Los Angeles Police Department – “Oh Lonely Night”

For some inconceivable reason I only really like sad Christmas songs. I was probably beaming when someone introduced me to speculation that “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” alludes to World War II, and I love “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” because it’s creepy as hell and I always envision Tiny Tim singing it while leaning on his cane. There are many others, but I am happy to add “Oh Lonely Night” to my ongoing Tolerable And Tragic Holiday Music playlist. Los Angeles Police Department was a Band To Watch back in August, and it’s refreshing to hear that Ryan Pollie is just as honest as he’s always been in this re-working of the operatic Christmas classic “Oh Holy Night.” Sure, it’s seasonal, but I could listen to “Oh Lonely Night” any day of the year.
