So, you might be thinking – Geez, Abby. What kind of popular Chanukah songs are there? You got your dreidel song, and your Oh, Chanukah song, and… um… yeah, that’s about it.
I love singing. I sing all the time. I sing in the shower, in the car, when I’m cooking. I perform in Just Desserts, a singing wench group, at a medieval faire in North Central Florida. And for years, I would carol a couple times a year for the city or retirement centers or whoever would listen to me and my group. My favorite song to sing was What Child is This/Greensleeves, even though as an alto, my part consisted of repeating a harmony five times before singing the chorus. Still, it’s one of those pieces where the sum of the parts is amazing as a whole.
I found my favorite song to listen to about ten years ago. I don’t remember how I came across this – maybe someone sent it to me or I saw it as a YouTube recommendation or something. One of the reasons I love it so much is because it incorporates almost every carol I’ve ever sung. The other reason is because it’s flippin’ fantastic! Straight No Chaser’s 12 Days of Christmas.
And now for my mighty good author of the day!
A Mighty Good Man by Rebecca E. Neely
3 days. 2 people. 1 story.
‘Hank’ Jerry, a down and out writer, and Jack Darcy, a former gang leader, team up to write his story for mutual gain and end up falling for each other.
It’s not long before their romance is as hot as the copy she’s writing, but they’ve both got something to hide that could blow up in their faces, and with time running out and gang enforcers closing in, will the trust they’ve forged survive the ultimate test?
