Today's Tickets @ 2 Song: "(In A) Big Country" by Big Country Trends Christmas Classics: What Christmas Means To Me

Our Christmas Classics coverage continues today with a look at “What Christmas Means To Me.”

Written by Anna Gordy Gaye, George “Horgay” Gordy and Allen Story, the track was taken to the masses by Stevie Wonder who released it on his Christmas album Someday At Christmas in 1967.

The upbeat track is getting many listeners in the mood for the festive season. Read on to see how it’s been scrobbling.

Stevie Wonder has been scrobbled a total of 20,485,086 and is widely regarded as one of the most legendary musicians and songwriters of all time.

The album Someday At Christmas has been scrobbled 161,392 times, with the track ‘What Christmas Means To Me” being scrobbled 125,335 times.

The track has been gradually moving up in Stevie’s weekly top tracks chart, with it sitting at #3 this week with 2,191 listeners. It just loses out to the title track “Someday At Christmas”, which last week counted 2,305 listeners.

Stevie’s overall weekly scrobble counts have fluctuated slightly over the past three years, hitting heights of 75,000 and lows of just under 50,000. With the Christmas season well and truly upon us, it seems he may be on his way up again:

    I have my own thoughts on “What Christmas Means to Me” (Ray(mond) Jansons and not as “Eric” or “RainbowRay” and I would like to share them with you and your listeners now.

    No poems, no rhymes, no puns, just what comes from my heart as we quickly approach Christmas.

    Christmas definately has alot to do about “giving of one’s self” as opposed to “receiving” ( I have experienced that for a while now and even when I was a kid, good natured as I was, I did that as well, including sacrifice for family).

    2. Christmas is about “helping others” not just yourself (although that helps as well, especially if you want to get somewhere or do positive things with your life)

    3. Christmas is about “believing”, not just in yourself, your family, your friends (good luck with that one and thank your lucky stars if you have friends you can believe in), but also in believing in better times ahead instead of being skeptical (thinking more postive about things, in your family and in life in general). The world is not coming ot an end and as the saying goes, “don’t believe EVERYTHING that you hear or read”. The media tends to exaggerate and make mountains out of molehills alot of the time.

    4. Christmas is about “love and being in love ” (I should know because I’m experiencing REAL/TRUE LOVE for the first time in my life (better late then never) and it is goddamn FANTASTIC in my opinion., but boy do you have to hold on to it, each and every day and work at it to make it grow stronger each and every day, which I have.

    4. Christmas is about “miracles”, because as Elvis so eloquently puts it in his song “Welcome to My World”, “miracles I guess, happen now and then”, right? You read about them in the paper (a lone survivor in an earthquake or plane crash for example or a baby falling out of a window and surviving).

    5. Christmas is about “reflecting” and I have been doing that alot this Christmas season, quite alot.

    6. Christmas is holding onto the one’s who you hold dear or in my case who you “dream of hoding dear in your arms and who I love very much eventually at Graceland in Memphis one day”/ OF course that would be my one only “Fee-Fi (Fiona)”. Keep BELIEVING in MIRACLES sweetheart, you are MY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE no matter what!

    Those are just some of my thoughts about Christmas and I hope you all have a great one! I refuse to say Happy Holidays to anyone. What’s wrong with Merry Christmas and why is it so offensive to some and so damn politically correct? Nothing wrong with saying it mind you, but I find Merry Christmas to be more realistic for me.

    By the way, to all your Jewish listeners out there: Happy Hanukah!

    Ray Jansons
