Description
I was listening to one of those Moog Christmas records and thought i would have a go at it. It's probably less than 2 minutes total as I couldn't stand to hear it anymore. Mostly this is a joke on my wife NIcole: she is very strict about the holiday music playing non-stop in the house at this time of year (i spend a lot of time trying to find interesting holiday music as a result). I like to picture my mother in laws ears perking up when this comes on shuffle ("Oh lord, what is this).

anyone got kids who would like to sing over this? mines too young (i'll bore you with her next year).

First of all...
your lucky you don't have to drive in and shovel snow. lucky.

Second, I liked it. Different and very well played.

Third, I doubt if your wife will punch you in the arm for recording this.

well vic,
many years ago I made a conscious decision to live in a land without winter (L.A.), but now that it's 45 degrees here, i'm thinking maybe i need to move to Barcelona. Thanks for taking time out of your snow shoveling to check this out.

Actually....
I imagine your mother-in-law would be delighted with this, a fine rendition of an old Christmas favorite. Well done... thanks.

Well
I liked it too. It does have a shopping Mall sound to it, but it's different and is very seasonal sounding... so Tish-Pooh! LOL, M

Maybe
I'm not supposed to love it, but I do. I love a bizarre cover. There's a radio station here in PHX that plays Christmas music from the day after Thanksgiving until Dec 26. It's awful. My wife made a 4 CD set two years ago of off-the-beaten-path Christmas music and it was fantastic. This would have been perfect with it!
