Sing It With Me | The 12 Pains of Christmas

The holidays are here and we’re still trying to figure out how we’re going to get it all done. You know, all the productivity stuff we talk about

S o, instead of asking you to work at something – anything – I’ve decided to give you a gift of holiday music.

Song Writers Got Nothin’ On Me

I love music … and there are a lot of great songs out there. There are also a lot that aren’t so hot … so I figured, why can’t I write a song? I got game. I got tunes. I can carry a note. Why not me?

There is a remarkable breakdown of taste and intelligence at Christmastime. Mature, responsible grown men wear neckties made of holly leaves and drink alcoholic beverages with raw egg yolks and cottage cheese in them. ~ P.J. O’Rourke

Whaddayamean, don’t quit my day job?

Oh yeah? Well, don’t say it until you’ve sung this baby!

So, let’s hit it. Sing along to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Key of D Sharp, please.
