Band Aid -- "Do They Know It's Christmas?"

It's Christmastime
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmastime, we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmastime it's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging
chimes of doom
Well, tonight thank God it's them instead of you

And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
(Oooh) Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

(Here's to you) raise a glass for everyone
(Here's to them) underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again

[repeat then fade]

(Bob Geldof & Midge Ure)

Dan Fogelberg - "Same Old Lang Syne"

Met my old lover in the grocery store
The snow was falling Christmas Eve
I stole behind her in the frozen foods
And I touched her on the sleeve
She didn't recognize the face at first
But then her eyes flew open wide
She went to hug me and she spilled her purse
And we laughed until we cried

We took her groceries to the checkout stand
The food was totalled up and bagged
We stood there lost in our embarrassment
As the conversation dragged
We went to have ourselves a drink or two
But couldn't find an open bar
We bought a six-pack at the liquor store
And we drank it in her car

We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to now
And tried to reach beyond the emptiness but neither one knew how

She said she'd married her an architect
Who kept her warm and safe and dry
She would have liked to say she loved the man
But she didn't like to lie
I said the years had been a friend to her
And that her eyes were still as blue
But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I saw doubt or gratitude
She said she saw me in the record stores
And that I must be doing well
I said the audience was heavenly but the traveling was hell

We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to now
And tried to reach beyond the emptiness but neither one knew how
We drank a toast to innocence, we drank a toast to time
Reliving in our eloquence, another "auld lang syne"

The beer was empty and our tongues were tired
And running out of things to say
She gave a kiss to me as I got out
And I watched her drive away
Just for a moment I was back at school
And felt that old familiar pain
And as I turned to make my way back home
The snow turned into rain....

Jingle Bells - Heath Ledger and Willie Nelson  Grin



Holy Smokes, John!  You made this, didn't you?  It's great.  And I remember Heath on that talk show, talking about Christmas in Australia, how they would stand around in their "singlets" (I had to look that word up back then - 'tank top,' basically) in the Australian December summer heat, and sing Christmas carols.

That's wonderful, thanks for sharing it.  I'll enjoy it all season long, and beyond.  Smiley

Yes that was Heath on Late Night with Conan O'Brien a couple of years ago.

I had to look up 'singlet' too when I got my shirt on the big Ebay auction. That word was on the wardrobe tag.

Hey wow!  And you own all that now?   I hadn't registered that.  I've seen you in it, haven't I?  And I didn't realize what I was seeing.

What is the word right before 'singlet' on the tag?  "Teched?"

I love his voice.  It's funny, I always seem to gravitate to songs sung by females, there are very few male singers that I like to listen to.

Short list includes:  Chad Kroeger (Nickleback), Darius Rucker, Josh Groban, Peter Cetera, Chris Daughtry (Daughtry)

and I came here to post Dan Folgelberg's "Same Auld Lang Syne".

This song gets played during the holidays, increasing in the week between Christmas and New Year's Day.  The song, however, has nothing to do with the holidays, other than the opening lines:  "Met my old lover in the grocery store, the snow was falling, Christmas Eve."

Also read on DCF that apparently there are people who refer to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" as "the date rape song".

To be honest, neither do I.  I've heard quite a few different versions of the song, and it always sounds innocent enough.

Now that someone said that, whenever I hear the song and I hear the line "Say, what's in this drink?"  I laugh

Also read on DCF that apparently there are people who refer to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" as "the date rape song".

I don't get that one.

To be honest, neither do I.  

Me, neither--but I love the TV commercial for Barnes and Noble with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga singing a bit of it.  Grin  Whenever I see that commercial, I think, I hope some day she does an album of Old Standards, or songs from The Great American Songbook, or whatever you want to call it, because that woman really has an amazing voice.

I saw a part of that last night, actually, but my attention was divided, so I really wasn't looking for clues one way or the other.  Perhaps later today.

Haven't seen that commercial, but do agree that Lady Gaga has a great voice.

Yesterday I dug out the small radio I have at work, and connected my phone to it.  I have about 100 (maybe more) Christmas songs in a playlist on it, and now the office hears Christmas music during the day.

Baby It's Cold Outside pulled by US radio station after listeners complain lyrics at odds with #MeToo

Tom Embury-Dennis @tomemburyd   Saturday 1 December 2018 22:26


A US radio station has removed Christmas classic Baby It’s Cold Outside from its playlist after listeners complained it was at odds with the #MeToo movement.

Glenn Anderson, a host at Star 102 Cleveland, in Ohio, confirmed the station had pulled the song over what he said were the “manipulative and wrong” lyrics.

"The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place,” Mr Anderson wrote in a blog.

Written in 1944 by composer Frank Loesser, the song takes the form of a back-and-forth conversation in which a man tries to convince a woman not to journey home in bad weather and to spend the night with him instead.

The song includes lines such as: “I really can’t stay (Baby don’t hold out)”, “I ought to say no, no, no (Mind if I move in closer)”, and, infamously, “Say, what’s in this drink?”

Some have accused the latter lyric of being an allusion to date rape, whereas others argue the line in the 1930s effectively meant, “I’m telling the truth”.

Backlash as more radio stations ban "Baby, It's Cold Outside" over lyrics

Following the lead of several other radio stations in the United States and Canada, Bay Area radio station KOIT said it was banning the holiday staple "Baby, It's Cold Outside," CBS San Francisco reports. Many listeners have said the song heard on countless holiday playlists is inappropriate in the #MeToo era — but others are outraged the classic tune has been taken off the air.

Penned by "Guys and Dolls" writer Frank Loesser in 1944, the song's lyrics describe a woman trying extricate herself from a date and saying "no, no, no," while a man insists that she stays as he moves in closer, pours her more alcohol, and warns about the weather outside. Critics of the song say the lyrics promote date rape.

"I made the decision, it's off for now," Brian Figula, program manager at KOIT radio told CBS San Francisco, adding he is considering leaving the ultimate decision up to the people.

Since Figula announced the decision, the station has received many angry emails and social media posts from people upset with the decision, accusing the station of political correctness.

"They're upset!" said KOIT radio DJ Freska Griarte who has heard from lots of listeners from phone calls and social media posts.

"They're like, 'why are you guys doing this? What is going on? It's just a song.  While for some people, it means something more," Griarte said.

"I could definitely see where it's a little uncomfortable when you think about the lyrics being said," said Genevieve Ellison of San Francisco. "But then so are most of the songs on the radio today, right?"

I like the line in that song where he sings, "And my dear, we're still goodbying". I'll waive my disregard of nouns being turned into verbs for the sake of a good song rhyme.

In fact, I like it whenever I hear the word "dear" in a song. "Our dear saviour's birth" in "O Holy Night". Also, when Daniel Cartier says "my dear" in "Auld Lang Syne".  Kiss

Backlash as more radio stations ban "Baby, It's Cold Outside" over lyrics

The idea of seeing that one "go" doesn't bother me because I don't feel it's particularly "Christmas-y." It could just as well apply to January or February. Plus, I simply don't like it, even though I recognize that it's a "classic."

Except for the fact that I like them, I could say the same thing about "Sleigh Ride" and "Winter Wonderland." I like them, but I don't think they're particularly "Christmas-y." They could apply to any time in winter.

So, while we're at it, lets ban "Santa, Baby." Good Lord, I hate that song. Eartha Kitt's rendition is a classic of a performance, but talk about glorifying a predatory woman. ...

It doesn't help that I've seen way too many gay male parodies of it.
