My DSP 3: Getting Ready for Christmas Day

Song: Getting Ready for Christmas Day

Artist: Paul Simon

Year: 2010

Favorite Lyric: I’ve got a nephew in Iraq, it’s his third time back
but it’s ending up the way it began
With the luck of a beginner, he’ll be eating turkey dinner
on some mountain top in Pakistan

Significance: I always feel with Paul Simon songs the significance is that it is a Paul Simon song. I also just love that he never misses a beat, even when he’s writing a Christmas song 4 decades after his career began. This isn’t “Jingle Bells” but it’s modern and relevant, just like Simon himself. He even samples a Christmas sermon. Hey kids, samples! So this is definitely one I’ll listen to when decorating the tree, how about you?
