Christmas Carols: Don’t Shoot Me Santa

Leave a comment

With a band name like “The Killers” how can you not have a holiday song about a vengeance seeking, pistol-packing Santa Claus?

Don’t Shoot Me Santa is the warm Christmas tale of a guy whose been “killing just for fun” as he bargains with Santa to spare his life because his victims “…had it coming.” Apparently Brandon Flowers sees Santa less as a benevolent gift giving type and more as a judge and executioner of bad deed doers.

The song is a bit rockabilly with dialogue and a completely random and totally demented foray into mariachi in the middle. And if that wasn’t awesome enough – how about Brandon sock puppets and cheesetastic Christmas sweaters?:
