I just realized there are no videos here of Straight No Chaser. I’m not sure how that happened, since these are funny and really well-done.
I know these aren’t new, but if you haven’t heard/seen them, you should check it out. Even if you have seen these already, they’re worth seeing again. FYI, the group is putting out new music, but here are their two classic Christmas songs.
First is “The Christmas Can-Can (Animated Version)”. Someone made a video to go with the funny lyrics.
If you haven’t seen them perform it live, it’s amusing, too, and you can watch it on YouTube here: Straight No Chaser – The Christmas Can-Can (With A Special Greeting).
Lastly, here’s “The 12 Days of Christmas”, as only Straight No Chaser can sing it.
FYI, if you’re wondering what “can-can” refers to, it’s a high-energy and physically demanding dance. The tune used is from Jacques Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld. (Yes, I had to look that up. I knew it was an old song, but didn’t know the actual name of it.)
