Slushy, sudsy, and saccharine, this replacement for human life weathers on yet today. The background music is brilliant at telegraphing the ‘complex’ emotions the scenes wreak within you. Some of it is well worth sharing, i will admit. Music from Grey’s Anatomy is nearly an industry in itself, despite the season often breaks around Xmas without addressing the holidays much.
SEASON 2: “This Christmastime” by Mascott is charming folk pop.
Any excuse for The LeeVees, please! “Latke Clan” bounces in that same realm.
“Christmas After All” by Maria Taylor is that self indulgent grown up pop that sounds better than it is.
SEASON 6: “A Magical Season” by Tim Myers is also adult bubblegum. YAWN.
“All I Want for Chrsitmas (Is to Give My Love Away)” by The Rescues is late nite FM porn. So sweet.
Ingrid Michaelson restores a tiny bit of integrity with authentic folk in “Snowfall.” Still too weepy by half.
SEASON 7: “It’s Christmastime” by Jules Larson is upbeat altpop. Something danceable at last.
Back to melancholia from Boy Least Likely To with “First Snowflake.” So thoughtful… snore.
“Nun Gimmel Heh Shin” by The LeeVees recites the dreidel faces with much ponderous portent.
