The music outside is frightful

Ever since the time I spent eight hours of Christmas Day fogged in at the Kansas City airport, I’ve found the season of canned Christmas music hard to take. But thanks to 105.5 Triple M for brightening today’s drive back from daycare with KT Tunstall’s new recording of the eternally lovable “Mele Kalikimaka.” “You got Hawaiian kitsch in my canned Christmas music!” “No, you got canned Christmas music in my Hawaiian kitsch!” It’s delicious.

You can listen to the most famous rendition of this song, by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters, at melekalikimaka.com, naturally.
