Christmas Music Countdown: Day 3

Posted by Dave Bow on Thu, Dec 9, 2010 at 9:59 AM

Today's Christmas song is from one of my favorite holiday albums by one of my favorite bands. Of course Low has to be kinda a bummer even when they're singing about the Lord's day (and they're Mormon - they should be stoked!) but "Just Like Christmas" is a sweet kind of bummer. Apparently Christmas to Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker means feeling lost, young and too big for your bed. There may be something to that...
