Straight no Chaser – 12 Days of Christmas

1998

2008

So I understand that this is the actual time that the 12 days of Christmas takes place,  so why not give it a thoroughly enjoyable nod.  I learned about this very entertaining song, thanks to my blog buddy Nancy. I love their harmony, but I also like that they seem to genuinely be enjoying themselves. Thanks Nancy!

Straight No Chaser (SNC) is a professional a cappella group which originated in 1996 at Indiana University. In 2006, a 1998 video of “The 12 Days of Christmas,” gained widespread popularity and subsequently led to a five-album record deal with Atlantic Records in 2008.

The group formed in 1996 at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.  Their name was inspired by the title track of Thelonious Monk’s 1967 album, Straight, No Chaser, and is a conscious evocation of the popular American slang phrase often employed in requesting a drink. Wikipedia
