Let you Inrouduceso what song are wetalking weare going to be talking about Meli, Kaliki maca, which happens to beby being Crosbie? My favorite Christmas...

...did e. Now I think I had spoiled theending of the show by announcing that so loudly and proudly, but I don't careit's Christmas. I am filled with joy, but I love me so Melly Kolike Maka yeah,it's it's a quality Christmas tune and there have been numerous versions ofthe version. We're going to talk about today is the kind of holty staple frombink Crosbie and the Andrews Sisters, which is off being crosbie's, albummerry Christmas, which came o onethousand, nine hundred and fiftyfive. However, the the song itself, Melicholiqui Maca, was written byRobert Alex Anderson. One thousand nine hundred and forty nine, now quicklittle back story, Bing Crosbie, as actually a golf partner and friend ofRobert Alex Anderson and then Anderson played the song for crosbiing andCrosbee liked it so much. He recorded his own version of it, which I thinkwound up being in one thousand nine hunded and fifty nd non thousand ninehundred and fifty five. It became part of Crosbi's famous compilation, AlbumMery Christmas. So that's the that's! The one we're going to talk about today,the one off of Crosbie's. Merry Christmas, album and I'll tell you what,when it comes to the Singat Christmas songs, man being just nailed like everysingle one of them yeah, he really did he's known for him. You know I's kindof like boroug lives when you think of these two names, you automaticallythink. Oh, this has to be a Christmas record. Yep Yeah Bing is crushed all the Christmas songs. Nowthey, what are some of your memories of this particular song? Well, I am goingto give you a double wammy on this drew because I'm Yep sure I've heard itplenty as a child. Considering it came out many many years before I was born, but I happend to see a little film inthe movie theaters way back when, in the late s called national lampoonsChristmas vacation was at age appropriate, absolutely not, but stillmy pops took me to go, see it and there's a scene in that film E. Are youfamiliar with the movie at all? Drew? Oh, it's top three! Okay! I love alltime for me for Christmas movies Ye...

...this is w now. I know why I hang outwith you, because if you don't like Christmas vacation, there is somethingseriously wrong with you, but the whole he's fantasizing aboutthe pool in his backyard. This whole scene o the movie and they play MeliKaliki Maka and for some reason at that time, that song stuck with me- and Ibelieve mostly and much like you drew you- can relate to this growing up onthe east coast. Christmas time sure it's wonderful to spend time with yourfamily and friends, but climate wise. As far as weather, it's miserable sucks, it's terrible! I don't likebeing cold. I moved Awale from all that you, unfortunately I still in the thinkof it, so to hear a song about a HawaiianChristmas to me with such an appealing, wonderful idea. I just couldn't getenough of it. It warms the heart it does, especially when you live in thefrozen Tundra. That's right! Yeah! We just got we. I tell you what man welooked out because tha, we just got a storm over last week and we weresupposed to get like twelve between twelve to twenty inches and we onlywound up getting about eight. So I was like all right. That's that's good!It's like that's like good! That's fine, anything beyond that! Anything! Beyondthat! It's it gets to be a complete shit show, but you fool you yeah! DamnFol, I haven't seen a flake of snow in years and it's wonderful is a fantasticthing. I don't care if I ever see another flake of snow in person. Ifit's on TV, that's fine, but I don't want to touch it. I don't want to cleanit. I don't even want tot touching my skin. Okay, no more snow. I don't hateit, I just hate when you get so much and you know it it just gets you knowthings get just like roads are getting shut down. That's when I guess to bemess I mean not like we. We really going here anywhay right now, but but Imean for me yeah the pretty much. The same thing like I feel, like I probablyhad heard it on the radio before Christmas vacation came out, butI feel like Chrisis vacation, probably...

