Macy Gray has released a music video for her new song “All I Want for Christmas,” and it’s a laundry list of her wishes for a better society, from free healthcare to lower incarceration rates.
Between calling for better opportunities for all Americans, the “I Try” singer calls out several politicians by name: “Take Mr. Gore more seriously / And do what you can to stop global warming. / No matter what they say, Barack, you did real good, / I hope that your successor does the things he or she should. / That Mr. Trump, he’s an entertaining guy, / But let’s face it, really, is he qualified?”
It may not be as catchy as her “This Christmas” cover, but it’s certainly an original entry into the holiday music canon.
