The ultimate stocking splitter (for those who still wear stockings).



  • Petros Linardos says:

    This masterpiece made my day. Thank you.

  • Greg Bottini says:

    Love it. Absolutely love it.

  • Karl says:

    lol. Good one. I liked it – except for the 12 tone banjo solo.

  • Jennifer Hllman says:

    Brilliant! but let’s not forget the handful who made dodecaphony work. A real musician can succeed within any confines. It’s the charletons who wasted our time.

  • Bone says:

    Really cute!

  • geoff says:

    Better than the music in some stores over the Christmas period.

    • Petros Linardos says:

      When well done, Christmas music can sound wonderful. The Jessye Norman concert in another blogpost is a prime example.
      Unfortunately, Christmas music done in bad taste is ubiquitous.

      My youtube dream is a video of a mailman singing a twelve-tone melody. Alas, I don’t have the guts to approach my wonderful local mailman with such a proposal. I can only hope that some day a voice student will take a gig in mail delivery and pull it off.

      “The three greatest composers since Joachim Raff”!!! How many people catch that I wonder? Too funny. Thanks for posting.