...gave it a little bump and popularitysure due to its placement in that movie, which and h like I said that movie isin fact fantastic, very quotable right. I love that movie, you a you, have towatch it every Christmas season and I love that. Tell you what Dave Ilove that movie. So much now Clark Grizzold they lived in Chicago. He wasa big blackhawks fan right. Personally, I was a big. I Still Lim I still likethem, they're, not a team anymore, but I'm a Heartford Walers Fan, okay,they're, technically they're, now the Carolina hurricanes, but I still go for the Harfer Walers and Ilove them so much and I love the Christmas vacation movie so much. Iactually had a custom Walers Jersey, maid and I wore it to Christmases ago,get out of dodge. We had. We had FAML T wasn't like a big family Christmas, butwe had my parents up and my brother and sisterinlaw over and we yep. I had mycustom whalers Jersey, that's great, drew thats M, I mean thiss a totalClark griswold moment ther righteous. My brother is the most difficult guy onthe face of the Earth to buy, for he already has everything he needs, and sothis year I actually ordered him a custom mate and I know, listen, I'm aBoston guy. My brother, we bleed Boston, but I got him hate the movie authenticClark, Grizwald Black, Hawk Jersey, okay man, he loves it and he wore it.While he was actually decorating his house for Christmas. So I said thereyou go as long as you don't fall off the roof. Everything is aokay yeah,that's that's a good! That's a great gift here was awesome because I'm anawesome guy. You know what I'm the most thoughtful person on the face of theearth, maybe even in the universe. I don't know it's debatable top three atleast Oh yeah yeah, but I'll tell you what speakingof numbers and being in the top being Crosbie's version has been streamedover sixty seven million times on spotify and per billboard. This songpeked,...

...like the other day, which is weird you know this song, iswhat seventy years old. Almost this song peaked at number. One hundred andsixteen, which I didn't even know like that was possible because it's like thehot one hundred and like why is there one hundred sixteen band? I pulled itup. I I allright looked at. I looked, I pulled up on billboard's website likeit was there hmm and, and it paked at number undred nd, sixteen on December,Sixteenth, two thousand and twenty so a couple days ago. Well, I assume thereare other Christmas songs that are also peeking, because people this year,maybe more than ever, need some happiness in their lives, and Christmassongs tend to provide that for a lot of folks, yeah and N I'll. Let me ask us aLi little quiziere. What do you think? What do you think the number one songwas on the hot one hundred last week you were asking the wrong, because I'm not really hipper down orwith it, with the kids in their Hula hoops and Nintendo Games, I'm not surewho's hot right now and WHO's. Not so I'm just going to take a wild stab here.Is that does that work for you? Do it too legit to quit MC Hammer? That's athat's a great choice! Thank you, thit's, a great choice close, but you know what you were sayingearlier was actually pretty spot on number one. You know we you were saying:People are listening to a lot of Christmasmusic. Now the number one song was actually all hiy went for Christmasasyou no right carry no, no, no, no! No! No! No come on an SOE nauseates me and I know we'retalking Christmas, we're talking happiness and then you just brough upthe one Christmas song. I'm like you know it doesn't do anything for me. Doesn'tmove the needle actually probably moves the needle in the opposite direction.You know at least they didn't say, Hey Sana by the fucking Wilson, Phillips,okay, true, I suppose yeah all right. Well, I don't know it's not really a hill, I'm willing todie on. So, let's move on Yeah. Now. How does this song really talk about?You Know How's the song compared to other songs on the album. It fits yeah,they're, all Christmas songs, so yeah...

...you got in Crosby the Fang Crosbie. Youknow something that Bing Crosbie did is in the late S A. I found this very interesting. He did a duet with Davidboy, yeas a little drummer boy. That's great version es! It's Okay and youknow I'm a huge BOI fan, but it's not like for me it's so like wow, oh my God.I think I'm more impressed by the whole kind of different cultures or thedifferent. Basically, you talking to a guy talking about a guy. Rather whomade his career dressing up in dragons haid. He came from another planet withfreaking litly White Bread, BIN crosby. You know what I mean an old man. Ithink I was such an interesting collaboration. That's that's what I'vebeen kind of alluding to my whole ramble here, but that's really bizarre,but it wasn't bad yeah. No, I like that version to, but yeah. I think if youasked me, welwe'll talk about our favoriteChristmas songs, I'll mention it there yeah. I do have to say this, though theWilson Phillips Little Drummer boy better than the Crosbie bowy versionyou're joking. I am joking thats. The president of the tree me and my gagHaha, don't ever say that that the Brantley Gilbert version was great. AwBrantley Gilbert can really knock out a Christmas ditty. That's not funny eah.I know it's not funny at all anyway. Okay Av! Now what you're talking about?What are we talking about? Melicalihi Macka? Yes, yeah, so I mean lyrically,I mean Meli. Caliqui Moke just means Merry Christmas. That's it its all! Youneed! That's pretty much I feel like. I don't need to dig into this like aFogoberg Song, but yeah this one's just be very Christmas, pretty basic! It'shappy! It's like a nice greeting M Yep. You know and Thit's Hawaii an greeting,that's really it. This song is far from revolutionary. There's no ring going onin this song other than, as I mentioned before, with with mebeing raised...

