Halloween is over—Thanks Be to God.
Now the stores will start running a loop of synthesized Christmas music through the overhead speakers. Over and over. Shoppers will unknowingly be inspired to shop “in the spirit of the season”. Or perhaps, they will quickly shop simply to escape the store ; their decision making skills will be affected by the thoroughly slaughtered versions of old favorites, and junk will fly off the shelves.
I would like to propose a new Christmas song.
When my oldest daughter was about four years old, she would ask for everything and anything she saw. We almost always said “no” and told her that she could not have everything she saw. (She really hated when we did that.)
So here is my suggestion for a new Christmas classic:
Yes, I know.
We sang only the chorus to our four year old. So edit the rest out and burn the chorus into the store music, and I think it could be acceptable.
Note: Do you know how many YouTube videos of Rolling Stones with Mick Jaggers singing this song exist? Culling through them was like watching a time continuum, with Mick and the band aging visually.
It is a Saturday and this somehow hung in my mind until I put it into a blog post. As John Gray@ Going Gently would say: Hey-ho.
