Day 392 – Last Christmas

December 1, 2009

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart.
But the very next day, you gave it away.
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

25 years ago, Wham! released the song “Last Christmas”¬†as the B side of “Everything She Wants.” Both are excellent 80’s songs. I’m a fan of the pop era. Since then, hundreds of bands and solo acts have covered the song, something¬†on the order of a dozen per year. The lyrics and the melody are pretty basic, one being a little too close to Barry Manilow’s “Can’t Smile Without You.”

If you turn on one of the stations in your area playing Christmas music, (I have 3-4) you’re likely to hear one of the versions of “Last Christmas” come up fairly quickly.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Christmas. In some cases it’s a saccharine love song or the repetition of a movie about a 10-year-old boy getting a BB gun, but it’s there. It’s good to remember in the midst of this culture war, that the ridiculous malcontents waging it against Judeo-Christian values are still using external measures (lawsuits) instead of changing the attitudes of Americans.

This country is still a majority of sanity. Mostly people became complacent over the years, but they know what’s right. We’ve learned in history that people can lose their freedom over disinterest. That may be the largest impact of media, keeping people on their fat asses on the couch instead of doing something.

Let’s hope we’ll do more for our country this Christmas than last Christmas.
