"AS ONLY THEY 'CAN-CAN': After melding Toto's "Africa" into last year's No. 5-peaking Adult Contemporary hit "The 12 Days of Christmas," buzzworthy a capella act Straight No Chaser enters the chart at No. 27 with its latest inventive carol, "The Christmas Can-Can."
The song largely incorporates the melody of the traditional French can-can composition. The peppy chorus line accompaniment was first popularized in Paris ballrooms as early as the 1830s.
While poking fun at the ever-increasing commercialization of the holiday season, Straight No Chaser also takes a cue from Adam Sandler and reaches out to those without a Christmas tree. To the tune of "I Have a Little Dreidel," "The Christmas Can-Can" light-heartedly laments: "Drediel, dreidel, drediel, I made it out of clay. You realize that Christmas ain't the only holiday!"..."
