Let my wish materialize

Buddy: Sounds like somebody needs to sing a Christmas Carol.
Jovie: No way.
Buddy: The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
Jovie: Thanks, but I don't sing.
Buddy: Oh, well, it's just like talking, except longer and louder, and you move your voice up and down.

Unusual carols today. In the first video, Google Translate has mangled the lyrics, and in the second video, a major key carol has been changed into a minor key. (Major key songs are generally happy, and minor key songs are sad overall, so the artist did a series experimenting with that.) The last video rocks out with classroom instruments.

Three really different responses to these carols.

The minor-not-major version of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas really does sound sad...amazing!

The Jimmy Fallon video was about as happy as you can get.

But the "translated" All I Want for Christmas just cracked me up. :-)
