Look – there’s no shame in admitting it: we at ManMade love the holiday season. The lights, the smells, and, most importantly, the sounds. No, not the soft rock mall music or the umpteenth crooner cover filler track, but the good holiday songs. The ones that give you energy, make you feel festive, and happy that it’s December.
And so, in 2015, we’re sharing our ManMade Musical Advent Calendar, where we offer a new favorite holiday song every day, by bands you actually care about.
Saturday, December 12th: “Snow Falls Down” by Good Old War
If you listen to lots of holiday music, you’ll notice some lyrical themes. The most dominant is probably the “the lights are on, the night is quiet, everyone is happy, I’m saying a bunch of four word phrases that describe things that happen at Christmas, I like Christmas” version This is one of those, but the chorus is so head-stuckingly catchy that you’ll want to listen to it three times a day anyway. If you set the right tone, then you’ve done your job. These guys nailed it.
