I listen to a lot less Christmas than I did before. It's hard to listen to the same music every year, except for Last Christmas.

Nowadays, I just turn on the local Christmas radio station because I'm not interested in streaming the stuff. So speaking of Last Christmas, the radio has been playing Taylor Swift's version.

What a crappy cover, it's so boring! We were driving around yesterday and heard how flat the whole thing is. Then the 2000s country fiddle and slide guitar comes in too. :vomit:

It seems like every store I've been to since Black Friday has that, All I Want For Christmas or Wonderful Christmas Time playing.

I've only bought one Christmas album in my life

It had one of my favorite lines from a music review in the New York Times;

"Snoop Doggy Dogg counts off the 12 Days of Christmas and how intoxicated he plans on being for them."

Murder On The Dancefloor back in the UK top 10 due to it being in the movie Saltburn.

It's also starting to take off in the US, where it only made the dance charts.

It was the 12th biggest selling song of 2002 in Australia, so I'm guessing it will be big again here as well.

When murder on the dahnce floor is the best thing on the chart, the world should collectively hang it's heads in shame.

Taylor Swifts Copperfield is better!
But Drake and SZA's Penn and Teller is the best modern song that uses magicians as metaphor for leaving.

They're all just pale versions of Hall And Oates Siegfried and Roy though, and you know that as well as I do.

Murder On The Dancefloor is up to #2 in the UK, equalling it's original highest chart position.

It's re-entered the Australian charts at #25.

Also, Natasha Bedingfield's Unwritten is back in the UK charts at #24 due to being in Anyone But You.

Mason vs Princess Superstar - Perfect (Exceeder) is at 26 in the UK due to being in Saltburn.

Rodney Dangerfield being in heavy rotation is the biggest tell that EVERYTHING has gotten worse since the 80's... MTV, music, comedy, America, simply everything is not as good as someone playing Rappin' Rodney up to 4 times a day.

Where did we as a species go wrong?

I mean, Ben's part isn't that great, but the rest of it is catchy.