...on, you know, frozen earth. Yeah isthat traditional Christmas songs or standards usually mention you get. Youknow you need the snow. You need the cold need. You know. Oh baby, it's coldoutside what have you this one was just a different theme. Itwas like. No, we don't need that crap Christmas is here in its warm andbright. You know what I mean. It's wonderful in Hawaii and iave neverspent a Christmas in Hawaii, but I would love to do so. So if any of yourlisteners want to donate to the cause and send us to Hawaii for nextChristmas, please do so right now, yeah thatd be great. I will gladly acceptthat Gift Yep. We will broadcast from Hawaii on Christmas Day twothousand andtwenty one. That's right. Yeah I mean last year yeah so yeah we hove oPennsylvania and yeah. We get, we could snow. You know around the holidays, Owintertime, that's what happens up in e northeast, but last year we took ourkids to Disney and we stayed at the villages in Florida which, by the wayit's fantastic. I love the villages. They are glorious. I just drive aroundthe golf cart and drink beer all day, go to happy our at like five o'clockand you're like home in bed about like eight or nine, it's perfect, but I knowit was nice though, and like a lot of the houses were decorated, but it was.You know, like seventy eighty degrees, it was beautiful and I had no problemwith their not being snow. So I'm, okay with a nice warm Christmas greetingthat works for me, yeah. I just hear far too often like people that aresimilar to me, where they ad that now sucks. I hear that snow and then theychanged their tune. A little bit I go well, I wouldn't mind a couple flakesfor Christmas and I say nop, you can't have it now. You didn't wantit. You got to stick you get to stick to your guns. You just cannot rightcannot ever want to see that damn snow, yeah myeah, I don't mind Ityou know Idon't need to have snow for it to be a Christmas. That's not really high on my priority list.Well, people who are not from the east coast or from a place that does snow,maybe you know like Colorado or...

...whatever they're, not really familiar eitherwith the whole cleanup process of snow. So the first salad point is all niceand looks like it does again on television, Wel well beautiful wayChristmas and then, after the snowplous hit its black and gunky and gross andslushy and sits around for a couple weeksdepending on how yeah warmer it is an sits around for a couple weeks, likeyour brother, inlaw, the one whos unemployed who says you just can't findthe right position to management. You know what I mean just no. Yes, now it's overrated m! It'soverrated but yeah I mean like lyrically Lik, like you said, thes songdoes not going to wow anybody necessarily that's a fun and that'sanother thing too right. You know most Christmas songs are usually you know.They probably come in like under like three minutes, usually like two and ahalf minutes I feel like is a good Christmas song, sometimes even shorterthan that, unless your Fokelberg and you drop a five minuter and it'sglorious, Tbut Yeah, I think the only one thatmight be the only songs that use your are longer: Tha Wet the twelve days ofChristmas or whatever. Okay, that's just because there's like a millionthings they have to get through, but otherwise, usually songs are prettyquick and Millik. Liki Macas are pretty quick song and it's good get o the ointo the pointment y yeah. Indeed, exactly so speaking of getting to thepoint, why don't we do that Dave Yeah? So what do you think? Well, Meli ClikiMaka by Bin Crosbi? Do you think this is a legit hit or a Song Gong wrong?Well, I kind of you know: Jump the shark there in thebegining of the show adminute it's my favorite Christmas song, because it's akind of tune, I wouldn't mind standing around the fire Snappin, my fingers,while I'm wearing a ugly turtle, necxt sweater, maybe popping open a couple:chestnuts mingling with family and friends. You know whatever. But again I like I like the theme of it. Ilike it so much and its upbeat s happy...

