    Hi. On Stephen Colbert's new christmas cd, is the Nutmeg song a spoof of one of John Legends own songs?

    Based on an interview with the lyricist for the songs on the album it doesn't seem to be a spoof.

    Javerbaum: Toby Keith, we knew we wanted to do a song like that, and that was written for Toby Keith because he was involved — I mean, he said he was interested back in 2007; he was pretty early on. And then, the Willie Nelson song was - I think that was written without Willie Nelson in mind, but then Willie Nelson came along, and … you know. It fits him rather perfectly. And like “Nutmeg,” there was a whole other version of it. Originally, I could see this being for somebody like Fantasia Barrino, and it would just be sung by someone, like, just the word “nutmeg” sung passionately over and over again. But we got John Legend, and he’s just an amazing soul singer and so sincere when he sings that it seemed like this was a better way to go. And it’s really … it’s a ridiculous, stupid song.
