Christmas Music

Ok, is it only me or have all the words changed on our old classic carols? I was just shopping a few days ago, and as per me, I started singing along with the soundtrack in the store. It was a classic Christmas carol, but done by a newer artist, and so I started to sing my usual harmony part...

Well, much to my dismay, the words were not the same!! I had to stop shopping and listen as someone totally destroyed a classic Christmas carol with new lyrics! Wait a minute, is this allowed? What is the world coming to, when we can't sing a carol and know the normal words anymore? Should we be checking up on line every year to see what the new lyrics are before we go out to do our holiday shopping?

How is the normal person supposed to harmonize and sing along as they shop?

Well, I was outraged and it ruined my whole Christmas shopping experience. I had to leave immediately, go into my car, take some deep breaths, and turn on my Carpenter's Christmas album to calm down.

Some things THEY can't touch!

I agree whole-heartedly. Listening to the radio this time of year can be a very painful experience. Not only bad covers of classic carols, but how about those horrible, sappy, utterly un-Christmasy new holiday songs. "Last Christmas, I gave you my heart..." is the worst song EVER to ride the airwaves.

I agree that I also hate those new artists doing Christmas songs. I can't STAND that Mariah Carey one and those genre, where they sing all around the melody, but hardly ever on it!!
