In the midst of their angst-ridden rise to fame, Pearl Jam wrote a little ditty called “Let Me Sleep.” It’s short, simple and to-the-point: The magic of Christmas is gone, so leave me alone and just let it slide right over my sleeping body. I won’t even quote any of it, since there’s really not much else to it.
I include it here not because I particularly sympathize with Vedder’s mawkish moodiness. Rather, I like this song because it’s precisely the opposite of the way I feel. I don’t see anything particularly magical about Christmas either, but I still enjoy it.
Nothing special in the video here, since this was a “lost dog” song. Enjoy, even if the only enjoyment you get is realizing you’re much better off than the point of view proffered here.
