With the Holiday Season now upon us, it’s important to talk about one of the best parts of said season: Christmas music. For something that seems so harmless and mundane, it often sparks a lot of debate every year around this time. However the debate is far more than just whether it is good or not. Often, part of the debate is when it should start being played and what actually consists of good Christmas music.
Now I’m not picky when it comes to Christmas music because honestly, this is my favorite time of year and the music has a lot to do with that. Despite that though, there is a few things that I don’t like about it. More specifically, how many times singers remake the same exact songs over and over again.
With any other type of music, it wouldn’t be acceptable to just remake the same songs over and over again right? I mean, sure there are some classics that are great songs and it seems like a good idea to just remake them but it needs to stop. I don’t want to hear a hundred different versions of Santa Clause is coming to town in an hour. It’s not like you see everyone remaking Bohemian Rhapsody or Hey Jude once a year.
At the same time though, most newer Christmas songs are not very good. This may have something to do with the fact that most singers only seem to release their own Christmas music when their careers are in a down spin.
Maybe I’m just a snob for the classics. I was raised on mostly Perry Como Christmas music after all.
One thing that I’m usually criticized for is when I start listening to it. I know for most of you, the rule is after Thanksgiving. However, I’m more of an after Halloween kind of girl. Maybe two whole months of Christmas music seems like a lot but not for me.
What do you think about Christmas music? Do you like the remakes? Are you a pre-Thanksgiving Christmas music lover too? I love talking about it so tweet me your opinions!
