More retreads

Every year the classic songs of the Christmas season get a year older. Every year I wonder where are the new ones. Elvis' Christmas album is almost fifty years old. I always thought "Celebrate Me Home" was a great Christmas song, but it didn't really stick. "This Christmas" has earned Muzak/mall music status. That's about it.

An essay in today's Times suggests that it's not just nostalgia at work.
