Xmas Songs (sans "Merry")

Ah, Christmas Eve. It’s the day that eveyone has been building up to for the past three months. So, how do you feel?

Like shit?

Great. You now have the right mindset for this thread. What is your favorite depressing Christmas song. You know, the one that reminds you of all the friends and relatives that are no longer around. Or that you live a lonely existence and have no one to share the holidays with. Or that mankind is an evil thing that doesn’t deserve peace on earth. Fess up. What song darkens your yuletide spirit?

My vote: Same Old Lang Syne by Dan Fogelburg

(Remember: It’ll all be over soon.)

The Louvin Brothers recorded what must be the most depressing song, holiday or otherwise, of all time, “A Shut-in at Christmas.”

John Prine’s “Christmas in Prison”
Well it’s Christmas in Prison and the food’s real good
We got turkey and pistols carved out of wood
And I dream of her always, even when I don’t dream

You want brilliance BEFORE I’ve had my coffee!!!
