2007-12-20 "Christmas in Killarney"

One of my top three Christmas albums of all times is Bing Crosby’s White Christmas, first released in 1945. If you want to know my other top two Christmas albums, keep reading past the song lyrics. Bing and the Andrews Sisters, a cup of hot chocalate, and family and friends around … make for a wonderful Christmas event.

One of the songs from this album is Christmas in Killarney. Here is a link to an Irish version of the song. Hopefully everyone will have a delightful and wonderful holiday with family and friends. But we all fear the phone call late on Christmas Eve …

Christmas At The Office
aka Christmas In Killarney

The network’s down, with no e-mail
The ugliest scene I can recall
It’s Christmas at the office
And not with the folks at home

It’s tough, you know, to kiss your beau
And leave her under the mistletoe
‘Cause when the server’s down, of course
It’s gonna be time to go

The door’s already open
The boss is pacing the hall
And your ISP before you’re done
Will claim it’s not their fault

How grand it feels to click your heels
And join in the fun of the jigs and reels
I’m handing you no blarney
The likes you’ve never known
It’s Christmas at the office
While everyone’s still at home!

Oh, my other favorite Christmas albums?

One is John Denver and the Muppets A Christmas Together. and the other is Kathy Mattea’s Good News Christmas album. Then, running close behind these are Christmas albums from Harry Connick Jr, Kenny G, and Steve Wariner. Finally, if you want to hear a wonderful a capella group from Minnesota that put out a fabulous Christmas CD and DVD, check out Tonic-Sol-Fa

Merry Christmas!
