Well I’m not coming to your house for Xmas!! :O)

Great satirical look at what has become a sad image of what it used to be.

I’m not really that cynical either but how come my neighbor’s right to have an eight foot tall blow-up lighted plastic Christmas scene on their front lawn (that plays music) trumps my right not to have to see or hear it? Guess all I can do is plant more evergreen trees on the property line first thing this spring. And maybe write a song about it. Which you are so good at, and have done again here. (Your song Scrooge remains a favorite of mine.)

I’m so glad you made the blow-up santa into a song… So cool. And yeah, so ridiculous!!! Thanks for your kind words. It’s so nice that you mentioned ‘Scrooge’ as a fav… I’ve been singing similar themes for years, eh?

Let’s face it…. Somewhere in the hustle bustle and tight scheduling, everyone feels this way at least once. Great arrangement and great phrasing. :)

I enjoyed it, it’s very happy! A pleasant song. Congrats for your voice as usual, is beautiful.

I agree about the xmas consumerism. The videos showing crowds assaulting city malls are really creepy… OO (they seems mindless zombies)

I TOTALLY agree! The shopping zombies are terrifying… oooo… that’s a good song… shopping zombies!! Thank you, Mr. DICE. I tried to sound pleasant… I smiled while singing. :)

You are always pleasant. I hope i’m using the right word. I mean it’s a voice that I really like to listen.

Shopping zombies! What a perfect way to name these mall crowds :D
