Ho ho ho and this means YOU

Christmas in L.A. has a long tradition of evoking...well, complicated feelings, and this song gets right in line. The music is sunny pop, fueled by toms and Farfisa, just perfect for a dance party at the beach. The lyrics tell a different story, though, starting with a pointed pun suggesting "let's take the 'x' out of Xmas, please." By the bridge it's clear our narrator is justifiably miserable: "Nobody here to deck the damn halls / And you won't return my calls." But the song successfully treads a very narrow path: it's not subtle, yet it's not bathetic, due to sharply observed details and the timing of lines like "Baby it's all right / No it's not all right / Things just ain't right." The singer is keenly aware of his predicament, and that self-knowledge gives the song just the right ironic edge. It's like a dash of bitters in the punchbowl. Musically it's a bouncy retro-pop confection of acoustic guitar, surf drums, swoony harmonies, and the aforementioned organ. Andy Dick's lead vocal is assured and musical and never breaks character; whatever else, the song's not the least bit tongue-in-cheek and Dick's voice is up to the challenge. Christmas songs, especially "celebrity" christmas songs, are usually doomed to the novelty category. That would be a shame in this case, as the tune not only can stand on its own, it deserves to be on the radio long past the season's demise.
