.... Chestnuts indeed : ) Turned out well considering the turnaround time snow (and the sum of our ages). I see I've shifted a little to the right - they say that happens as you get older.

Well we're certainly not...
three wisemen (maybe wise guys...). That's for sure. Sum of our ages... now that is a scary thing, Neil.

Craig, you sing this song real good and put it together real, real good. Heheh. It's yours. Thanks for pulling this one off.

I hear!
This is really cool. It has snow's signature style, which I've come to recognize. Neat how that last guitar note lingers on. It's hard to tell where one of you ends and the other begins -- it's such a natural blending of all your styles and talents. Thanks for another holiday classic, interpreted by some of the coolest MJ talents.

He he
Amusing piece this one.

Cozy laidback style, just right for the season. I can visualize you three chestnuts around a fireplace in a small cottage up in the hills somewhere, playing your guitars, singing.

I hate to be a spoilsport...
but I like to make sure the original songwriters get proper credit, since that only seems right:
"Do You Hear What I Hear"
Written by Noel Regney and Gloria Shayne in 1962, and recorded for the first time on November 25, 1963 by Bing Crosby. The song embraced all the traditions and feelings of Christmas, and soon became another yuletide classic.

Noel Regney, who helped write the beloved Christmas song "Do You Hear What I Hear?" died last Sunday (Nov 24) in Brewster, N.Y. He was 80. He wrote the seasonal standard with Gloria Shayne, then his wife, in 1962. It was recorded by Bing Crosby and Perry Como, among others, in more than 120 versions, in musical styles ranging from jazz and New Age to funk and reggae. But Mr. Regney wrote it as a clear and plaintive plea for peace at the time of the Cuban missile crisis, in October 1962. His favorite version was Robert Goulet's. When Mr. Goulet came to the line "Pray for peace, people, everywhere," he almost shouted the words. "I am amazed that people can think they know the song %u2014 and not know it is a prayer for peace," Mr. Regney said in an interview in The New York Times in 1985. "But we are so bombarded by sound and our attention spans are so short that we now listen only to catchy beginnings." ..... "Do You Hear What I Hear?" had its origin when Mr. Regney was asked to write the flip side of a single that was expected to become a hit, according to an interview he gave in The Ridgefield Press in Connecticut. He wrote the lyrics, based on his vision of a newborn lamb. He handed it to his wife and asked her to write the tune, the reverse of their usual procedure. She was shopping at Bloomingdale's when she thought of the first music line. The finished version of the song moved the two creators so much that at first they could not sing it. "It broke us up," she said in the interview with The Ridgefield Press." I would imagine this is still covered by copyright. This is a really great version, though.

The men are back in the glen
Almost has the sound of a parody but not really. It has a funny quality about it. Kind of like Broadway Rockabilly. Is that safe to say? Or maybe VFW Folk-Rock? I dunno. I give up. What is it? Whatever it is, it sounds good. Great instrumentation and resonant vocals. Do you hear what I just heard? Peace, guys.
