Now Day of this episode. Yep, I'll I'll let you introduce what song we talking we are going to be talking about Mellie Kaliki Macca, which happens to be by being crosby, my favorite Christmas did eat now I...

...think I just spoiled the ending of the show by announcing that so loudly and proudly, but I don't care. It's Christmas, I am filled with joy, but I love me some Mellie Kliki maca. Yeah, IT'S A it's a quality Christmas tune and there have been numerous versions of the version we're going to talk about today is the kind of holiday staple from being crosby and the Andrews Sisters, which was off being crosby's album merry Christmas, which came out in nineteen fifty five. However, the the song itself, Mellie Kaliki Maka, was written by Robert Alex Anderson in nineteen forty nine. Now, quick little backstory being crosby was actually a golf partner and friend of Robert Alex Anderson, and then Anderson played the song for crosbying and Crosby liked this so much he recorded his own version of it, which I think wound up being in nineteen fifty, and then in nineteen fifty five it became part of Crosby's famous this compilation album, marry Christmas. So that's the that's the one we're going to talk about today, the one off of crosby's merry Christmas album. And I'll tell you what, when it comes to singing Christmas songs, Man Bing just nailed like every single one of them. Yeah, he really did. He's known for him. You know, it's kind of like borough lives. When you think of these two names, you automatically think, oh, this has to be a Christmas record. Yep, yeah, bing is crushed all the Christmas songs now to day. What are some of your memories of this particular song? Well, I am going to give you a double WAMMI on this, drew, because I'm be up sure I've heard it plenty as a child, considering it came out many, many years before I was born, but I happen to see a little film in the movie theaters way back when in the late s called National Lampoon's Christmas vacation. Was An age appropriate? Absolutely not, but still my pops took me to go see it and there's a scene in that film. You familiar with the movie at all, drew? Oh, it's top three. Okay, I love all time for me...

...for Christmas movies. This is now I know why I hang out with you, because if you don't like Christmas vacation, there is something seriously wrong with you. But the whole he's fantasizing about the pool in his backyard. This whole scene of the movie, and they play Mellie Kalicki Maka and for some reason at that time that song stuck with me and I believe mostly, and much like you, drew, you can relate to this. Growing up on the East Coast Christmas time, sure, it's wonderful to spend time with your family and friends, but climate wise, as far as weather, it's miserable, sucks, it's terrible. I don't like being cold. I moved awail from all that. You, unfortunately, are still in the thick of it. So to hear a song about a Hawaiian Christmas to me with such an appealing, wonderful idea, I just couldn't get enough of it. It warms the heart, it does, especially when you live in the frozen Tundra. That's right. Yeah, we just got we'll tell you about man, we looked out because that we were. We just got a storm over last week and we were supposed to get like twelve, that between twelve to twenty inches, and we only wound up getting about eight. So I was like, all right, that's that's good. E. It's like that's like good, that's fine. Anything beyond that, anything beyond that, it's it gets to be a complete shit show. But you fool, you, yeah, Damn Fool. I haven't seen a flake of snow in years and it's wonderful as a fantastic thing. I don't care if I ever see another flake of snow in person. If it's on TV, that's fine, but I don't want to touch it, I don't want to clean it, I don't even want to touching my skin. Okay, no more snow. I don't hate it. I just hate when you gets so much and you know it's it just gets you know, things get you like roads are getting shut down. That's when, I guess to be a mess. I mean I like we weally going where anyway right now, but but I mean for me, yeah, the pretty much the same thing. Like, I feel like I probably had heard it on the radio before Christmas vacation came out, but I feel like Christmas vacation probably give it a little bump and popularity, sure due to its...

