The previous owners of our house were kind enough to leave their piano behind. It’s a beautiful old-school player piano. It uses paper rolls to encode the songs like punch cards (we inherited a number of rolls as well). I’ve never taken piano classes, but every now and then I enjoy poking around the keys until I manage to play something simple. Here’s a picture:
After managing to play “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”, I decided to create a happy-holidays video card as a thank you to all my readers (yes, all nine of you). However, having a tendency to think about alternative lyrics to well-known songs, I could not help doing it again. The result is an O.R.-ish version of the song, which I hope you’ll enjoy.
