Weep, Dear Reader, for Mellowmas Is Nigh

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Peace on Earth, goodwill toward men, et cetera, et cetera. We all love a little holiday cheer — but a little can go a long way when it means Christmas music is being piped through every overhead speaker and FM frequency in all the land.

Enter Mellowmas, the grand Popdose tradition dedicated to mercilessly skewering the crassest, the most incompetent, and the just plain worst that holiday music has to offer. Once again, your brave hosts have submitted themselves to a full 25 days of jingle-belled dreck, and it all starts tomorrow.

Since Mellowmas started, we’ve endured everything from gloopy ’80s adult contemporary to Norwegian country, heavy metal, and novelty tracks from washed-up rockers. You’d think there wouldn’t be anything left for us to cover…and if that were true, we would all be so much happier, but of course, there’s always more. Sleep well, gentle souls…in 24 hours, Mellowmas 2013 begins.

    I have been so tainted by Mellowmas, my brain read the third sentence as, “Peace on Earth, goodwill toward men, Pete Cetera, Pete Cetera.”

    This will not end well. It never does.

    Xmas sux. Xmas music sux worse (except for the “Razzleberry dressing” song from Magoo’s Xmas Carol and “Thanks For Xmas” by XTC. Otherwise, nix. Not even “Felpin Mansions” can save it.
