Well, writing a Christmas holiday song has got to be listed as one of the toughest things to do. I wanted to write a song…like a carol…that you could hear Bing Crosby or Rosemary Clooney sing. I toiled and toiled over every detail. I think I honestly irritated my mom. She’s a pianist and knows how much of a perfectionist I am and probably got sick of my melody, chord and lyric variations. She’s my mother, but also my second worst critic. I had to let it sit for days at a time while I “stepped away” and worked on non-holiday songs.
Well, last weekend, Chris heard it, put in the “Chris factor” and that was it! I guess one thing that made me really happy is that Chris really liked it…and he’s a HARD man to please musically. We drove around in the car to hear the levels from a typical car stereo and he commented on how he honestly liked the song. (PTL!!)
Now, to C.C. and the U-Turn Café. C.C. was the first podcaster to play the song and he is AWESOME. Not only that, I am so honored to be on the #5 show because the other people on the cast are F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!! Matthew Ebel, Chaz, and Allison Crowe…WOW! They rock! So, even if you don’t like my song, please listen to the podcast for the other artists. THEY ROCK vocally and musically!!! I am truly honored and humbled!!!
Here’s a link to the U-Turn Cafe. It's podcst show #5:
Be blessed and safe on your return travels home!
Oh and C.C., my eyes change colors with what I wear…so sometimes they are blue and sometimes they are green! (Ya have to listen to the podcast to get it…)

Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
