Oh, Christmas and its inescapable songs. The holiday that was all-too-perfect for a capitalist nation has grown into an oppressive force, gobbling up everything in its path. It started, innocently enough, with December 24th being turned into Christmas Eve, but soon the entire month of December was under control of ol’ Saint Nick. Not satisfied there, the borders of Christmas have since expanded even further, taking over everything from the second Thanksgiving ends. And all the while we hear the echoes of this holiest day, building until only the merriest can take it anymore. Yes, as the Grinch said, Christmas music sure can be annoying. We dig through all that bell-heavy noise this week, hoping to find at least 10 truly great Xmas jams. Anyway, we’re taking a break next week, so you’ve got time to really savor this one, or catch up if you’ve fallen behind. Unless you believe the apocalypse is tomorrow, in which case, you’re going to have a lot of shopping to do come Saturday.
