Christmas is upon us and, depending on how the SAD is affecting me, I go from excited and happy to filled with dread and despair. In that mood, Christmas carols and standards can make me cry–so this week I’ll share weird old tracks that will merely fill you with confusion instead of bothersome feelings.

The first one is something by Mel Blanc, the voice of Looney Toons. His Christmas song sounds like it should be in a cartoon, but as far as I can tell it was just released as a standalone track in 1953.

It’s…festive? I know I’m hearing it wrong, but at :24 it really sounds like “f*** the merry Christmas tree.” Either way, an effective distraction!
