I hope you are having a happy holiday! I wanted to share the Christmas song Santa Tell Me by Ariana Grande that came out December 12, 2014 with you. I choose this song because it’s an upbeat, festive song that never fails to put me in the holiday spirit even four years later. This song makes it onto my Christmas playlist year after year even though it may not be a traditional Christmas song.
I’ve always have liked Ariana’s pop music. That is because I think that she is such a strong person for going through what she went through this year with such strength.
Every year, my friends and I get together for a Christmas party. Whenever I listen to this song, I think back to one day in December about two years ago when I got together with my closest friends to recreate the music video for Santa Tell Me. We tried very hard to get the video as accurate as possible! But, tended to find ourselves getting distracted from the task at hand. That day was filled with laughter, and of course, scream-singing. By the end of the day, we completed the video!
To me, the holidays are about having a great time with the people you love the most, and that memory indeed was a great time with friends during the holidays. Although it may not have been that similar to the original video, my friends and I had a great time recreating it and spending the time together. This song will always connect me back to that day with my friends. In general, I believe that songs sound so much better when there is a personal reason to love it or if you could relate to the song.
I hope that everyone has a great holiday filled with joy!
