TUNES THAT WOULD NEED CHANGING…
In my previous submission “WHY CAN'T “CHRISTMAS” BE CALLED “CHRISTMAS?”, I referenced the ludicrous and ridiculousness of deliberately disregarding recognition of the day and season for what it really is: the celebration of the Savior of the world – Jesus Christ.
As I further contemplated this complete and utter foolishness of calling “Christmas” a “Holiday” (an unexplained one at that…) I began to think of all the tunes and songs that would require lyrical changes, if this foolishness were to continue until it manifested itself into total and irreversible stupidity..
Nat “King” Cole’s classic
rendition of “The Christmas Song” would have to be renamed “The “
Bing Crosby’s timeless
recording of “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” would now be “I’m Dreaming of
a White “
Elvis Pressley’s “Blue
Christmas” would end up as a “Blue “
“We Wish You a Merry
Christmas” would become “We Wish You a Merry “
That’s sad because the truth
of the matter is that shepherds on the outskirts of
I will continue to celebrate and call the “holiday” what it actually and truly is: Christmas!
In that respect alone, I will not be changing my tune.
Sing it, Nat…”Merry Christmas to you!”
