Christmas Song Advent Calendar: December 7

Today's song: Christmastime (Oh Yeah) by Barenaked Ladies

Why I love it: This song captures the spirit of the holidays perfectly: spending time with family, taking pleasure in small things, singing Christmas carols. And sometimes, the best way to express your feelings is with a big, contented "Oh yeah!" One of the reasons BNL is one of my favorite lines is because their voices sound very melodic, which often contrasts nicely with the off-the-wall lyrics they write. What else would you expect from the band who once famously concluded, "If I had a million dollars/(If I had a million dollars!)/If I had a million DOLLLAAARRRRS...I'd be rich!"
