Like that survey-driven songwriting thing which turns out to be the most difficult thing in the world to search for. How come people keep writing enormous numbers of new Christmas songs every year, but the most recent addition to the canon is from the 1950s? Answer: because in general, Christmas songs are pretty bad.