...placement in that movie, which and that, like I said, that movie is in fact fantastic, very quotable. Right. I love that movie. You you have to watch it every Christmas season and I love that. I'll tell you what, Dave, I love that movie so much. Now, Clark Grizzold, they lived in Chicago. He was a big Black Hawks Fan. Right. Personally, I was a big I still am. I still like them. They're not a team anymore, but I'm a Hartford whalers fan. Okay, they're. Technically they're now the Carolina hurricanes, but I I still go for the Hart of whalers and I love them so much and I love the Christmas vacation movie so much. I actually had a custom whalers Jersey made and I wore it to Christmases ago. Get Out of dodge. We had we had family. That wasn't like a big family Christmas, but we had my parents up in, my brother and sister in law over and we YEP, and I had my custom whalers Jersey. That's great, drew. This awesome. I mean there's a total Clark grizzwold moment. They're righteous. My brother is the most difficult guy on the face of the Earth to buy for. He already has everything he needs and so this year I actually ordered him a custom made and I know, listen, I'm a Boston guy. My brother, we bleed Boston, but I got him here the movie Authentic Clark griswold Black Hawk Jersey. Okay, man, he loves it and he wore it while he was actually decorating his house for Christmas. So I said, there you go, as long as you don't fall off the roof, everything is a okay. Yeah, that's that's a good that's a great gift. It was awesome because I'm an awesome guy. I I you know what, I'm the most thoughtful person on the face of the earth, maybe even in the universe. I don't know, it's debatable. Top three at least. Oh, yeah, yeah, but I'll tell you what, speaking of numbers and being in the top being crosby's version has been streamed over sixty seven million times on spotify and, per billboard, this song peaked like the other...

...day, which is weird. You know, this song is what seventy years old almost. This song peaked at number one hundred and sixteen, which I didn't even know, like that was possible, because it's like the hot one hundred and like, why is there one hundred sixteen? And I pulled it up, I I I looked at I looked, I pulled up on billboards website, like it was there. HMM. And and it peeked at number one and sixteen on December Sixteen, two thousand and twenty, so a couple days ago. Well, I assume there are other Christmas songs that are also peeking because people this year, maybe more than ever, needs some happiness in their lives and Christmas songs tend to provide that for a lot of folks. Yeah, and now I'll let me ask us a little quizier. What do you think? What do you think the number one song was on the hot one hundred last week. You are asking the wrong I Y, because I'm not really hip or down or with it. With the kids in there Hula hoops and Nintendo Games, I'm not sure who'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 to Legit, to quit MC HAMMER? That's a that's a great choice. Thank you. That's a great choice. Close. But you know, what you were saying earlier was actually pretty spot on. Number One, you know, we're we were saying people are listening to a lot of Christmas music. Now, the number one song was actually all I went for Christmas, as you know, right carry, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, come on, that Sag he nauseates me and I I know we're talking Christmas, we're talking happiness, and then you just brought up the one Christmas song. I'm like, you know, it doesn't do anything for me, doesn't move the needle. Actually probably moves a needle in the opposite direction. You know, at least they didn't say hey, Santa by the fucking Wilson Phillips. Okay, true, I suppose that. Yeah, all right. Well, I don't know, it's not really a hill I'm willing to die on, so let's move on. Yeah, now how does this song we always 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 being crossby the thing crosby. You know, something that Bing crosby did is in the late S, and I found this very interesting. He did a duet with David Bowie, yes, a little drummer boy. That's great version. It's it's okay, and you know I'm a huge Bowie Fan, but it's not like for me, it's not like wow, oh my God. I think I'm more impressed by the whole kind of different cultures or the different basically, you talking to a guy, talking about a guy rather, who made his career dressing up and dragon said he came from another planet with freaking Lily White Bread Making Crosby, you know what I mean, an old man. I think I was such an interesting collaboration. That's that's what I've been kind of alluding to my whole ramble here. But that's really bizarre. But it wasn't bad. Yeah, no, I I like that version too. But yeah, I think if you asked me, well, well, we'll talk about our favorite Christmas songs. I'll mention it there. Yeah, I do have to say this. So the Wilson Phillips Little Drummer boy better than the Crosby Bowie version. You're joking. I am joking. That's the president of the tree, me and my gigs, ha ha ha. Don't ever say that that the Brentley Gilbert version was great. All, Brantley Gilbert can really knock out a Christmas diddy. That's not funny. Yeah, I know, it's not funny at all. Anyway. Okay, I know what you're talking about. What are we talking about? Mel Kliki Maka? Yes, yes, I mean lyrically. I mean Meli Kaliki Maka just means Merry Christmas. That's it. It's all you need. That's pretty much. I feel like I don't need to dig into this, like a Fogelberg Song, but yeah, this one's just's Mary Christmas, pretty basic. It's happy. It's like a nice greeting. HMM, Yep, you know, and Nice Hawaiian greeting. That's really it. This song is far from revolutionary. There's nothing going on to the song other than, as I mentioned before, with with me being raised on, you know, frozen earth. Yeah, is...

