Song of the Week: Santa ClausPosted by admin on December 5, 2020 Blog | Parody Songs | Spence's Song of the Week | Videos | No comments
We all know the story of old St. Nick, aka Kris Kringle, aka Father Christmas, aka, the dude that never got me anything I asked for, aka Santa Claus. As the story goes, he travels around the world in one night, breaks into houses, sips some milk, nips at a cookie and, for the trouble, leaves you a couple of brightly decorated packages ‘neath the tree. It is the subject of my Song of the Week.
Dude’s been running the same Christmas Eve routine for about 1,800 years. In addition to all that I’ve listed above, he also is a mind reader, if not omnipotent. (I’ve always felt that the “he sees you when you’re sleeping” part is a little creepy. Old dude who hangs out with elves, miniature human beings of sorts, and his in his spare time, watches children sleep. That’s is ooky.)
Regardless, this is his season. Christmas belongs to Santa. While there have been numerous songs written about the man, I don’t believe there is one quite like this.
With apologies to The Beastie Boys, both living and dead, I present a parody of their legendary track, “Sabotage.” It’s my Song of the Week for Friday, December 4, 2020.
