Reckon y'all has it too--stations playin' 24-/7 Christmas music--already. HINT to stations: It ain't even December!!!
Oh wait--mebbe youse all Ipoders, Ituners? Play lists, no radio?
Anyhoo, I wuz readin' at Chickory about her glitter blizzard an' sufferin' through repeatin' loops of Christmas muzak, an' she admitted wishin' fer a round of (Dolly's version?) Hard Candy Christmas.
An' I got to thinkin'. Pappy Cracker used to set mah teeth on edge wif' all them "honky tonk" songs, includin' Christmas songs when the season be rung in.
Pappy: "I found mah thriiiiiillll, ow-wn blueberry hilllll..."
"Oh Puhleeeeze Lousise!" mah teenaged self would groan.
Heh. I still cringe when them songs come along, but somethin' happened. Somethin' un-Grinch like happened. One year, one of the mostest honky tonk of all songs wormed into mah own list of favorites. I hate to admit it, but confession be good fer the soul.
Mebbe --jes' mebbe-- y'all has at least ONE corny, gooey, sappy honky tonk, juke (jook?) joint Christmas song that ya' akshully do sing? Would ya' share it wif us? An mebbe a line or two from the lyrics--an' how that song found space in yore playlist?
An soon as I can figger how to add a music clip to this heah post, I'll reveal mah own sappy, hony tonk song.
Meanwhile, heah is an early honky tonk classic--not Christmas, jes' classic.