...that traditional Christmas songs or standards usually mentioned? You get, you know, you need the snow, you need the cold, need you know, Oh baby, it's cold outside, what have you. This one was just a different theme. It was like no, we don't need that crap. Christmas is here and it is warm and bright. You know what I mean. It's wonderful in Hawaii and I've never spent a Christmas in Hawaii, but I would love to do so. So if any of your listeners want to donate to the cause and send us to Hawaii for next Christmas, please do so right now. Yeah, that'd be great. I will gladly accept that gift. Yep, we will broadcast from Hawaii on Christmas Day two thousand and twenty one. That's right. Yeah, I mean last year. Yeah, yeah, we love a Pennsylvania and you know we get we get snow, you know, around the holidays, wintertime. That's what happens up in the northeast. But last year we took our kids to Disney and we stayed at the villages in Florida, which, by the way. It is fantastic. I love the villages. They are glorious. You just drive around the golf cart and drink beer all day, go to happy hour at like five o'clock and you're like home and bed about like eight or nine. It's perfect. But I know it 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 I had no problem with their not being snow. So I'm okay with a nice, warm Christmas greeting. That works for me. Yeah, I just hear far too often, like people that are similar to me where they are, that snow sucks. I hear that snow and then they change their tune a little bit. They go, well, I wouldn't mind a couple flakes for Christmas, and I say no, you can't have it now. You didn't want it. You got to stick you get to stick to your guns. You just cannot write. Cannot ever want to see that damn snow. Yeah, MMM, yeah, I don't mind it. You know, I don'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 either with the...

...whole clean up process of snow. So the first solid point is all nice and looks like it does again on television, well, beautiful way Christmas, and then after the snow plows hit's black and gunky and gross and slushy and sit's around for a couple weeks, depending on how yeah warmer it is. It's around for a couple weeks. Like your brother in law, the one WHO's unemployed, who says he just can't find the right position to management. You know what I mean? Just no, yes, no, it's overrated. MMM, it's overrated. But yeah, I mean lyrically. Like you said, this song does not going to wow anybody necessarily. That's a fun and that's another thing too write. You know, most Christmas songs are usually, you know, they probably come in like under, like three minutes, usually like two and a half minutes. I feel likes a good Christmas song sometimes even shorter than that, unless you're Fogelberg and you drop a five minute and it's glorious. I love it. But yeah, I think the only one. That might be the only songs that use are longer than the twelve days of Christmas or whatever. Okay, that's just because there's like a million things they have to get through, but otherwise usually songs are pretty quick and like leaky Makas are pretty quick song, and it's good. It's just to the point, to the point. Yeah, indeed, exactly. So, speaking of getting to the point, why don't we do that, deave? Yeah, so what do you think? Well, Meli Kalicky Maka by being crosby. Do you think this is a legit hit or a song gone wrong? Well, I kind of, you know, jump the shark there in the beginning of the show. I admit it's my favorite Christmas song because it's a kind of tune I wouldn't mind standing around the fire snap my fingers while I'm wearing a ugly turtleneck sweater, maybe pop and open a couple chestnuts, mingling with family and friends, you know whatever. But uh again, I like I like the theme of it. I like it so much, and is upbeat, is happy. Another real key component to any kind of Christmas...

Song, if you asked me, is easy to follow along with. Easy to sing along with as well and unlikes. You know other songs that they just say Mary Christmas for Happy Holidays. Here you get something more fun to say with Mela Kaliki macca just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it so for me does. This song is absolutely a legit holiday hit. Now on to my boy drew, who's feeling blue because you get snow on you mom. I'm not film. I mean I'll film blue because like two thousand and twenty suck. I was just trying to make up something that rhymed. Okay, I was trying to Casey, okay, Casey, case in my way into your verdict. You know, forgive me for trying to be cool. Daddy's shadow. Yeah, Shaddo, Steve bons Love Shadow. Yeah, I mean this is a legit Christmas said. I'm just gonna I'll lead off with that. Yeah, I've said it before on other episodes with other songs. Right, like, like with thriller. If you don't have thriller on your Halloween playlist, you do not have a Halloween playlist. If you leave off Mellie Kaliki Maka, and if you leave that off your Christmas playlist you have no Christmas playlist, namely the Bang version. I honestly wouldn't recommend any other versions. Just stick with being. I think I saw Jimmy Buffett version. I didn't listen to it. I don't want to. But the bing version, I mean that's to the test of time for like seventy years and there's no reason to change that. It's good stuff. It's a legit hit. Right, I'll bro Right on. Well, I mean we are in accordance here. We agree, which is wonderful to you know, be in the season of happiness, and we are, you know, in union, if you will. But what about we are the fans. Let's see what the fans have to say. So, you know what, I'm okay this number. HMM. Ninety four percent of the fans said that this is a legit hit. Wow, that might. Is that like our highest percentage? Maybe it's got to be up there. It's got to be up there. Wow,...