...another real key component, any kind ofChristmas song. If you ask me it's easy to follow along with easy to sing alongwith as well and unlikes, you know other songs wit, they just say MeryChristmas or happy holidays. Here you get something more fun to say with MeleKaliki Maka just rolls off the tongue. Doesn't it so for me, dos this song isabsolutely a legit holiday hit. Now on to my boy, drew who's feeling blue,because you get snow on you I' Ot, I'm not feeling I mean I film blue ecause,like two thousand and twenty. I was just trying to make up Soit Rynd, okay.I was trying to case okay casy case in my way into your verdict. You know,forgive me for trying to be cool daddyis, a shadow yeah Heoo, stamumlove shadow yeah. I mean this is a legit Christmas.It I'm just GOINGTO I'll lead off with that yeah. I've said it before on otherepisodes with other songs right like like with thriller. If you don't havethriller on your Halloween playlist, you do not have a Halloween playlist ifyou leave off Melicaliki Maka. If you leave that off your Christmas playlist,you have no Christmas playlist, namely the Bing version. I honestly wouldn'trecommend any other versions just stick with being. I think I saw Jimmy Buffetversion. I didn't listen to it, I don't want to, but the bing version. I meanthat's Te, the test of he time for like seventy years and and there's no reasonto change that. It's good stuff, it's a legit, hitright on briht right on. Well, I mean we are in accordance here. We agreewhich is wonderful to you, know, be in the season ofhappiness, and we are you know in union if you will, but what about? We are thefans, let's see what the fans have to say. So you know what I'm okap this number. Ninety four percent of the fans saidthat this is a legit hite wow. That might is that, like our highestpercentage Maye, it's got to be up...

...there. It's got to be up there. Wow alot of people. Are I they're not getting Meli Kalicke mack it out,that's for sure that bring it on baby yeah yeah. I think I want to say this is how we do it by Monto. Jordanwas pretty high as well Huh. I don't think it was ninety four percent. Idon't know if you've ever had a ninety percenter before well, we wanl tellJordan and bing crosby. Those are the tickets right there, Theygotan in handyeah. You Know Ho who to thunk it speaking OA little dremmer boy withDavid Bowy and Bang Crosbie Mons. Hell, Jordan should have done a song withbeing Crosbie and the world would have been set on fire. This is how wecelebrate Christmas. Yeah Fala, Lalalayeyea Noi, would definitely download thatsong for sure absolutely t a that'll make my Christmas playlist moving ice,but speaking thof Christmas, playlist Dave. Let's, let's talk about ours, you knowwe talked about. We talked about same old, lengt sign byDan Fogeberg last episode, Boke Cliki Maka this one. What why don't you giveme your top three or just some of your favorite Christmas songs? All Timedoesn't matter what year doesn't matter by WHO? But what are? What are yourfavorite Christmas songs? Wow, that's a great question and I mean there's a lotof tunes out there and the thing is: Is I'm more accustomed to listening tosome of the standards? Speaking of good old being that have been around for along long time? But today I will bring up some things that are, or I willbring up some songs that are more recent, maybe but I mean they're old,but I'm old too. So maybe you get my drift here. My Snow Drift, but I don'tbelieve it's truly Christmas. Unless I hear the songs on the radio, one of which would be happy Christmas war is over by JohnLennon and Yoko Ono, I'm not sure. If you're, a fan of that song drew to goon, yeah is a good one. He says not great one is a good one. Okay! Wellmaybe this will take a LO, your ivor, well ther. The reason why I'm alwayslike so I think the song starts off ise...

