Christmas is just around the corner, which means that department stores are already filled with cheery holiday music. Listen closely, though! What you think is a pretty innocuous song about the "meaning of the season" might just have questionable undertones and inappropriate interpretations. Some classics just haven't aged well. Here are 10 disturbing Christmas lyrics that you may have never noticed.
1 of 15 "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer"
I can tell by the tone and delivery of this song that it is supposed to be funny, but I have never seen it that way. This kid’s grandmother is brutally killed outside his home, and he is morbidly amused by it. Moreover, it goes into pretty graphic detail.
Putting aside the death of the grandma, there are still troubling aspects to the song. The grandfather seems unconcerned with this wife's death and continues to watch football, play cards with his cousins, and drink beer. In fact, the grandmother herself was intoxicated during her maiming. We're all about some holiday fun, but this may be just a little over the top.
