Sharing the Christmas Bloggy Love

I just found a great site today belonging to Missy at It's Almost Naptime. You should go there and read at least her last two posts. And now I'm directly stealing an idea from her--posting what is possibly the all-time worst Christmas music video ever, but then I haven't seen that many by Kenny Rogers or Wayne Newton. If you can remember big bangs and frizzy perms, you'll love/hate this. One of the best parts is when the frizzy perm gets wet.

All I'm going to say is "WHAM-O" and where can I get an old-lady brooch like that?

This is one of only two songs that haunt me this time of year. Ugh.

Tammy said...

Linda, this is too funny because every time this song comes on- it started last year at this time, in fact- my oldest daughter, now 8, loves singing along with it. I always thought it was so dumb, personally...but now if it comes on in the car, the whole family, including hubby, has to sing along! LOL

Never say the video until now, though...I can see I wasn't missing much! :) zzzzz

OK, I was just at Becky's and see you were at my place without saying hi...tsk, tsk! ;)

Susan said...

I love this song...but now I just don't know! Thanks for sharing Linda!

Merrie said...

You are right... the brooch is a MUST have! haha.. so glad we don't have the big fuzzy hair these days. Wonder WHAT they were thinking when they made this "wonderful" video..

Missy said...

Thank you Linda!
I know where our connection lies...in Christopher Guest movies. My favorite is Best in Show. Twisted minds laugh alike :)

Now I'm feeling kind of nostalgic, I didn't realize how cool and fashionably styled my hair was in the 80's,looking back, so I wonder when this trend is coming back around...because I'll be right on top of it.

Susanne said...

Do I dare admit I've never heard this song before? And do I dare admit I had that girl's blunt permed haircut? Scary.

1. My 13 year old daughter loves this song.

2. Even though I don't like it I catch myself singing it.

3. The video was so bad I couldn't even finish watching it.

4. I used to have my hair permed like that. Aaaagggghhhhh.....

5. The bad part is I really wouldn't mind if perms came back in style! (shhhh...don't tell anyone) LOL

Cyndy said...

Ahhh, the eighties...George Michael...fuzzy perms...brooches...But I'm with Susanne I don't remember this song. Maybe it's because I'm usually listening to Bing Crosby this time of year...oh well...thanks for the flashback!

I'm coming out of lurkdom to admit that not only did I LOVE that video, I HAD that broach. And instead of the frizzy perm, I went for George Michael's hair. I thought it was gorgeous!

Okay... I'm joining the throngs to admit this is a new one on me. Of course, I also have to admit it gave me a new idea for a Christmas story for next year... let me go write it down before I forget it, 'cause I'm just good that way. (good at forgetting)
