|Or maybe I'm jsut old

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is the music. So when Husband told me that a local Christian rock station was playing nothing but Christmas music, I eagerly set the dial on my car radio.
It's driving me crazy.
I'm not a fuddy-duddy. Really, I'm not. I like all kinds of music, and I like hearing a new spin on old favorites. But it seems like every song they play is a "modernization" of a song that I really would rather hear in the original.
I don't really need to hear a calypso version of Joy to the World. I can get through the season just fine without a Las Vegas Lounge inspired Oh Holy Night. Ditto for an O Come, O Come, Emmanuel that is rephrased so choppily it sounds like someone hired Captain Kirk as a vocal coach.
Do these songs really need a hip new spin? The whole drive home, I had visions of "Buddy Jesus" in my head.
