For some reason, I always have this image of Rilo Kiley being a happy fun party band. But when I pay attention to the lyrics, a lot of it is dark, grey and kinda sad. Even this Christmas song. I like it one a lot, it's kinda like Christmas, film-noir style. It's like, when everything goes bad and things just keep getting worse and there's no end in sight. And then you're supposed to be happy on this one day, because everyone else is. Although, I really have no idea what "Christmas cake" is supposed to be.
