TUNE The Eves - Christmas In Summertime
'Christmas In Summertime' – is a song about loss at Christmas.
Christmas is not always a fun time for everyone. Many people are grieving for loved ones who are no longer with them, or for loved ones who are too ill and sadly not going to be able to hold on until Christmas.
The narrative of the song is to recognise the sadness that people feel who are experiencing this situation, and to remember loved ones. Many people try to celebrate Christmas at different times in the year for situations like these - whether it be to have one last Christmas together, or just to celebrate at another time of year when it’s less painful. This explains the song’s title ‘Christmas In Summertime’.
“I’ll always remember, see your smile, reminisce about the days gone by. Now we - have Christmas In Summertime”.
Caroline started writing this song 8 years ago. It had 1 verse and chorus, but she couldn’t quite finish it. Little did Caroline know that life was about to imitate art - sadly experiencing the loss of her own father during Christmas 2013.
Partnering up with Marissa in 2016, the duo revisited the song; with Marissa helping to bring it to life and help write the parts Caroline couldn’t articulate at the time. Marissa lost her own father near to Christmas 13 years ago and could really relate to the narrative.
