This week on HARK, we’ve got two songs with the same title and very different stakes. By request, we cover “Santa Please” by Bill Medley, a tale of alcoholism, regret and reconciliation at Christmas that leaves us troubled. Then, we discuss “Santa Please” by Toni Braxton, which is basically just four minutes of the singer sexily asking to speak to the manager about travel logistics. The manager is Santa Claus.
The ranking music in this episode is “Please Daddy Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas” as performed by The Decemberists.
Thank you to Misty for requesting the Bill Medley song!
