Oh, for sure! Because all my older relatives gave me that special look reserved just for me when I recently mentioned Die Hard as an obvious Christmas movie/tradition. And Gen X doesn't do anything unless it irritates the Boomers.

I have to give this one to the Jews. The current generation brought us this song :

And it's WAY better than our red neck representatives did for Christmas.

I think it might be a mistake to say the Gen X songs have to be performed by Gen X artists.

When you are 13 you are listening to artists who are 25-30.

The boomers listened to the Beatles and the Stones. A generation older than them. We listened to the Waitresses and J Giles band. A generation older than us.

13 year old kids today are listening to Taylor Swift, 26.

There is something amusing about "our music" that "we" identify with really being pedaled by the previous generation. It is nice to have deniability for the '80s though.

Wow. Some of the faces in that Squier piece brought back some memories.

The Christmas song for 'our' generation?

"Please Come Home For Christmas", by The Eagles, gets my vote, though not horrible.

I just read that this tune is the first Eagles song to feature Timothy B Schmidt on bass.

Die Hard, totally the Christmas Movie. Also I like to watch True lies and the Bodyguard. Because they're snowy. Like I don't get enough of that shit.....

yes I've been here long enough to hate the snow. sprained a rib shoveling it this morning and then it snowed more.

(it fucking hurts)
