Justin Bieber's "Mistletoe" & Three Songs About Growing Up



It's never too early to get into the Christmas spirit. Okay, it is (like, now, for instance—Seriously though, eggnog hasn't even come out yet!), so it's probably a good thing that The Biebs' first single off Under The Mistletoe, "Mistletoe" doesn't focus so much on gift g-i-v-i-n-g as it does on k-i-s-s-i-n-g.


Yep, the rumours are true. If his new "deep" voice hasn't tipped you off yet, the lyrics in "Mistletoe" are a big giveaway that our little Justin is growing up:


I don't wanna miss out on the holiday / But I can't stop staring at your face / I should be playing in the winter snow / But Ima be under the mistletoe


Mistletoe, eh? Lets hope Shawty Mane ate a candy cane before partaking in any "mistletoe-ing."


While listening to "Mistletoe" we couldn't help but think of some of our favorite "coming of age" anthems. Wonder if JB used any of these for inspiration:



1. Dammit - Blink 182




But everybody's gone / And I've been here for too long / To face this on my own / Well, I guess this is growing up


2. When I Grow Up (To Be A Man) - The Beach Boys



When I grow up to be a man / Will I dig the same things that turn me on as a kid? / Will I look back and say that I wish I hadn't done what I did? / Will I joke around and still dig those sounds?


3. Im Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman - Britney Spears



I'm not a girl, not yet a woman / All I need is time, a moment that is mine / While I'm in between / I'm not a girl


I feel old now. Brb, rummaging through old photo albums!
