19 December: Big Dee Irwin & Little Eva: I Wish You A Merry Christmas

Published December 19, 2013

If you're looking for lyrics with several layers to them, open for a multitude of different interpretations, speaking to you on manifold levels all at the same time - well, I'm afraid you've come to the wrong song. Let's put it this way: there is a shortage of subtle metaphors and clever conceits here. The message is quite simple: I wish you a merry Christmas, and not much else. But sometimes that's all we need to hear, right? Especially when delivered in the happy and carefree manner of this splendid recording by Big Dee Irwin and Little Eva. Oh, and the song was written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. Need I say more? I think not.

Listen here.
