There are probably more songs about Christmas than any other topic (excluding, possibly, love). Why then does radio station WASH-FM, which plays all Christmas music all the time from Thanksgiving week to Boxing Day, play only the same 10 songs? Considering there are, at least 1,000 English-language Christmas songs (and instrumentals), why is it that every time I turn them on, I can count on hearing, in quick succession:

"Last Christmas" by Wham (At this point I don't care who he gives his heart to)

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" by Dean Martin (complete with German Sinterklaas pronunciation: "Rudolph mit your nose zo bright, won't you guide mine schleigh tonight?"

"Frosty the Snowman" by Willie Nelson (insert your own Willie Nelson finding his own kind of magic joke here)

"All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey (I'll be making my feelings about this song clear when I do my bit for The Twelve Days of Riftmas, part of the annual Chronic Rift fest).

Okay, WASH does play some Manheim Steamroller, but there's a lot more out there, guys.
