Depressing Christmas songs...
Not intending to bring anyone down here, but just wondering, what depressing Christmas songs do you remember?

I can think of two offhand.

"Please, Daddy, Don't Get Drunk This Christmas" by John Denver

"Hard Candy Christmas" by Dolly Parton

1. I think they're all pretty depressing, frankly.
Once you've heard them 4,237 times each, the magic kind of wears off.

"Christmas Shoes" has to be on the list, of course.

3. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"
The family is packed and ready to move from St. Louis to New York. Trudy waited up late for her sister, Judy Garland to come home from a Christmas dance. No one is very happy.

7. "River." Fortunately, it's also gorgeous.
And some of the covers will surprise you.
