We don't usually get political Christmas songs, but these are the times we currently live in. Boston's Love Love has just released their new Christmas song, "It's Christmas We Wanna Be Happy." Musically, it's a straightforward rock song with hardly a jingle bell to be heard. It's only through the lyrics that you get the holiday nature of the song, and while politics aren't specifically mentioned, with lyrics like "There’s a bad clown leading us, don’t let him lead you" and the more obvious "Impeach that bad clown and let’s get down to business," I'm pretty sure we can guess where this is going. The message of the song is no matter how bad you may find things, at least try to be happy on Christmas. The band refers to it as a "... a short song with a long, raucous, party outro," which it is, but make sure to give the party outro a shot. It somehow holds the whole song together.
You can listen to "It's Christmas We Wanna Be Happy" over at Love Love's Soundcloud. For more on Love Love, be sure to check them out on Facebook. If you happen to be in the area, they're playing Luthier's Coop in Boston with Ray Mason Band on Saturday the 22nd.
