Christmas song insanity!

Christmas music drives me crazy. Here's why:

I object to the lyrics of many Christmas songs, and those I don't object to for that reason I've heard so damn many times that I've grown to hate them. Also, even hearing a few words of most Christmas songs will cause Molly to start singing them internally over and over and over and over again ad nauseum and it's hard to get her to stop. Especially since her singing triggers a part of our mind that generates mental noise to keep our energy level up (The Stream), and starts taking up the slack when Molly gets tired. So Christmas music is insanity-making for me, since it fills my head with so much noise that I can't think.

"Jingle Bell Rock," "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree," and "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" being exceptions.

About the only Christmas album of Molly's that we're okay with is "Malin's Jul" (Malin's Yule), an album of a young girl singer named Malin Reitan - one of Molly's favorite singers - singing Christmas songs in her native language, which is Norweigan. It's good, because the words are in Norweigan, which derails any chance of Molly or the Stream to repeat it ad infinitum.

I love "Santa Baby" for some reason despite the fact that it is about a spoiled, materialistic woman. I think it's because I always picture catwoman singing it.

Somewhere around here I have a vinyl album of Julie Andrews singing Christmas carols, circa 1965. Not only is she magnificent, obviously, but she's singing Anglican carols, good old C of E - and while many are the same as ours, some are not; rich, strange melodies I'd never heard before or since.
