SONGS OF THE SEASON #1: It's one of the few Christmas songs I look forward to playing every year. I'm not a Christmas song hater by any means, but when you've been playing them every year since 1980, as I have, and you're pretty much a captive audience when they come on, as I am, you have a whole new appreciation for the volume control. But when this one comes on, I'm cranking it up to "11"  Spinal Tap reference :)

I'm willing to bet even the most feminist woman in the room can't help but sing along to Mariah Carey's Christmas declaration about a woman who doesn't care about presents or lights; all she desires for Christmas is to spend time with her lovah.

And fellas, don't lie. You dig “All I want for Christmas Is You” too. Even if won't cop to it out loud.
