to get into is Advent, not Christmas.
What are your thoughts on the timing of all these tinseled tunes?
Call me a geek or a Grinch - doesn't both me! Didn't expect to change a thing by posting this. Just wanted to get it off my chest.
(If you agree, there's a widget on the sidebar with some tunes that have a better fix on the season at hand.)
