Twelve Days...

Todays brings 3 very diverse video versions of a classic Christmas song.

The first is from the 1979 TV special, John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together. Just about everybody has heard this version at some point in their life or other. In fact, in most cases, I can't hear any version of this song without humming "ba-dum-bum-bum" to myself after the "Five Gold Rings" part. Yes - I am unashamedly a product of a misspent youth. I also think that most of life would be better if we all watched The Muppets more. Even if they are owned by Disney now...

The second version was sent to me by my college friend and sometime reader AMBM. This one features an a capella group from Indiana University called Straight No Chaser. These guys are good. They sound good together. They're fun to listen to. And they're obviously having fun when they sing. Enjoy.

The last version is a rather non-sober parody from Vegas lounge singer, Fay McKay, called The 12 Daze of Christmas. This video is from 2007 but the audio recording I have of it is much earlier. You may want to listen to that first. Or maybe not.
