If this blog were one of the TV shows I grew up watching, you’d see me sitting at a desk rubbing my face and next to the desk would be a waste can surrounded by countless crumpled up pieces of paper. This is the fourth attempt at “something to post on Wednesday, December 14th, 2016”.
It’s mainly a combination of writer’s block and lack of time. Everything I want to write about takes more time than I currently have. Everything else I’ve thought of takes longer to write than I expect, and then ends up a crumpled piece of paper.
But I keep trying, and the more I try the more unhappy I am with the results and the deeper into my mild funk I get.
…Which is all to say that it’s not outside the realm of possibility that my posting schedule could get a bit spotty in the near future. Fret not, dear readers, I’m not going anywhere.
One thing that’s not helping are the tired bits of Christmas music that are everywhere right now. I’m not going to name names, but these songs don’t fill me with holiday cheer, peace on Earth and good will towards men. No, they fill me with “Aw, jeez, can’t you play something different?”
So with that in mind, I’ll share a Christmas song that isn’t one that you’ll hear in your local retail shopping destination…
The Fab Four are a Beatles tribute band who came up with a great way to make an album. They recorded a number of holiday songs using arrangements of Beatles songs… In this case, they’re performing “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” in the style of “Help!”. It sounds a bit strange, but hey, it works.
In the Shlabotnik household, this is what we call Christmas music. Hopefully this makes up for the less-than-upbeat tone of this post.
