A Treat for the Ears. Or something.

I am sick today, so you get a reblog. It’s the time of year when all the radio stations and shipping malls are regaling you with Christmas tunes, anyway, so I’m not that early. Heck, Hallmark has their ornament premiere in July, so I might even be a little late. Anyway, enjoy.

Becoming Cliche

Everybody has a list. Here’s mine, in no particular order.

Christmas Shoes – This has to be the sappiest song ever written. And it makes no sense. A kid’s mom is terminally ill, so his dad lets him wander away from the hospital with maybe thirty-five cents in his pocket (okay, I made that number up.

It’s horrible.

  2. Gah, it was IMPOSSIBLE to get here via the reader, it kept taking me to the other post WHICH I HAVE ALREADY READ MORE THAN ONCE.

    I had to click on the home page, then come to the comments. Bluh.

    Feel better soon, my friend. ❤

  3. I love every Christmas song going. Even ‘Christmas Tree’ by Dustin the Turkey! Perhaps its just an Irish thing but I get so blinded by the joys of Christmas I cant see what is good and bad 🙂

A penny for your thoughts! And by penny, I mean a warm-fuzzy in your heart.