...like so this is Christmas and what haveyou done and I'm like I'mneenly, not enough. John elthemessage is good man. You Know W. No, it has over one. If we all believe inworld peace, amazing things can happen if we're kind to one another and notJubsolutel eadiin out for our own self interests and which happens to be it'samazing. To me, too. This song has been out for so long, and so many peoplelike like a song, but nobody gets tha. Damn Message: No, Oh, no everybody's out, I'm notgoing to get into it. Yes, let's, let's keep it nice and friendly and happyhere, ery Christmas, Yep, okay, no, that's a good song! That is a good song.I I agree all right. You want to do one and one you just want me to keep goingbecause again I was mentioning. I was going Na hit you with another lovelylittle track here, but I mean feel free to jump in. We can bounce back andforth. Maybe we pick the same yings. Who knows that's fhyn yeah. I mean Ithink, it's safe to say same old Lang, zign and do they knowit's Christmas time are not on my list, but I would say some of my favorite. Ithink my number one is snoopy's Christmas by the Royal Guardsman. MyDad is a big fan of that song. I'm a big fan of that song. It's just coolman. You know it's a good tune. I think that came out like in the S. it's s fun.You know we here on it's like the he's, like the Red Baron. You know, yeah,whatever it's fun mobicle I get. I got TA mentione. I like how we started. Iwent with John Lennon: You went with snoopy Yeah Nice, real nice yeah, okay,at's a great what else? What else you got? I am going to say, and this wouldbe a very popular pick, I believe with our listeners. If we ran a poll today,it might even get over ninety four percent to be hoest with you, but whatabout last Christmas by Wam Yeah? That's a good one, thit'sa great one! Yeah! That's that's all my it's! I wrote down likeabout! Maybe ten or so I have my top three, but then I has kind of listed abunch of others and last Christmas it did make my top three, but isdefinitely oh. I love it on that list. Soais on that Lis, it's so IABSOLTEAN.With Christmas and heartbroken love...

Song. I mean come on that GeorgeMichael You, the best we miss. Oh, that's a good one m all right. What are you get nowGarfield South Park or something? What do youhave I'm going to go? HEATHCLIFF THE THE BE List Gorfield? No, my number two,I would say, is the little drummer boy by the Harry Simian Corral, really yeah.I so growing up. We I mean driving back and forth to church. You know drivingover to families. You know visit our relatives when I was a kid. We had thattape and it would be in the car- and you know, making like a y know because,like our relatives lived about maybe a half hour away, so you know you get alot of tunes in Ou Ow, a lot of card time and yeah Harrys Semeon Korral. Wehad that tape and I mean I could probably list every single song on thattape on this list, but I picked one and then kind of spread the love a littlebit so yeah, the little gemmer boy by the Harry semio Corral Hm, very good,I'm coming with all the obvious choices and you're hitting the deep dives deep dive drew. Well, I mean there's some of the someof the obvious ones are good too. I'm not. You know I and Kno. I I like theseare the ones I like there's I have. I have maybe a couple Ithink that might be popular, but what we'll keep going I'll, probably you'll,know what, when we get there but hat's. What's your next one hm well for this picturew, I had to go againwith a nice chap from Liverpool. I really had to go with another batle andthat's pall, MC Cartney singing wonderful Christmas time, because it'svery trippy and it putts me in the mood to in fact have a wonderful Christmastime. Do you like that songdrew? You know I can never remember the lyrics tothat. One seemplea Hav wonderful Christmas time and it's jues that howthat goes, yeah and it's trippy is hell like we had the episode about theFlaming Lips, and this reminds me I don't know if they ever covered this.If they have it, they should, I don't...

...believe they have, but this song ispretty. I don't. I think Sir Paul could have possibly been up to some hijinkswhen he you know compose this this song. But for me it's cheery, it's happy andit's a little offbeat and different, and it always puts me in a good mood.Ell Yeah, I mean it beats the message in your head: we're simply having awonderful Christmas time and if you, even if you weren't and you listen tothat song by like the GH seventh time, he said we're simply having a one forChristmas leep an then you're like you know, then, like you know what I amyeah. I guess I am. The Moon is right: Spirits up y you're into it. You knowwhat I mean and by the Weay. This is also his wings era, so Paul McCartney and wings. I want tomention that, because I just did say Paul McCartney in my little crappyBritish accent. Maybe some of our listens with Hay. Don't forget aboutwings, and I won't I didn't that's. That's that's a good tune. That's fun!Yep, I'm down with that one! whooll dude all right, my my so this is, Ifeel, like my top three is pretty solid here. I think. As far as you know, theorder of it- and I feel like that is my top three. Ifanybody ask which we kind of are, this is definitely is my number threehere. I would say I'm going with Santa Claus's coming to town by BruceSBRINGSTON. Oh Wow, you know is that's amazing, because I like that son a lotand when I sing that song I always embellish like I was Bruce Springsteamyeah. You know I mean Sayi. I causes comeinto town. You know like your mid,like coronary or something when you sing it so yeah. That's that's a goodpick, but you know what it's funny. Is You bring it up earlier? How you likethe shorter Christmas songs? I almost feel like, and I don't have t e thetrack listing in front of me now, because this wasn't like preplanned oranything we're just you know Wen id loose in limber with his whole segment,but I felt like that was a long one yeah his versions a little bit longer.You know it has all. I have ever here actually yeah forabout four and a half minutes...

