Let me tell y'all, I have not been in the Christmas mood. The closest I got was doing some decorating at work, Secret Santa, and the bit of dirty snow we had last weekend. It's just been a rough one this time around, what with moving away from my childhood home, being alone in the city, and having shakey plans for the whole weekend.
On the backend of it all, I can't say I necessarily have been filled with the spirit, but I can say that this song seems to get it. It didn't occur to me that it was much more than background music until it came on last night as I was driving back into Brooklyn.
BUT, you're not here to hear about my weird holiday feelings! You're here for music. So I present to you a little different, yet entirely Brooklyn, musical Christmas tribute to this insane place. While things like this may never become classics year to year, we'll take it as another hidden Christmas-time gem.
(PS - Welcome to the slightly re-vamped site, thanks to Apple Music's new previewer and PixTeller's fun tools to show off cool lyrics. We're going to try some new things while we get back on track. Hang on folks - time to re-take flight. <3 The Hawke.)
