Description
Two short holiday songs offered for your further detriment and insolence! First is my annual version of "Jingle Bells" re-re-remixed and mastered (whatever that means) and something called "Mistletoe & Holly".

Thanks again and hope you're all staying warm this week (11 degrees here right now--I know if I went out there my blood would immediately turn into cranberry sherbet in less than 30 seconds flat, ugh!)

Michael

Jingle Bells: Arr. MJK
Mistletoe & Holly: Bob Boyd, arranger and accompaniment
Vocals: Ol' Fruitcake Breath

Happy Christmas
Jingle Bells version is very funny! The second half is beautiful. Both done with style! Great work, Michael.

Greetings Philip!
So glad you could stop by! I know the holiday songs don't go over very well during the holidays but figured this probably will end up being on page 4 by tomorrow morning (ahem). Thanks so very much for listening and the very kind words--and Merrie Christmas to you and yours partner! Michael

Shiver me timbers!
Kenta, where's about do you live again? It says you live in Macjams City on your profile but I'm not sure if our system of measuring temperatures is the same as for cartoons (I guess it depends on how Rik is feeling at the time!) Man, you make sure to rub on the goose grease before stepping out to go to work--and thanks again sir, for your generous audience--always a boost to hear from ya Kenta! Michael

Happy Holidays Michael
You should be in Vegas. Man I am blown by the vibrancy of your voice and your production techniques are most impressive. That transition from one song to another was great. I will be playing this the rest of the year and every year thereafter. Wonderful person and a magnificent musical talent. Thank you for the music Michael!

I hope you mean the lyrics in the first song! Actually, those lyrics came from a kid in the fourth grade who taught me them. I can't recall his name now, but he had a big ol' peanut shaped head with a dent on top. Every time he came in from the rain, he had a puddle of water on his head (true!) Thanks again and happy to hear from you! Michael

Jingly!
Due to some shortsigtedness on my part, I've not listened to much MJK in a wee while. And this reminded me how silly that is. "There's more!" made me laugh out loud in particular. Excellent stuff mate. Shave and a haircut indeed! Do I need to say I enjoyed this? How could anyone not?! Good on ya squire.

Thanks Stan...
Nice hearing from you--happy you could drop by Stan! Oh, amazingly enough, I do think it's still okay to say "Merry Christmas", although in this day and age where everything is so super serious, gray and glum, you have to be careful to whom you are wishing it upon (I mean, somebody could pop a cap in your ass if you're not more discrete upon whom you wish it on!) You take care and I'm wishing you a Merrie Christmas as well! (...covers behind with metal garbage can lid...!)

Jarvoid said 2175 days ago (December 7th, 2011)
Well that was
a bonus ...a twofer...Jingle Bells dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century from where it was quite happy gliding along in the 19th ! And then a sincerely festive little ditty in the style of the crooners Messrs Crosby,Cole and Como.....although that has the ring of a yuletide mafioso hit squad as well !

Great stuff and i think that the Jarvoid hosehold festivities might have just started
now !

Cheers

I do believe you should also be writing sophisticated children's books (the kind even adults would enjoy as well)--you have such a pixie-ish and colorful way of communicating--don't ever change! Thank you mate for your generous remarks and taking time out to stop by--I really appreciate it! Michael

Ol' Fruitcake Breath,
How does one say that you are funny and generous and talented up the wazoo without repeating oneself? I never heard the first set of lyrics before. And I seldom have heard the second song. You are always sharing your breadth of knowledge and your joy. You are a crooner and an entertainer of the first order. If you could dance as well, you'd be a better looking Fred Astaire. How Broadway missed out on you, I'll never understand. Thanks, Michael.

michaeljayklein said 2172 days ago (December 10th, 2011)
Char
Oh no, I'm not exactly generous--just a "soft touch"--you are the generous one! I think Broadway missed me because when the call came in, I was working with Barnum & Bailey as a hairdresser for for the bearded lady--I also worked with "Whatisit?", one of the nicest guys around. Thanks so very much for giving this bozo one mighty big lift Char and wishing you a bright and happy holiday! Michael

Oh sure, everybody knows Jingle Bells! Thanks so very much Neil--you've made this year very special for me in being able to join you and our friends on some very fine collaborations and that that you thought of me when putting them together. Keep up the fine work you do and just in case I don't see you, wishing you and yours a most jingly and bright holiday! Michael

At least it never gets down to 11 degrees in Las Vegas. You'd do well wherever you be. Thanks for a fun pair of Christmas tunes.

Thanks O Mysterious Person!
Actually, I was born and raised in Atlantic City, another gambling resort, and I don't remember it getting down to 11 degrees there either! Glad you could stop by and appreciate your awfully kind remarks! Michael

Hi Dave
Oh yes, I've had them in my head since the 4th grade (it must have been popular as a "grass roots" kind of lyric as I see variations of it on some internet sites as well now!) I did the lyrics and arrangement on Bells, but not the other one, but glad you enjoyed them both Dave. Thanks again--and here's to a happy holiday to you and yours! Michael

Yanno, believe or not, my partner's mother in Florida makes the ALL-TIME best fruitcake. Every year, she sends us two (combined weigh: 85 pounds) from Florida and they are really good! Well, I'm enjoying a reprieve from the cold right now since I posted this thing--it's 36 degrees, so all is well! Glad you liked these two songs Peter and thanks as always for your kind support! Hope you're doing good...take care now, Michael
