I've been working on my English essay all morning (I FINISHED IT!) and listening to Christmas music. So here's a break down of a few Christmas songs that I just really don't get.
"Do They Know It's Christmas?"- Ok. A band called Band-Aid did this song. It's really stupid and rather illogical, honestly. They're talking about how there will be no snow in Africa this Christmas and Do they know it's Christmas at all? Actually, no, they probably don't because a majority of Africa is Muslim and if there WERE snow in Africa, they would probably flip out.
"Christmas Shoes"- De. Press. Ing. Ugh. This little boy is buying shoes for his mom who is dying. Ruins the Christmas mood. However, if you need to watch a great movie that will make you bawl like a baby, watch the movie version of it. Really great movie, with Kimberly Willaims-Paisley and Rob Lowe in it. I watched it this week. Cried like a baby.
"Santa Baby"- If you aren't Eartha Kitt, please don't remake this song. I really hate remakes in general, but there really aren't many who can pull this song off without making it sound really..err...yeah, we won't go there.
