What a way to start the morning. Riding with Eric to work, listening to the radio (all Christmas music, all the time! :) )

Me: "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" always sounds a little jarring to me.
Eric: How come?
Me: Well, it's talking about tidings of comfort and joy, but the music's so dark, it's almost like a dirge. Well, not quite a dirge, but it's dark...you know what I mean.
Eric: Sort of. I don't see it like a dirge, but it is a bit darker, I guess.
Me: I mean, it's...*flail* It's a mahogony-colored song that's using bright green words!
Eric:...
Me:...
Me: That really only made sense in my head, didn't it?
Eric: You're so cute.

G'morning, all!

There are people who see tones of music as specific colors, so your statement is not perhaps so wacky as it was percieved to be!

I think most of my favorite Christmas/Advent hymns are minor and somber. "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence" is my current favorite, and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" is "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" next to that one!

to save us all from Satan's power when we have gone astray...
that's actually my favorite Christmas carol--I think for exactly that reason.

Heehee. That's why I like it, too. Actually, for a REALLY creepy version, try Loreena McKennitt's rendition.
