Sunday Samples 308

December 23, 2012

This weekend presents a bit of a poser. On the one hand, we’re two days past the overblown “Mayan Apocalypse”, but the obvious R.E.M. song is so overplayed that it would make a really boring pick. On the other hand, we’re two days ahead of Christmas. Luckily, “Weird Al” Yankovic presents us with the perfect solution: “Christmas at Ground Zero”!

It’s Christmas at ground zero
There’s music in the air
The sleigh bells are ringin’ and the carolers are singin’
While the air raid sirens flare

It’s Christmas at ground zero
The button has been pressed
The radio just let us know
That this is not a test

Everywhere the atom bombs are dropping
It’s the end of all humanity
No more time for last-minute shopping
It’s time to face your final destiny

It’s Christmas at ground zero
There’s panic in the crowd
We can dodge debris while we trim the tree
Underneath the mushroom cloud

You might hear some reindeer on your rooftop
Or Jack Frost on your windowsill
But if someone’s climbing down your chimney
You better load your gun and shoot to kill

It’s Christmas at ground zero
And if the radiation level’s okay
I’ll go out with you and see all the new
Mutations on New Year’s Day

It’s Christmas at ground zero
Just seconds left to go
I’ll duck and cover with my Yuletide lover
Underneath the mistletoe

It’s Christmas at ground zero
Now the missiles are on their way
What a crazy fluke, we’re gonna get nuked
On this jolly holiday
What a crazy fluke, we’re gonna get nuked
On this jolly holiday
