The Best Christmas Songs Are Sad | Hardly Working


(“Christmas Time Is Here”) – [Narrator] It was the day of the College Humor Holiday Party. Jack Frost had whited the windows, but Grant was feeling blue. All around his friends were feeling merry, and he felt left out. And this year, like every year, he wondered about the
true meaning of Christmas. (bells tinkling) – Hey blockhead, whatcha doin’? – Listening to Christmas
carols to try to get in the spirit before tonight. (soft piano music) – You know, Christmas is
coming earlier and earlier every year. I feel like next year it’s
gonna be September by the time– – Great hot take from Ally. Hey, Grant! Come on over
here and nog up, man. That’ll make you feel better. – I guess. – What are you listening to anyway? (O Holy Night piano rendition) – This song sounds so sad. – It’s wintery and nostalgic. All the best Christmas song are sad. Away in a Manger, I’ll
Be Home For Christmas – [Grant] All the songs
my mom use to play for me are bummers, but like, good bummers. What Child Is This?, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – That song is literally about muddling through one more shitty year just until you can get to a good holiday. – Why would people want
to listen to something that makes them sad? – Oh, sadness is the true
meaning of Christmas. (bright piano tune) – Really? – I thought the true meaning of Christmas was
corporations selling people crap that– – Say, that’s original. Grant! Do you know this one? (light hand bell music) ♪ Oh there’s no time to drink wassail ♪ ♪ No time to break bread ♪ ♪ Because Jesus Christ is born ♪ ♪ But soon he will be dead ♪ – What? ♪ Though today he’s just a babe ♪ ♪ He will soon be in his grave ♪ ♪ Jesus Christ the baby ♪ ♪ Will die ♪ – Yikes! What about something chipper like Jingle Bells or Deck The Halls? – Boring! What about Joseph Can’t Pay His Bills? Or Angels Hear The Shepherds Cry? – Oh! How about There’s
No Water In Bethlehem? (excited urging) – Those are tragic-sounding titles. – Those are just the religious ones. I like the radio ones anyway. Like Walking Through A Winter Graveyard is so pretty! – Bing Crosby. Christmas While There’s
No Wheat is a classic! – Oh my god! I love his later stuff. Like the album he wrote
for the one time a year he sees his kids. – You mean Songs For The One
Time A Year I See My Kids. Then there’s the country stuff. A Gift From My Boss Parentheses
A Pink Slip is charming. – I love Economic Inequality Will Kill Us Dot Dot Dot On Christmas! – (slurring) Why would
people want to feel like that when already Christmas is just
bombardment with advertising? – Great roast. Let’s do this one! (bright piano jingle) ♪ Rudolph can’t see ♪ ♪ Through prison bars ♪ (light playful tune) ♪ I bring the Christmas bells ♪ ♪ But I have no hands ♪ (melancholy piano music) ♪ Oh the needles on our tree ♪ ♪ Are much to sharp ♪ (orchestral aria) ♪ Think of all the wars ♪ ♪ In this baby’s name ♪ (upbeat jazz) ♪ Santa doesn’t visit ♪ ♪ The elderly ♪ – Hey, that reminds me of that song that me and my friends
always made fun of called Christmas Shoes. – That’s not original! – Everyone knows that song, Ally! – Hey, it’s Grant, from College Humor. Click here to subscribe to the channel.

  1. Easiest roast session in history two bags a team of ideots and a black guy get together to roast a Savage from the comments section with vids made of half ass research on a profile provided by the commenter u think u can get weeks of time it belongs to me

  2. Idc about where anyone came from I was raised on the getto! Guess what look through my picks I about all my suits guess u didn't as much research as u thought. Btw I have a suot for more than every day of the week

  3. โ€œWhy would people want to listen to something that makes them sad?โ€

    I wonder this whenever someone plays Adele…๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. didn't Jesus die when he was like 30? Idk the main point of the video kept feeling like they where bashing Jesus name but can you name a better religion that's been around thousands of years? Muslims killed and forced religion Jews r well their Jews lol and everything else is Irrlavent

  5. When people say Christmas is just a way for corporations to get cash or whatever it's the same vibe as Valentine's day is dumb like how tf r lonely are you?

