Those who know me even vaguely probably won't be surprised to learn that I'm kind of a Scrooge McDuck when it comes to holiday songs. It was just the other day that I was driving with my roommate, listening to Detroit's premier peddler of Holiday "cheer", 100.3 WNIC. Shocked at my grinch-ly attitude, she asked me, aghast, "What's better to make you forget how cold it is outside other than a doo wop group singing Christmas songs?!"
So, as a rebuttal, I have prepared a list of five things that are better than a doo wop group singing Christmas songs...
- The sobs of one thousand colick-y infants.
- Foxes engaging in sexual intercourse.
- Kesha... Oh, I'm sorry, I meant "Ke$ha".
- People with lung cancer coughing.
- And, finally, a doo wop group NOT singing Christmas songs.
Okay, maybe that's a little harsh but it gets my point across, right? Christmas music can suck it. But, that being said, even my "Bah Humbug" heart can't help but be warmed by Detroit natives The Kickstand Band taking on Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer's "There's Always Tomorrow".
JUST LISTEN TO IT! From start to finish, that song is so damn cute that not only do I want to cuddle their cutie pie lead singer but I just want to cry because I did not think that much "adorable" could be packed into two minutes. You know when the Grinch's heart grew three times in size from Christmas cheer? Well, thanks to The Kickstand Band, that's what just happened to me.
