We’re almost at the end, my friends. Only one more of these dumb things after today. So I guess we should take our time with this one since it’s the second to last christmas song shared (for this year). Or we just do this and see how long it’ll become. Fuck it, let’s do this.
The song I chose for this day is one I have wanted to use for quite some time but knew would fit better near the end of it all. It is “The Season’s Upon Us” by Dropkick Murphys. As the song starts it sounds a lot like your typical happy christmas song, but as it goes on it gets meaner and meaner while also giving us a bit of insight into the most dysfunctional family of all time. In the song we hear about how the narrator (as I call him) hates his family and don’t want to celebrate the holiday with them. He hates his sisters, he thinks their husbands are losers (and so are their sons) and there is even a bit of child abuse in there as well. And all of it, combined with the video makes for one of the most hilarious christmas things ever. The video is funny, the lyrics are funny and honestly, the overall composition of the music is superb. This is a really great christmas song that I love to listen to and that is why I shared it.
