Thread Name: Depressing Christmas Songs
Subject: RE: Depressing Christmas
One of the many things I like about this forum is that it makes me take a closer look at songs that I may have heard before, but maybe didn't pay attention to.I've always liked "First Chrsitmas," but seeing the lyrics posted brought out some of the power of the song that I hadn't noticed. Yeah, it's depressing, but it's a true reflection of the pain a lot of people experience during the holidays.
"Harris and the Mare" is another powerful, depressing Stan Rogers song that deserves a closer look.
