KHRTH-FM announces 10 ten best broken-hearted Christmas songs

The Christmas season is a happy time to celebrate with family and friends, but not all Christmas music reflects the ‘merriment’ of the season. Many holiday songs are filled with heart-ache, sadness and loneliness-- but at the same time these songs are staples of the holiday season. Perhaps a guilty pleasure?

According to KHRTH – FM* below are the top ten best broken-hearted Christmas songs of the season, but we added one more, Tracy Newman's “Mama I Know You Ain’t Santa”. It's Christmas and even though she's sick and exhausted, a single mother has dressed up as Santa for her two children. The older child, a young girl is the one singing. She can see through the costume - she knows her mom isn't Santa.
