In his new music video, “What’s Christmas Without You,” out singer/songwriter Tom Goss gives Christmas his campy best trying to enjoy the holidays solo.
As Tom says on the video’s YouTube page, “Christmas just isn’t Christmas without the people you love.”
If you know Tom, you know he really likes joy. Not in a “Joy to the World” vein, but joy as in “laughter makes everything better.”
You know something’s afoot when he begins the clip with perfectly smooth, larger-than-life, 1970s TV gestures. In his solitude, he spots a body pillow and decides “Hey – I’m not all THAT alone.”
Dressing pillow guy up in sweater and flannel, Tom attempts all the activities we associate with the holidays: snuggling, dancing, mistletoe moments, decorating the cabin, and snowball fights.
Somehow – even though the TV hands get bigger and bigger – that Christmas magic just isn’t there.
We don’t want to spoil it for you so hit play below. We think it’s the perfect ending to a Tom Goss Christmas video.
Every day leading up to Christmas, I plan on sharing a different holiday track to help serve up that holiday spirit. Some are timeless artists you already know, and as many as possible will be up-and-coming out indie LGBTQ artists I’m excited to share with you.
Here’s hoping these posts offer you a chance to stop and enjoy the spirit of the season if only for a moment. And, maybe you’ll find some new seasonal tracks to add to your playlist.
