Our family went to "Christmas In The Park" tonight at the Auckland Domain. Overall it was pretty fun but the choices of songs to cover were not entirely to my taste. There were too many insipid pop songs about "love", a genre I detest. Who writes this stuff? I appreciate the need to sell music to teenagers, who may think "love" is a fleeting obsession with another person, but celebrating that is just dumb. What is that compared to real, long-lasting love, that is based on self-sacrifice, not just in moments but over the long haul? Down with angsty superficial "love" songs!
