If you’re having a sad Christmas this year, you can turn to a sad Christmas song for comfort. Some of the most popular songs about the holiday are “Merry Christmas, Darling,” “If We Make It Through December,” and Dan Fogelberg’s “Same Old Lang Syne.” If you’re having a particularly tough time, try a song by Joel or Dan Fogelberg. They’re both incredibly popular and will give you a good cry.

Darlene Love’s “Merry Christmas, Darling”

If you’re in search of a timeless holiday tune, you can’t go wrong with Darlene Love’s Merry Christmas, Dearling. This classic has a wide variety of cover versions from Mariah Carey to Bon Jovi, and even a Christmas-themed song by Cast of Nashville. Read on for the history of this popular holiday tune and find out if it’s your favorite.

This classic Christmas song, written by a World War II soldier, combines the white savior trope and a tragic situation – the famine in Africa. Darlene Love’s “Christmas, Darling” is a classic that has both a pure pop sensibility and crushing heartache. A similar song by Kacey Musgraves is about pondering the mortality of a parent.

Love was also honored during a segment on the Late Show, where she performed the holiday classic. During the segment, Love spoke to David Letterman about her sister’s death, and then proceeded to sing a few lines on top of Paul Shaffer’s piano. Fake snow fell on her as she finished her final verse. While the show closed with “Christmas, Darling,” Love was still alive and well, performing the song for another 30 years.

The classic holiday tune is still as popular as ever. With its catchy melody and nostalgic lyrics, “White Christmas” is one of the best-selling holiday songs of all time. It is a staple of holiday albums and is a timeless classic. Darlene Love’s version of the song has a long history of live performances on Late Night with David Letterman. Its jazzy R&B version will get your guests moving and dancing.

Having to spend Christmas alone is not an uncommon scenario. In “Merry Christmas, Darling,” the title character imagines spending the holiday with her family. While the narrator spends her green Christmas alone, she’s desperate to make it home to her family. In reality, she’s alone and living a life as a prostitute in Los Angeles. As a result, she writes an unwelcome letter to her ex, claiming to be happily married, pregnant, and sober.

Merle Haggard’s “If We Make It Through December”

One of Merle Haggard’s most famous songs, “If We Make It Through December,” tells the story of a man who lost his factory job and cannot afford to buy his daughter a Christmas present. Although released on a Christmas album, the song was not considered a Christmas song, and was re-released on a non-Christmas album in 1974.

Although he was not born in Oklahoma, his parents’ love for the state of Oklahoma had an influence on his singing. In fact, he started touring on the state of Oklahoma as early as October 1969, when he performed “Okie From Muskogee” at the Muskogee civic center. In an interview with the McAlester News Capital, Haggard explained that he inherited his love for Oklahoma from his parents.

Haggard’s “If We Make It” was originally released in October 1973 as the lead single of his album Christmas Present. In addition to being a hit in the U.S., it became a number one single in Canada, too. It has since been covered by Phoebe Bridgers and other artists. It is also the title track of Haggard’s next studio album. In the United States, it has become a crossover hit, peaking at the 28th spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The song was written by Merle Haggard and recorded by his wife, Judy Bridgers. The song was written about loneliness during the holiday season. Instead of the fiddle and upbeat guitar of Merle Haggard’s version, the song features muted piano. The somber country feel of the song captures the emotions of the season without the usual holiday cheer and Hallmark movie soundtrack.

While the Vietnam War has affected many aspects of life in America, Merle Haggard is still a force in the country music industry. His song “Okie From Muskogee” became a conservative anthem in the years after the war. Although it has political overtones, it is the song’s down-home values that earned it the Academy of Country Music Song of the Year honor in 1982. Merle Haggard also makes references to marijuana, American-made cars, and marijuana.

Dan Fogelberg’s “Same Old Lang Syne”

“Same Old Lang Syne” is a beloved holiday song, and the title is a perfect example. This light-rock radio classic deconstructs eggnog conventions, sounding like a Raymond Carver story. In addition to its charmingly corny tune, “Same Old Lang Syne” is an enduring work of American culture and art.

The song, written by Dan Fogelberg, became a yuletide staple after its release as a single in 1980. The autobiographical narrative ballad tells the story of two former lovers meeting again on Christmas Eve, and it is the perfect song for the holiday season. The lyrics are also poignant, telling of a love affair gone wrong. A few years after Fogelberg’s death, his longtime love interest, Greulich, came out as the man who inspired the song.

The lyrics are timeless. Fogelberg, who died in 2007, made the tune famous after his album Home Free. It was a special day for Fogelberg and Greulich as they were high school sweethearts. Besides “Same Old Lang Syne,” Fogelberg wrote many songs about high school lovers, and he was a famous physical education teacher. He did not write a letter to his former girlfriend, but his high school girlfriend, Jill Anderson, had heard the song on the radio and fell in love.

The song was composed by the late Dan Fogelberg, a sensitive, ’70s singer-songwriter who loved the environment. He lived on estates in Maine and Colorado. The song is widely recognized and is credited as an influence on a wide range of artists, including My Morning Jacket, Garth Brooks and the Zac Brown Band. So, what’s so special about this song?

The song was Dan Fogelberg’s first hit single, “The Innocent Age.” It was intended to be a humorous piece about a lost love meeting. However, it quickly gained a serious emotional weight, reaching the Top 40 two days after Christmas. If you haven’t heard “Same Old Lang Syne,” I highly recommend it. Just don’t forget to share it with your friends.

The song is based on Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. The song ends with a solo soprano saxophone by Michael Brecker. A little girl once asked Fogelberg what his lyrics meant. She thought they meant “feeling warmer” or “being connected to my ex-girlfriend.”
