Funny take on childhood classic.

Barenaked Ladies “Jingle Bells”

What Christmas playlist would be complete without this classic holiday track.  The BNL display their sharp sense of humor on this mashed up track.  The group mixes several musical styles to create a fun track that will keep you smiling all season long.  The tune starts out as a lush ballad lulling the listener in, and with a whiplash change the track heads into polkaesque territory finishing with a mix of jazz, rock, and polka.  What makes the BNL version of this song so much fun is the alternate lyrics the group throws in.  Yes the group adds the schoolyard verse about shotgun shells and batman, with the leader singer breaking down in laughter half way through the song.  This is a fun track that only gets better with each listening!
