Kite Flying Society just gave us the only gift that matters this time of year — a new song!
MP3: Kite Flying Society – This Christmas
Is this the first somber Christmas song that I’ve ever enjoyed? “This Christmas” starts off with the lines “this Christmas, don’t be merry” so you know it’s going to be far from your garden-variety seasonal tune. Instead of lauding and holly jolly wishes, KFS offer only pleas to get back their lost girl. Nothing tops that last line either: “These red and green December blues are mine / These days it feels like Christmas all the time.”
