Do you expect me to talk? No, mister Bond, I expect you to SING!

Nina’s “Do You Know How Christmas Trees are Grown?” has all the hallmarks of an overblown, terrible christmas song – schmaltzy lyrics, children’s choir, and an inane subject. However, it plays as James Bond is hunted down by Blofeld’s men in a small Swiss village, culminating in a fight in a cow bell storage shed and a timely rescue by Dame Diana Rigg. If serves as perfect counterpoint to Bond’s genuine fear in this sequence – a silly, innocuous song serving as background to imminent death. I LOVE IT TO DEATH.

Important note: I’ll probably love most of the stuff on this blog to death as well.