...a lot of people are. I they're not getting mellieclicking mock 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 Monte Jordan was pretty high as well. Huh, I don't think it was ninety four percent. I don't know if you've ever had a ninety percent or before. Well, we untell Jordan and Bing crosby. Those are the tickets right there. They go hand in hand. Yeah, you know who to thunk it? Speaking of little drummer boy, with David Bowie and Bing Crosby, Montell Jordan should have done a song with being crosby and the world would have been set on fire. This is how we celebrate Christmas. Yeah, Falla Lalah, yeah, yeah, I would definitely download that song, for sure, absolutely that. That'll make my Christmas playlist moving nice. But speaking of Christmas playlist, Dave, let's let's talk about ours. You know, we talked about we talked about same old length sign by Dan Fogelberg last episode. Mi Likely Gy Maka this one. What? Why don't you give me your top three or just some of your favorite Christmas songs all time? Doesn't matter what year, doesn't matter by WHO, but what are your favorite Christmas songs? Wow, that's a great question, and I mean there's a lot of tunes out there, and the thing is is I'm more accustomed to listening to some of the standards, speaking of good old being that have been around for a long, long time. But today I will bring up some things that are or I will bring up some songs that are more recent. Maybe. Well, I mean they're old, but I'm old too. So maybe you get my drift here, my snowdrift. But I don't believe it's truly Christmas and less I hear the songs on the radio, one of which would be happy Christmas, war is over, by John Lennon and Yoko. Oh No, I'm not sure if you're a fan of that song, drew to go on. Yep, it's a good one, he says, not great one, is a good one. Okay, well, maybe this will take a little your ivor. Well, there is the reason why I'm always like I think the song starts off. He is like, so this is Christmas,...

...and what have you done? Now I'm like, I'm not only not enough, John, the message is good, man. You know what it has over you want? If we all believe in world peace, amazing things can happen if we're kind to one another and not just slow leading out for our own self interests, and which happens to be. It's amazing to me to this song has been out for so long and so many people like the song, but nobody gets the damn message. No, Oh, no, everybody's out. I'm not going to get into it. Yes, let's let's keep it nice and friendly and happy here. Harry Christmas. Yep, okay, now, that's a good song. That is a good song. I agree. All right, you want to do one in one. You just want me to keep going because again I was mentioning I was going to hit you with another lovely little track here. But I mean feel free to jump in. We can bounce back and forth. Maybe we pick the same things, who knows? That's why. Yeah, I mean I think it's safe to say the same old lengs and and do they know it's Christmas time? Are Not on my list, but I would say some of my fair I think my number one is snoopy's Christmas by the Royal Guardsman. My Dad is a big fan of that song. I'm a big fan of that song. It's just cool man, you know, it's a good tune. I think that came out like in his S. it's fun. You know, we are honest like the he's like the Red Baron. You know. Yeah, never, it's fun. Nobidyle, I got to mention I like how we started. I went with John Lennon. You went with snoopy. Yeah, Nice, real nice. Yeah, okay, that's a great guy. What else? What else you got? I am going to say, and this would be 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 honest with you. But what about last Christmas by Wham? Yeah, that's a good one, it's a great one. Yeah, that's that's on my it's I I wrote down like about maybe ten or so. I have my top three, but then I was kind of listed a bunch of others at last Christmas. It didn't make my top three, but it's definitely, Oh, I love it, on that list. Youde's so day is on that list. It's so a absolutely with Christmas and and and heartbroken love song.

