If you can write a Christmas song that people fall in love with and make a part of their holiday traditions, you can count on a big fat royalty check every January. Dean Martin's "Baby It's Cold Outside" is in the Top 10 right now. It's no wonder countless songwriters have attempted to capture the magic of Christmas through song.
Most Christmas songs are forgettable. Others stay with you for all the wrong reasons.
"An Old Fashioned Christmas (Daddy's Home)" was recorded in 1975. It's an absolute yuletide horror show. Is it worse than "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" or "The Christmas Shoes"? Oh, man. SO MUCH WORSE. I refuse to sugarcoat it. This one is going to hurt. There's a bus plunge and everyone dies, guys. And that means...NO PRESENTS!
Merry Christmas! Listen at your own peril.
