To enjoy the holiday music I do not have to be particularly religious, nor do I have to be a cowboy to enjoy country music or into rave parties to enjoy trance music. I see people of different faiths gather and listen to children carol in our facility. This is a beautiful sight and at times it reminds me of "Glee" when I see the older school children sing their solos.
At home we listen to non-traditional holiday songs from Reliant K, Justin Bieber and Dr. Demento. My wife made a CD for us to listen to at work that included some traditional songs and some that should be. Run-DMC's "Christmas in Hollis" reminds me of the time I lived in Omaha with all the snow and days off from school, and it should be part of the traditional holiday music. It is in our home anyway. I tried to find "Santa's Rap" from the movie "Beat Street" but was unsuccessful. If anyone has any leads let me know; I'd like that song on CD.
And since I am unable to carry a tune, I tend to hum and spittle (and make up lyrics if I don't know what is said) with the songs I listen to on the way to work. Some day you will see that on YouTube, but not this year. Have a great holiday everyone.
