Straight No Chaser, ‘The 12 Days of Christmas”, “The Christmas Can-Can”, “Wonderful Christmastime feat. Paul McCartney”

I’d never heard of Straight No Chaser until a few years ago when their song, “The 12 Days of Christmas” came on the radio. I laughed so hard that I cried, and then I binge-listened to the song all through the holidays, forcing my family and friends to listen along, too. Most grumbled and rolled their eyes when I said, “Hey! You have to listen to this version of “The 12 Days of Christmas!””

Trust me when I say, this is no ordinary version of “The 12 Days of Christmas”. It’s an awesome blend of the original song with comedy and mixed with “Africa” by Toto. Trust me- your guests will love it, especially if you need a little comedic relief after Aunt Kathy and Uncle Horace go on and on about Trump and building the wall.

"Christmas, Christmas time is here, And Christmas songs you love to hear Thoughts of joy and hope and cheer, But mostly shopping, shopping, shopping Christmas, Christmas time is here, The sleigh bells and the red-nosed deer Songs and songs we love to hear All played a thousand times each year Heard this same song twenty times And it’s only Halloween (Joy To The World) (I saw three ships come sailing in on Christmas Day on Christmas Day) It’s not even cold outside (deck the halls with boughs of holly)"
