Christmas Music Countdown - #22

To see the rest of the countdown, go here!

Today's song in the Christmas countdown is one that always stirs up an argument in my home.  The song, "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer", is a novelty song that came out in the late 1970's, but has become a fixture on the radio.  How does it stir up an argument?  In the silly little cartoon of the same name, Grandma is held hostage and is alive after being run over by a reindeer.  In the song, as I argue in the post linked above, it is plain that Grandma is killed from the incident.  But no matter - every year brings up the exact same silly argument!  Anyway - enjoy the song by Elmo and Patsy...
