So says a YouTube commenter of this song. I’m glad they did, because it saves me from having to express a similar sentiment, the result of which would almost certainly be me shooting straight down to hell with no eggnog.
I mean, flipping heck. This one pulls out all the stops. Following yesterday’s jolly little ode to death, this one amps up the tearjerkiness to 11 by incorporating the death of a parent, the grief of a child and the efforts of said nipper to buy his mum one last gift before the Grim Reaper carts her off. Merry Christmas!
Now, depending on whether you’re a granite-hearted cynic (hi!) or the kind of person who tunes into Animal Hospital for a good weep, this song will either touch your heart or boil your blood. You can see the appropriately mushy video over the page.


Like I said, I fear eternal damnation if I slate it, so it’s back to the YouTube commenters, where all human life can be found.

And there it is in a nutshell – the eternal battle between the evil yet literate, and the good yet apoplectic.
Come back tomorrow to discover what on earth could be worse than this:
