Won’t Be Home For Christmas
I know I’ve been MIA this week and need to get back on track with blogging, but I can’t let a Wednesday pass without a music post AND it’s December! I’ve decided that every week during this month I will share my favorite holiday songs with you. I love Christmas music (shocker) and have many favorites.
I love alternative/indie/rock/punk/etc so it’s only fair that I begin with one of my favorite bands. I promise to try to hit all of the genres over the next few weeks, but I had to start with this catchy tune. I’ve listened to Blink since a high school boyfriend introduced the Dude Ranch album to me. If I had to pick my top five favorite bands, Blink would rank pretty close to number one. They were around for a looonnnngg time before their last spat (still hoping they aren’t done for good) and have evolved over the years. If I had to pick my favorite album, it would be a toss up between Dude Ranch or Take off Your Pants and Jacket. Their lyrics always crack me up, and this Christmas song of theirs is no exception. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS but this song really tells it like it is with lyrics like this:
It’s Christmas time again
It’s time to be nice to the people you can’t stand all year
I’m growing tired of all this Christmas cheer
You people scare me
Please stay away from my home
If you don’t wanna get beat down
Just leave the presents and then leave me alone.
Not my personal attitude but it’s really hilarious to listen to. I laugh every single time. I was decorating my tree this weekend with my husband and this one came on. I was absentmindedly singing along and I got to the chorus (above) and he was dying laughing. Gets us every time. I hope you appreciate it as much as I do!
