Winter Blunderland


I just heard the worst version ever of “Winter Wonderland”, performed by Paul Anka. Apparently, on the day of recording, Paul received a crushing blow to the head and woke up suffering under the delusion that he was Sammy Davis, Jr. The resulting record is quite tragic. Poor Paul! I do hope he hasn’t had any lasting effects from the accident.
The song was followed immediately by a breathy, angst-ridden track by some unidentified emo chick who was boohooing about existential pain and why’d you leave me in the wintertime and blah blah blah. Hey, here’s a thought — perhaps because spending more than sixty seconds in the same room as you would make even the most easygoing guy want to slit his wrists. Ease up a little on the ennui and try to grab some Christmas spirit, Whiny McBummerpants. I hear Prozac has come out in candy cane form this season. Try one (or several)!

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. I think I’ve heard this version — it is dreadful! Another one that sets my teeth on edge is Dean Martin’s rendition of Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer. Blechh.
