Give It to Someone Special

by Steven Kent

“This Christmas, ‘Whamageddon’ Will Save You From Tears…
The goal: To go as long as possible without hearing the 1984
Wham! song ‘Last Christmas’ before Christmas Day.'”
The New York Times

As teens we chose to be defined
By music. Each and every kind
Had fans who their devotion swore
To certain singers evermore.

The world is very different now,
But frankly I just don’t see how
A love of music brings us cheer
That’s based on songs we didn’t hear.
