“Out in the Cold, Wild, Yonder”

Welcome to the third day of Snobmas, and the first actual article since coming up with this crazy idea!  Today’ I’m going to review Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls’ song on Jingle Spells 4 (which you should buy, by the way), “Out in the Cold, Wild, Yonder”.

So, here is my original review of the song, both as a refresher and preparatory for the following comments, as well as a cheap way to boost the word count of this article.

Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls – “Out in the Cold, Wild, Yonder”: Very very pretty, almost breathtakingly so, but not overly… interesting.  It’s the “Secret of Kells” of holiday-themed wizard rock songs – pretty and even engaging at times, but ultimately lacking a point or focus.  Nevertheless, it’s the sort of song to put on and zone out watching the snowflakes drift down.  A brilliant way to open the album, and a nice cap on Christian’s wizard rock career.

In response to this, Christian posted the following comment:

Hey Mr. L, could you expand on “ultimately lacking a point of focus”? I’m confused as to what you mean.

So, I read the comment, and though, “Huh. What did I mean by that?” And so I sat and thought about it for a long time, and continued to think about during the following day, and came up with a series of points.  And then I sat down do to this interview, and find out that I never said “ultimately lacking a point of focus” – I actually said “ultimately lacking a point or focus” (my emphasis).  So now all my beautiful points are useless and unnecessary, thanks to the fact that CHRISTIAN LIED (make #ChristianLied trend).  See you tomorrow.

    Maybe if you listened to the lyrics instead of zoning out you’d see why it was interesting, particularly at “Time stands still in moments when I think of all that I’m doing this for, more than love or friendship true . . .” How often do people acknowledge Harry’s consciousness of his own destiny?

      For once, when I said it wasn’t interesting, I was talking more about the music, and not the lyrics. And yeah, I’ve tried listening to the lyrics, and I get the general gist of them, but the music is just a barrier for me. It’s not a bad song by any means, and there is definitely a time and a place for zone-out songs, and it doesn’t mean they’re bad songs at all. Also, the chorus is pretty catchy and interesting, and the lyrics for the chorus are the only ones I really remember.

      Approving this one just because it managed to get past the normally very competent WordPress spam filter and wasn’t flagged as spam or anything. GOOD FOR YOU, BUDDY! #thumbsup
