All is Bright

Dark Light

All is Bright is a digital holiday playlist that was curated by Amazon and was initially made available on November 20, 2014 to customers who subscribed to their Amazon Prime program.

Among the many holiday classics featured, there were also original tracks featured—one such being Liz Phair’s “Ho Ho Ho.”

The playlist is currently available to stream here. You can also purchase individual tracks, including “Ho Ho Ho.”

I’ve always wanted to write a dystopian Christmas song. Holidays are a time of emotional turbulence, of unpredictable highs and lows. The retail and advertising sectors bill it as the greatest time of the year, but some seasons you are saddled with a real clunker! I find that both touching and funny. I tried to contrast chirpy, cheery elements with a depressing story line, a là David Sedaris’s “SantaLand Diaries,” the Waitresses’ “Christmas Wrapping,” and that timeless classic, “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.”
