If you saw Miley Cyrus’s performance in A Very Murray Christmas, then you’d know she was basically born to sing Christmas songs. However, you probably weren’t expecting this one, which she released yesterday in celebration of the big day. It’s understandably titled “My Sad Christmas Song,” and perfectly captures the sad side of the Christmas season for those who don’t get to spend it with the ones they love.
Of course, it does have the Miley twist. She talks about being on the naughty list and offering Santa a beer, so it should come as no surprise that it’s a little NSFW. However, it comes as a breath of fresh air for those of us who had maybe had enough of the same eight, cheery Christmas songs over and over again, especially if circumstances didn’t allow us to get into the spirit.
No matter how we spent Christmas, we all have this song to be thankful for. While it may be depressing, that’s what makes it really good. The honesty of her words and her ability to address a side of Christmas we don’t often talk about does something completely different than what we’re used to.
Thanks for the present, Miley! We hope by New Years you’re back to your crazy, happy self.
Take a listen to the song below!
