Christmas Tunes Part III

It's Christmas Eve! Some of you may be in a "Bah-humbug" kind of mood, with all the Christmas gatherings, shopping and, yes, annoying family members - we all have them. My hope is this awesome song will put a smile on your face.

Straight No Chaser is not your everyday a cappella group. Formed more than 12 years ago at Indiana University, the group is "neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch" as its website states. Original member, Randy Stine, said on the group's website, "We take the music very seriously; we just don’t take ourselves too seriously.” Straight No Chaser has truly transformed the image of the a cappella group for the modern music scene.

"The Christmas Can-Can" is just a fun song to listen to. Beyond that, the song is also witty and addresses many of the same thoughts that go through our heads during this time of year. It'll definitely give you a reason to laugh. Enjoy!
