song of the day. #14

song of the day.

This is my 14th song of the day post and already my third Coldplay song. I didn’t plan it this way… they just keep sneaking in.

I cannot listen to Christmas music all day long. Not without pulling a Van Gogh and cutting off an ear. Or two. At the most, I enjoy maybe three or four frequently-played holiday songs. And even those, not fifty times a damn day! Fuck, if I hear (shudder) Mariah Carey (shudder) one more time, I am going to become violent. I cannot even stomach her once.

But… this is a holiday song I like. It’s lovely… and it has just the right amount of sadness and angst to totally work for me. Plus, Coldplay.

I do wonder if I will ever enjoy the holiday season again. There are obvious circumstances fucking things up this year, but I haven’t looked forward to nor enjoyed the holidays for a few years. Maybe someday some brilliant scientist will figure out what the hell is wrong with me…

When you’re still waiting for the snow to fall
Doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all

    Lol! I’ve been known to listen to Christmas music in July on a dedicated internet radio station but don’t anyone! I’ll need to checkout Coldplay ’cause I did notice they are a fav of yours!😊

    • I know I’m a total Scrooge… just too much badness in my life right now… I can’t seem to escape it. And I used to have a friend where I worked who played Christmas music all day every day for at least a month before Christmas. It was torture. Maybe sure ruined me for Christmas music?

      I have a few music obsessions… Coldplay is one… 🙂

  2. I’m more traditional with holiday music but we listen all the time from Thanksgiving to Christmas. No matter what, I can usually get in the Christmas spirit. My mom said I was always like that from the time I was little 😉

    Love Coldplay. And I think I’m even a bigger Scrooge than you. I haven’t listened to a single Christmas song all week.

  4. I love Coldplay too. Yellow came out when my oldest was born and was playing constantly. It became her song (to us). So many good songs. I, for one, do not mind all your Coldplay Songs of the Day. Smiles. I hope you find peace in your heart this season. Know that you have ‘strangers in the ether’ who are rooting for you. xx
