Most of you, probably get annoyed by Christmas music, on the radio, in the office, being played 24/7. Wouldn’t it suck if there was a Christmas music radio station that played nothing but Christmas music all year long? And wouldn’t it be really messed up if your boss was raised by elves and he kept the radio on that station all year long? Yeah, the though that its not like that, is what gets me through this season at the office. Although I hate the music, I’m thankful that my boss wasn’t raised by an Amish elf with a weight problem on a reindeer farm.

My favorite Christmas song (on the radio) is a classic. Come to think of it, they’re all classics. But my favorite song every year is “Feliz Navidad”. I don’t know who sings it but I know its done by a Mexican dude. A pretty nice Mexican dude I might add. Hell, he saw it fit to sing and record the song in part Spanish and part English — he was probably really trynna get a green card when he did that. For a long time I didn’t know what Feliz Navidad meant. Actually, every time I heard it, I thought he was saying…”RELEASE NAVIDAD”.

Yup, I thought it was a song about a locked up Mexican dude named Navidad. I thought it was pretty cool how the dude who sung it remembered his friend at Christmas. Not many people think about people in jail at Christmas time, so I thought this song was cool as hell. I mean, he wanted his friend released from jail for Christmas, and I’m sure everybody in jail around Christmas time wishes they were at home with their families. A few years ago at work this lady actually told me what the words of the song really meant. But, I still hold on to the idea of Navidad being released for Christmas every time I hear it.

You’d think by now, since Christmas is like 2000yrs old (at least) somebody would invent some new Christmas songs. New lyrics instead of the same old stuff we hear every year. If that happened, it would make for an interesting Christmas radio season. Actually, they should do that and have like a Grammy Award category for just Christmas music. That alone should motivate a few artists out there. Hell, they’d all be dropping Christmas albums with all new material, instead of the same old bullshit.

Every year, some loser artist makes a Christmas album, and I often wonder who buys that crap (yeah Brian McKnight, what the fuck?!). I mean, duh, we already know the songs, and there’s only so many ways that they can change it up anyway! Lets be real, its not like its the Star Spangled Banner ya know. That’s the only song thats everybody knows that has a Pdiddy remix. If the Grammy’s had a Christmas category that crap would stop, and we’d have new Christmas music every year, and we’d be happy instead of irritated by the idiot in the office who walks around singing the same songs and spreading holiday cheer. However, I doubt that would ever happen. Instead, we’re stuck with life as we know it in the office with stupid, repetitive Christmas songs. I’m just glad that Santa Clause doesn’t “Superman Dat Hoe”. I’d have to kill myself if that happened.

Merry Christmas folks