I mean, come on that, George Michael, you you the best. We miss out. That's a good one. MMM All right. What do you get now? Garfield, South Park or something? What do you have? I'M gonna go heathcliff, the the the B list, garfields. Hum Now my number two, I would say, is the little drummer boy by the Harry Simeon corral. Really, yeah, I saw growing up we, I mean driving back and forth to church, you know, driving over to families, you know, visit our relatives. When I was a kid. We had that tape and it would be in the car and, you know, making like a know because, like, our relatives lived about maybe a half hour away. So, you know, you get a lot of tunes in, you know, a lot of car time and yeah, how are you, Simeon corral? We had that tape and I mean I could probably list every single song on that tape on this list, but I picked one and then kind of spread the love a little bit. So, yeah, the little drummer boy by the Harry Simeon corral. Hmmm, 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 some of the obvious ones are good too. I'm not, you know, and I like. These are the ones I like. There's I have. I have maybe a couple. I think that might be popular. But what we'll keep going. I'll probably you'll know what I when we get there. But what's your next one? MMM, well, for this Pi, drew, I had to go again with a nice chat from Liverpool. I really had to go with an other Bait, and that's Paul McCartney singing wonderful Christmas time, because it's very trippy and it puts me in the mood to in fact have a wonderful Christmas time. Do you like that song, drew? You know, I can never remember the lyrics to that one. samply have wonderful Christmas time, and it's just that how that goes. Yeah, and it's trippy as hell. Like we had the episode about the flaming lips and this reminds me. I don't know if they ever covered this. If they they haven't. They should. I don't believe they have, but this song is pretty I don't...

I think Sir Paul could have possibly been up to some high jinks when he, you know, composed this this song, but for me it's cheery, it's happy and it's a little offbeat and different and it always puts me in a good mood. Oh Yeah, I mean it beats the message in your head. We're simply having a wonderful Christmas time and if you, even if you weren't, and you listen to that song by like the eighty seven time he said we're simply having a oneful Christmas, believe it. Then you're like, you know, then, like you know what I am? Yeah, I guess I am. The moon is right spirits up. You're into it. You know what I mean. And by the way, this is also his wings era. So Paul McCartney and wings. I want to mention that cause I just did say Paul McCartney in my little crappy British accent. Maybe somewhere our listeners, because hey, don't forget about wings, and I won't. I didn't. That's that's that's a good tune. It's fun. Yep, I'm down with that one. Cool Dude. All right, my, my. So this is I feel like my top three is pretty solid here. I think, as far as you know the order of it, and I feel like that is my top three. If anybody asks which we kind of are this, he's definitely is my number three here. I would say I'm going with Santa Claus is coming to town by Bruce Springstein. Oh Wow, you know, I it's that's amazing. Because I like that song a lot and when I sing that song I always embellish like I was bruce springsteen. Yeah, you know, I mean Saya Claus come into town, you know, like your mid like coronary or something when you sing it. So yeah, that's that's a good pick. But you know what's funny is you bringing up earlier how you like the shorter Christmas songs. I always feel like, and I don't have the track listing in front of me now because this wasn't like preplanned or anything, we're just, you know, when it loose and 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, for about four and a half minutes for that one. But yeah, it does at that one...

...does go a little bit longer because then it gets to the end and he has like the Santa Claus laughs in there. But I'm okay with it. It's the boss man. I'm fine with with whatever he wants to do. Okay, he can get away with anything. Bruce Springstein can just do whatever the hell he wants, especially Chris yes, especially Christmastime. That's a pretty good pick. Yeah, Ye, have anymore? No, I only came with a few, plus the Mellie Kalikui Maka, and I think okay, that was enough for now. You know what, when we originally talked about kind of bringing up some of our favorite Christmas songs, I I was looking around just out of curiosity to see for Meybe I forgot something. There are a lot of contemporary versions of old songs. I know you had mentioned that. Who did Mellie Collicki Maka as well? You said Jimmy buffy Buffett. Yeah, you know, I just kind of glazed over those because if it's not something that really sticks out my mind, I don't need it, I don't want it. They can, yeah, return it, just like many people will after the holiday season is over and they get those crappy what they call the Yankee swap or the Yankee Santa. was the whole secret Santa. Everybody has a different name and or something. Yeah, I don't know what it's called, like you get a name out of a hat and you grab somebody something worth like fifty, but I guess the Secret Santa. Yeah, but everybody's got a different name for it. Like I've heard people reference like different titles and I'm like what is that, and they're like, oh, it's like a Yankee swap, or it's the secret saything like well, this call it that. It's a rusty Trombo. It's a Russy whoa urban dictionary. Any worry? Yeah, now, okay, now we know that I think about. We all know what truth getting people for Christmas this year. Rusty, well, last bottom boat. Anyway. Yeah, I mean some of the other so here's one right, so I'll be home for Christmas. I mean the whole story behind that song gets kind of a depressing song a little bit, but it's still a pretty song. And and again bing crosby's...

