A Silent Night, Clown Style

My YouTube feed has pestered me with suggestions of a clown covering songs for at least the past two years. Some clown called Puddles Pity Party. I hate clowns. They just simply freak me out. So I have avoided clicking on any of those suggestions and a couple times thought about clicking the button to remove any suggestions of his channel to me period.

It was contempt without investigation. All because clowns just give me the heeby jeebies.

Then recently one day the suggestion was Ozzy Osborne’s Crazy Train, which I love, but by this Puddles clown guy. I finally gave in and was pleasantly surprised. This clown was good. Really good. I subscribed after just that one video,

So what did my YouTube feed suggest this week? Puddles singing Silent Night.
“Oh shit” I said to myself. Not only do clowns give me the heeby jeebies but Silent Night is like almost my least cared for Christmas tune ever…period. I just don’t like that tune. We sang it and sang it when I was a kid and I’ve never liked it at all.

I almost ignored it and then remembered that this guy is good, really good. So I clicked play and wow, just wow. I can listen to this version of Silent Night over and over.

Did I say this clown is good? Oh I did and I meant it. Enjoy.

One thought on “A Silent Night, Clown Style

  1. Yes, it’s a pretty good rendering though, as you suggest, visually a bit WTF!. Good to hear all three verses, rare outside a church service. I don’t share your dislike of the carol, due in your case to over-exposure, and probably enforced singing. It was also well-trodden in my Catholic schools yet remains one of my own favourites despite that.
