  1. Haha poor kids of today living in such ignorance :-D

    I have to agree with your son. I hate ‘Last Chistmas’. It has no right being on a Christmas playlist just because the poor saps heartbreak happened to occur at Christmas. You could replace Christmas with any day, say President’s day, and the song would work. Not a Christmas song.

  3. Natalie says:

    um. Your son is correct.

  4. Allicia F says:

    Oh Wham! How I love thee… Seriously, that is totally Christmas music!

  5. Outburst says:

    Hahaha!

    “Last Holi Festival you colored my heart
    But the very next day you bleached it away”

    Yes, the song works with every religion.

    The first time I hear it during the season, I can handle it. The 4,837th time I hear it, I wanna take a hostage.

  7. Last Festivus… yea, no. It doesn’t necessarily have to be ABOUT Christmas to be ‘seasonal’ music. I’m ok with it.

  8. Jennifer says:

    Isn’t it the ONLY Christmas song?

  9. cntorlock says:

    Totally agree with the kid

  10. Mollie says:

    This is a Christmas song in the same way Dan Fogelberg’s Same Old Lang Syne is a Christmas song. That is, it isn’t actually a Christmas song at all.

  11. Jenn says:

    It is definitely Christmas music!

  12. Any time that song comes on I say “Haha, he’s talking about a guy.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    The issue is NOT is it or is it not a Christmas song-

    The issue IS: Is the song good enough for radio? Answer: No, never, stop getting it stuck in my head.

    -and-
    Nothing says “tis the season for emotionally unhealthy relationships, emotional abuse, and more bad decisions to sing about next year” like “last Christmas”