...version of that. I think for me it's my favorite. Rascal flats did a version of this, so I'm guessing you can figure out what Song I have not listened to. Is the rascal flats version of Bobion for Christmas. Yeah, but yeah, that's that's another good one, you know, being, you know, standard rocking around the Christmas tree, but only the Brenda Lee version, which was also the one that they played in home alone. Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives. You mentioned burrow earlier. Holly Jolly Christmas. That's to go, and that I always put you in a good mood. Here's a random one. So growing up my sister was a big new kids on the block fander, Funky, funky Christmas. So I have to play that for my kids every year and they like give me this like look in their eyes, like what are you doing mark kids? It's true, but we gotta play it, we gotta play it. Christmas wrapping by the waitresses. That's a good one. I like that one. That's like a solid s might have been maybe late S, but it was like a late S, early eighty song. Cool tune, cool tune we mentioned. WHAM YEP, here's one. I don't know if you ever heard of this one. I always. I remember listening to this on the radio driving to and from church. The twelve pains of Christmas by Bob Rivers. No, I can only imagine that those pains could be. It's it's it's pretty funny actually. I'll have to see if I can send you the I have it on my Christmas playlist. I'll send you the list or the the song on spotify. It's I always think it's funny I don't play in front of the kids. HMM, but that's funny. That makes me think about being a kid again. And the other song that makes think about being a kid, dude, the chipmunks. Now, Dude, when I so might my one daughter, the hat we have like a little Alvin like stuffed animal and the like. You, when you pressing me, plays like their Freakin chipmunk song. And and like she was just like play it all the time and I'm like stop playing that, it is so annoying. Well, guess what? When I I was a kid, and I still have the cassette tape here,...

I have the chipmunks Christmas and I would play it on repeat. Like I remember, like we had like in our basement. We had our commodore sixty four set up down there, so I'll play like games on there, and around the holiday season I would just had a little like radio player next to me with a little tape player. So I throw that tape in and just boom, side a, let it go all the way through, switch it over to side B and just continue to do that like all day. And I don't know how my parents did not strangle me because that tape was on repeat. Your Dad had a little hell, hold my Jack Daniels. He might have. Yeah, like what the Hell? He's probably thinking himself like, like what, where did I go wrong? Like I might doing something wrong as a father. Wise my son continue listen to the chipmunks. Good Lord, I don't let my son grow up to be a chipmunk. Yeah, please, but that's a that's those are some of those, some of the ones that I like the most. Well, I'm glad you didn't choose grandma got run over by a reindeer. That's a that's terrible. It's terrible and it was a song I always like growing up that now it's been canceled by popular culture. Was the baby it's cold outside and that. Yeah, that was on a date rape song, but I didn't really I didn't associate it with that grown up. But then, as an adult, I heard it and I think it was much more clearer than, if our listeners haven't checked it out yet, the Dan Fogelberg Christmas episode last time out, where you were implying Mr Fogelberg was up to no good. I think, Oh, oh, yeah, you know, you're absolutely right. Yeah, maybe it's cold outside definitely kicks it up and not. Oh Yeah, Dan Fogelberg's just kind of like, you know, gingerly hitting on this girl, this married girl, I think. But baby, it's cold outside. He's like, here's a drink. Yeah, you know, take your take your coat off, you're not going anywhere. Yeah, he might as well. He's might as well. Like one of the line should just be I just drew up this in your drink. You know, she you know. Yeah, something like that. What you drop in my drink gets a roofy, I...

...think. You know. It's around the floor. Please look the do yeah, that's something else and I can't listen to it now because it got into my head.
