Dan Fogelberg’s “Same Old Lang Syne”: Is It a Christmas Song?
Erin and I argue every year. Is “Same Old Land Syne” by Dan Fogelberg really a Christmas song?
She (and lots of others) say no. I, on the other hand, while admitting that the classic tune certainly “samples” the New Year’s standard, always ask, “When is the snow falling?” Fogelberg’s lyrical answer, of course, is…Christmas Eve. There you go. Case closed!
Dan Fogelberg’s “Same Old Lang Syne” is, most definitely, a Christmas song. Agree or disagree, by all means, please let us know what you think!
