Best Christmas Song Ever

By November 28, 2012

Follow me on:

Technically, THIS is the best Christmas song ever (see below). At least for me. It encompasses the seasonal despair I feel vis-à-vis a holiday I personally associate with household-wide anomie, financial agony and a constant stream of childhood rejection and humiliation (don't ask).

But for the first time in four years, a song has come close to outshining my annual anthem, Jingle Cats: White Christmas in Hell. It's composed by Montreal native -- actually, he's a Longueuil native but let's not remind him -- slash superstar Jon Lajoie, who propelled himself to Youtube fame with his almost debut smash hit Everyday Normal Guy back in 2007. Tens of millions of views and two albums later, he landed the prestigious role of out-of-work pothead musician Taco McArthur on FX Network's The League.

And just today, the part-time Los Angeles resident released his brand new tune, The Best Christmas Song, which for all intents and purposes is possibly the worst Christmas song.

That's a good thing.
