Yay! It’s my favorite time of year!
And here, to get the month started, is Pentatonix with a cover of the 12 Days of Christmas One thing about the 12 Days of Christmas is that most of those gifts aren’t really that impressive. I mean, what am I going to do with a bunch of drummers drumming after the holidays? And do they just keep on drumming through the whole month? That’s going to get annoying.
I do like the diamond rings, though …. oh wait. They’re golden rings, aren’t they? For some reason, I always remember them as being diamond rings. Heh heh.
I do like Pentatonix, though I typically hate anything that’s a cappella. Like, I’ve always had this fear that I’ll be out somewhere and suddenly, an old timey barbershop quartet will appear out of nowhere and start singing and they’ll be really bad but I’ll be obligated to stand there and listen to them until they finally stop. That’s actually one of my number one fears. Don’t ask me why I have this fear, I just do. I’m also haunted by Bo Bice’s decision to go a cappella during the finale of America Idol because I think that decision led to him losing to Carrie Underwood. So, as you can see, I have my reasons for dreading a cappella in general.
But Pentatonix is pretty cool, I think. They’re the exception to the rule. Kind of like how folk music is the music of evil people, except for Bob Dylan and Arlo Guthrie.
