Is "thing" a large blunt object? Because that's what I want to smash my radio with every time that farking McCartney song is played.

A slideshow of Youtube videos set up so that the video keeps playing but the controls for it disappear when you move to the next slide?

Congratulations AVClub, you've outdone yourself this time.
2021-12-08 6:58:35 AM  
Thank you, Thing.

The first one's catchy. It's reminiscent of the credits music in Miyazaki children's films. The rest, while inoffensive, are forgettable.

This classic's always on rotation.

Well, since we seem to be sharing favorite offbeat Christmas songs released this year or not. Caught a Royal Bliss show a few years ago when they opened for The Struts. I'd suggest looking up more of their stuff, but this one was really fun.

"Is there a more tired playlist than your family's annual holiday music sampler?"

As a matter of fact, yes. Ultra pretentious cool-because-they're-obscure collections of drivel compiled by wannabe edgy click wranglers for an irrelevant hipster blog. (Some with shocking profanity!)

as bad as "Simply Having..."is, this is the Christmas song I absolutely can't farking stand.  Mariah Carey's song sucks but i can tune it out.  the millisecond i hear this song, I do a shoulder roll to hit the off / scan button.

That godamn saxophone riff and mumbled lyrics.  god i hate this farking song.

Me too. Was a 5 year plus champ until my wife took me out. I retaliated with a Christmas Shoes tactical nuke. It's the only way to be sure...

What does Aunt Petunia's favorite nephew, the ever lovin' Blue Eyed Thing have to do with Christmas?
2021-12-08 5:43:28 PM  
Paul McCartney fangirl here.  I still think I'm going to marry him when I grow up, and I'm 57-years old.  I don't have all of his catalog, but I got a lot of it on vinyl, CD and digital.

"Simply" has it's cheeky Paulie moments and he sings a couple of notes that still makes me moist.  The video looks like every other family holiday gathering I remember. It's neither the best or the worst Christmas or McCartney song history.  But I do enjoy the memes!  Because I can laugh at my future husband like that.

The McCartney song I absolutely cannot listen to ever again is "Freedom".  "Simply" is farking "Eleanor Rigby" compared to that dreck.
2021-12-08 5:44:07 PM  
'Simply having' is without a doubt, the shiattiest xmas tune of all times. My 2cents.
