Okay, I heard “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”, originally by The Jackson 5, on the radio today, and it got me thinking about the intent.
This seems to be a light-hearted song, but if you study it, it’s creepy. If the boy still really believes in Santa Claus, then why is he giggling and laughing about his mom being a tramp whore and Santa being a giant womanizing pig? On the other hand, if he knows Santa is a game and is probably just his dad, then why is he going on and on about “I’m gonna tell dad”?
Any other Christmas songs you feel are creepy underneath or don’t make sense?
