12 Days of Christmas: Day 4- Analyzing Christmas Songs

day 4

One of the best and worst parts about Christmas is the music. As my dad says, there are about five good holiday songs, now we probably disagree on which songs they are, however all songs have some interesting lines so today I’m going to analyze them.

  • “All I Want for Christmas is You”- I guess you could almost call this a Christmas classic at this point, anyone my age loves and adores this song it seems. “And I’m just gonna keep on waiting Underneath the mistletoe,” well first of all I don’t think her “baby” is coming to be honest, but also if you keep waiting under the mistletoe you are wasting a lot of time. Also ask for some books, or maybe someone that will come see you for Christmas. I do like to jam out to this song though, but I don’t want anyone for Christmas, just some books will do.
  • “Santa Baby”- Now if you ask me, this song is just creepy. First of all, compare this to “All I want for Christmas is You” this lady wants a lot and she wants Santa too! If you asking me she is a tad greedy and a little bit strange. “Santa baby, a ’54 convertible too, light blue; I’ll wait up for you, dear; Santa baby, So hurry down the chimney tonight,” this is just one of the first lines, I mean that’s a little bit strange.
  • “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”- There’s nothing wrong with this song, it just makes me sad. “I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams.” Sad. Sad. Sad. I just want the poor man to be home for Christmas.
  • “Frosty the Snowman”- In general to be quite honest Frosty is just an upsetting story. The Snowman dies and leaves all of his children friends, how depressing! “Frosty the snowman knew the sun was hot that day, So he said, ‘Let’s run and we’ll have some fun now before I melt away'”  That’s a little strange, you have to admit. He was going to die, so come on kids, let go run around! That’s strange.
  • “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”-  This is a fun Christmas song in my opinion.  The only thing that I find a little bit strange about it is the actually “Rockin’ around the Christmas tree” part just because I just picture a bunch of people dancing around the Christmas tree and in my head it looks quite strange.

Analyze your favorite Christmas song in the comments, I would love to see some other ones!

    This post cracks me up (in a good way) ! Okay, let’s see…

    Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer- Elmo and Patsy
    -This song cracks me up and we always listen to it! Ever since I was younger, we listened. It definitely has dark humor to it and since my Grandma died it’s not AS funny, but I still enjoy the song. The words are hilarious and the imagery the song provides is pretty funny as well. Here are the lyrics to the chorus:

    “Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
    Walking home from our house Christmas Eve,
    You can say there’s no such thing as Santa,
    But as for me and Grampa, we believe”

    The songs kind of about what would happen if Santa ran over someone you loved and what would happen. Would you open up her gifts or return them? How would Grandpa react? It’s just a silly song!

    “Senor Santa Clause” by Jim Reeves- It’s pretty much about someone just wanting some money to buy their sweetheart something. It’s kind of sad in a way, kind of thoughtful, and a touch greedy because he seems to think that he needs money to make his girlfriend happy.

    Percy, the Puny Poinsettia- This song is so sad! It’s about a plant that nobody wants because it’s smaller than all the others! However, when a little girl sees the plant, she feels bad for it and wants it! So, there is a happy ending. :) The song pretty much says that no one should be alone for the holidays.

      “Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer” is a perfect example! It’s sung so happily but it’s so sad! I don’t know if I’ve ever heard the other two! “Christmas Shoes” is the saddest song that I just can’t listen to.

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