  6. For the dumb people who don't know their mocking how dumb people sound when they say Jesus died and how the holiday is about cash

  7. yo so i wasn't told about santa until 3rd grade and at that point i thought the other children and teachers were either liars or stupid (both as well). I love being asian.

  8. I always hated "I'll be home for Christmas". Dude promises his family, and:

    I'll be home for Christmas.
    You can count on me.
    I'll be home for Christmas.
    If only in my dreams.

    So you won't be home for Christmas, then? Also, "Santa Baby" and "I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus" are frickin" creepy. One is about getting banged by Old St. Nick, and the other is about a kid sneaking out of his bed in the middle of the night and perving on his parents making out. Bet you're not laughing now are ya?

  9. Feeling blue? Wow, way to make this partisan, CH. This is bullshit, you guys are pushing the fake news agenda of the libOOOOH HE MEANT BLUE AS IN SAAAAD.

  10. My personal favourite depressing songs are the Coventry Carol and Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. The first one is literally a Mum singing to her kids while she's waiting for them to be murdered. The second… well, you can kind of guess it by the title.

  11. because christians know life is suffering like buddihist know life is suffering although christian say, but on a smiley face because if life suxs why not make others happy. and buddihist say show no emotion and except all things as equal. both say do the same thing every day with intent not to hurt and you will see truth . Christianity says see love in all actions. Budihism says see the truth in all actions. But the truth shows people lie all the time and Christianity says all liars are vipers . I try and be 100% honest every day and i still lie sometimes, also people call me a robot. i never realized that people literally lie every other sentence till i was very aware and committed to telling the truth

  12. is it just me, or is everyone starting to get away from succumbing to the capitalistic idea of Christmas? as someone with the unoriginal thought, im glad, may that be my true christmas gift, the realization that people are still trying to connect, and that we have the tools to not need money to do so?

  13. I don't know about Christmas songs being better if they're sad, but melancholic winter songs are definitely fantastic as proved by Stardew Valley.

  14. Imagine Christmas in an alternate world where everything is backwards so Santa Claus is just an asshole who steals all you favorite shit

  15. 1. Jesus died for our sons 2. He died as a adult 3. He came back to life
    Anyways funny as heck "I rang the bell but I have no hands" that means he had to headbut the bell

  16. Anytime I hear someone talking about Christmas being a time for corporation and advertisement, Iโ€™m going to respond the way Raph does

  17. Have yourself a merry little Christmas was much darker. It was made for the movie called Meet me in St Louis, whet

  18. Rocking around the Christmas tree itโ€™s going to be a white white Christmas Iโ€™ll be home for Christmas have yourself a Merry Little Christmas Christmas Christmas and all the other ones hundreds of Christmas songs weโ€™ve all heard 1 million times my family always listens to Elvis Presley

  19. oh no NOT JESUS HE IS THE ONE WHO DIED ON THE CROSS FOR ALL OF US WHY DO YOU WANT HIM TO DIE I DON'T LIKE THIS AT ALL COME ON GUYS I KNOW THAT CHRISTMAS IS HARD ON ME TO BUT I NEED TO LIGHTEN UP A BIT I RATHER NOT BE SAD I WANT TO BE HAPPY JESUS DIED FOR SINS HE IS THE HOLY ONE HE IS THE ONE THAT WILL HELP YOU IF YOU PRAY HE WILL LISTEN TO YOU SO BE HAPPY AND MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY (;

Four Kinds of Christmas

Four Kinds of Christmas

I like the darkness… at least it’s cheap, I keep adjusted to the gloom, the creeping doom, that soon consumes the earth in tombs, I hum its tune. Assume its tone and make my home right here in the only world we know. This world of woe. Let others throw their festive flings, I think […]
