I love Christmas, and I love Christmas music. In fact, I’ve been listening to a radio station that plays nothing but Christmas music since the week before Thanksgiving. They pretty much play the same songs everyday (sometimes twice a day, and what’s up with that? I know there’s more Christmas music available), but that’s not what I’m writing to complain about (at least not this time). No, feel the need to publish a great frustration that I feel every year at this time towards one Christmas song in particular. It’s an overplayed, annoying Christmas song, but that’s not my complaint either. Are you ready? The song is Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and my problem is the intro:
You know Dasher and Dancer, and Prancer and Vixen,Comet and Cupid, and
Donner and Blitzen, But do you recall, the most famous reindeer of all?
I can’t stand it!! If Rudolph is “the most famous reindeer of all,” how could he possibly be the one we would forget? Isn’t it far more likely that we would “not recall” Donner, or Comet? If a song doesn’t make sense, I think it should be banned from radio play. That would mean no more Backstreet Boys (or is it N’SYNC) song about how he can do what he wants, but she can’t (okay, I know that’s vague but I’m talking about a specific song, and if you know what it is, put in the comments), no more Christina Aguilara’s What a Girl Wants saying “whatever makes me happy sets you free” (how does that work?), and most importantly, no more Rudolph!! Or at the very least, cut the intro, please!!!