...for that one, but yeah it does that onedoes go a little bit longer because then it gets to the end and he has likethe Santa Claus laughing there, but I'm okay with it. It's the boss, man, I'mfine with with whatever he wants to do. Okay, he can get away with anything.Brice Brinr Dan can just do whatever the hell he wants, especially a Chris.Yes, especially Christmas tone, that's a pretty good pick! Yeah. Do you haveany more? No, I only came with a few plus the Milli calike Maka, and I think,okay. That was enough for now. You know what, when we originally talked aboutkind of bringing up some our r favorite Christmas songs, I I was looking aroundjust out of curiosity to see for mebe. I forgot something. There are a lot ofcontemporary versions of old songs. I know you had mentioned that who didMeli Cllicki macka as well. You said Jimmy Bucky, Buffet Yeah. You know Ijust kind of glazed over those, because if it's not something that reallysticks out my mind, I don't need it. I don't want it, they can just yeahreturn it just like many people will after the holiday season is over andthey get those crappy what they call the Yankee swap or the Yankee Santa.What was the whole secret Santa everybody has a different women orsomething yeah. I don't know what it's called like. You get a name out of ahat and you grab somebody something worth like fifty but think at's asecret Sanna yeah, but everybody's got a different name for it. Like I've heard people reference likedifferent titles and like what is that nd they like? Oh, it's like a Yankeeswap or it's the secret o San then like well, just call it that it'a rusty,trombo hats, a racy, Whoa, Erbin, dictionary, Sey, wor yeah. Now, okay, Nowyo know that I thinkabout yeal know what drew is getting people for Christmases, Rustywass,bottom boat anyway, yeah I mean some of the other, sohere's one right so I'll be home. For Christmas. I mean the whole storybehind that song. It's kind of a depressing song a little bit, but it'sstill pretty song and and again bing...

Crosbie's version of that. I think forme, is my favorite. Rascal flats did diversion of this. SoI'm guessing you can figure out what Song I have not listened to. Is therascal plats version of O Buung for Christmas yeah, but yeah? That's that'sanother good one. You know, being you know, standard rocking around theChristmas tree, but only the Brenda Lee version, which was also the one thatthey played in home alone. Holly Jolly Christmas by burl Ives O mentionedburogh earlier holly y Christmas. That's a go and that always put you IAgood mood. Here's a random one, so growing up. My sister was a big newkids on the block, fander Funky funky Christmas nope. I have to play that for my kids everyyear and they like give me this like look in their eyes like what are youdoing? Art Kids, yeahit's true, but we got to play it. We got to play it Christmas, wrapping by the waitresses.That's a good one. I like that one, that's like a solid s might have beenmaybe late S, but it was like a late seens early eghty song cool tune, cooltune. We mentioned WAAM YEP, here's one! I don't know if you everheard of this one I alay. I remember listening to this on the radio drivingto and from church the twelve pains of Christmas by Bob Rivers. No, I can onlytatch that those pains could be it's it's pretty funny. Actually I'llhave to see. If I can send you the I have it on my Christmas playlist I'll,send you the list ar the the song on spotify it's. I always think it's funny.I don't play it in front of the kids, but that's funny ea makes me thinkabout being a kid again and the other song that makes think about being a kid.Do the chipmunks now dude, when I saw my my one daughter they had. We havelike a little Alvan like stuffed animal and, like you and you press som. Youplays like there freaking, chipmunk song and and like she was like play itall the time and I'm like stop playing that is so annoying. Well guess what,when I a kid- and I still have the...

...cassette tape here- I have thechipmunks Christmas and I would play it on repeat. Like Iremember like we had like in our basement, we had our commodore sixtyfour setup down there, so I play like games on there and around the holidayseason. I would just I had a little like radio player next to me, withthewol tape, player so y, throw that tape in and just boom side a let it goall the way through switch it over to side B and just continue to do thatlike all day Hu.
