Music Advent day 15

I'm behind on both Music Advent and Holidailies, now. But as Christmas gets closer I feel less and less guilty about that.

Anyway, I was watching MTP Daily on MSNBC and Chuck Todd said, seemingly just out of the blue, "Give us any chance we'll take it, give us any rule we'll break it" - and I thought, "Oh, thanks for the earworm, Chuck!" But then it caused me to remember this version.


(I hadn't heard when I posted this about Penny Marshall dying; it doesn't seem like that could just be a coincidence, though. I think they must have said it and I just missed that part at the time.)

Ha! My thoughts exactly. I heard that Pentatonix Hallelujah (which I love) on the Hallmark Songs of the Season channel on Sirius/XM and actually googled the lyrics to see if I was hearing things. That's a CHRISTMAS song? Tied you to her kitchen chair? Broke your throne and cut your hair? I'm not seeing it. Sean says one of the elements of a Christmas song, aside from snow, is the word Hallelujah. I mean, Let It Snow? That could be any day of Winter, not just the holiday season. But I'm hearing so many songs I'm not familiar with at all, and very few traditional carols, anymore. A hippopotamus for Christmas? Seriously? I'm over it. At least Grandma got run over by a reindeer. That's a holiday-oriented story. But a hippo? You kids get off my lawn!

PS: Your guys are still trying to filch our star catcher. Cut that out! 😜
