It was inevitable. Coronavirus Christmas songs and parodies I mean. I easily found a dozen on YouTube and there were many more, mostly homemade and amateur. Celebs and semi-celebs posted professional videos featuring original songs—Justin Bieber and a choir made up of British National Health Service workers collaborated on a charity song and video a remix of the star’s single Holy, Covid Christmas by rapper Trisha Paytas, and Disinfects the Halls by mid-level country star Chris Stapleton off of a whole album of pandemic Christmas music. But parodies by YouTube stars dominate.
It is quite fitting that The Twelve Days of Christmas, the holiday song once voted the “most annoying,” was satirized by several performers each with their own take. I understand why a lot of folks were irked by the original, but my personal list of annoying and/or detestable holiday songs include Dominick the Donkey, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer, and is capped by the loathsome Christmas Shoes. Be that as it may, The Twelve Days of Christmas is long and repetitive, just like days of Covid-19 isolation.
From several possible candidates I plucked one by a duo called Jon + Jon about who may be affiliated with the New Life Church in Eugene, Oregon. I otherwise know nothing about them, but here is their take, Twelve Days of Christmas Covid Edition.
