Hallelujah, Everybody Say Cheese...
Robert I. Hedges | 12/07/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have loved "Merry Christmas From the Family" by Robert Earl Keen since the very first time I ever heard it. I was initially exposed to this song on a cable access TV show, "Viva and Jerry's Country Videos" (which is hilarious in its own right). I hadn't caught the name of the artist, so I called Viva herself and she told me to look up Robert Earl Keen. I did so, bought a couple of albums and generally liked them, but this song (and his video that goes with it) remains my favorite of his works.

It's kind of sad that there is more than a little truth in the song, but nonetheless it's funny, dryly tongue-in-cheek, and very well done. A better value is the combination book/CD that is available which includes not only a CD of the song, but a very well done book depicting the lyrics. While this may never overtake "Silent Night" or "O Come All Ye Faithful" in the pantheon of the world's most popular Christmas songs, it has a unique charm that is like nothing else, and I recommend it highly.

"This song is a characteristic of his style. This is why I've been listerning to his music since 1990. He talks about real life stuff and finds the hidden humor behind it"
THIS SONG IS SOO FUNNY!
