A hodgepodge of music thoughts.
I don't think a Christmas song set in a specific place that isn't New York has been written in nearly 30 years.Come on, Will Smith, where's Christmas in Miami?Some shitty country band like Sugarland could write something about Houston, right? I mean, if they write any original songs.Bjork: Reindeer of RejkjavikMuse: The Christmas When We All Go to Washington and Burn Down the EstablishmentThe Tallest Man on Earth: The Fjurllethossonn's NoelIron & Wine: Happy New Year's Eve, 1972, from Hickory, NC...and just released from the vault, Andy Williams' 'The Magic of the Branson Holidays.'I might even be able to stomach a Springsteen 'Christmas on This Side of the River' sort of thing.
Right off hand, the only one I can think of is Crosby's "Christmas in Killarney". But now I really want to hear that Tallest Man on Earth song. Make it happen!
