Listen here.

Now we move into a somewhat more rollicking mood. I've always liked the sing-along, call-and-response feel of this song. Thanks go out to my friend Shannon, who put it on a Christmas mix some years back and reminded me of its existence.



Also, I prefer Bruce Cockburn's rendition of "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" to that of the Barenaked Ladies. THERE, I SAID IT.

There are a couple of interesting notes on the song at the bottom of this page. Apparently it hails from St. Helena. Cool...

1. "I'll Be Home For Christmas." A beautiful song, it nevertheless salutes being very far away from everyone you love. You can plan on me, but your plans will be dashed. Dashed, I tell you.

Prepare to be embittered, yet amused.
