This is really great!

They have each only one or two bottles, it must have taken quite a lot of practicing to actually play a whole tune.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I gotta get this off my chest too.

:laugh:

Ok, I'm adult, and I know not everyone is having a merry Christmas.

But are Christmas songs like this necessary?  Really?  A song about a guy waiting on line behind a child who is buying shoes for his mother, who is gonna see Jesus tonight?

Chuck,

I saw this presented as a play when I was working down in Huntsville, AL.  It bothered me quite a bit - I felt very manipulated emotionally.

Chuck, I'm sorry, but--I love  it, I think it's adorable!!


"Dominic the Italian Donkey song and video Dominick the Donkey is a well known Christmas song written by Ray [Richard] Allen and Lou Monte and first sung by Lou Monte in 1960. For decades the song was only occasionally heard. Oldies 103.3 WODS of Boston, Massachusetts and WCBS-FM in New York are common stations that play the song around Christmas . It was perceived to be too novel for the softer music stations and too old or corny for CHR/Top 40 stations. But beginning in the early 1990's, more contemporary artists began to record Christmas music. As a result, younger skewing radio stations began to feature more Christmas music on their stations, even going wall to wall on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. While there were more Top 40 core artists doing Christmas music by 1992, the stations still needed to play older artists to supplement the newer Christmas music. A few stations found this song and began mixing it into their Christmas rotations. The song got very positive feedback and as a result, this song began to gain airplay in many formats. Many people assume it was a recent recording and do not realize this song has been around for over 40 years"

Ok, it's not a Christmas song, exactly, but--

Here's the newest musical comedy short from SNL, and I have a feeling
we're going to be hearing it A LOT this week--plenty of people are going
to be irked! (It's a hoot, though!)

Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akon:

This didn't have anything to do with the holidays but it said a lot about the human condition!
May 2019 be better for us all.
