Alexander Lindbäck - Santa Is Real

Norwegian singer/songwriter Alexander Lindbäck, formerly of Seven Doors Hotel and sometime member of The Jayhawks, has released a great "Anti-Christmas" single called "Santa Is Real". The protagonist finds himself in prison during Christmas, and his whole family is dead. An ambiguous tale of murder where his mom has "been strangled with gingerbread dough" and dad has "been stabbed with the very same knife he cut the turkey with", and we're left to guess whether the singer is the murderer or if it's someone else. Quite different from "Driving Home For Christmas" or "Jingle Bells", in other words, but a great little country song nonetheless.

Watch and listen
