Paul & Paula

Artist: Paul & Paula
LP: Holiday For Teens
Song: "Holiday For Teens"
[ listen ]
Song: "Winter Wonderland"
[ listen ]
Song: "Holiday Hootenanny"
[ listen ]

First of all, these people's names are Ray and Jill, not Paul and Paula, and they were both in their 20s when this record came out in 1963. This entire enterprise has been built upon a pack of lies! Not only that, but I tried singing "Holiday For Teens," hand-claps included, to some festive-looking teenagers on the bus on my way home from work today, and it did not go over well, to say the least. I immediately switched over to "Holiday Hootenanny," since to be honest that one seems more likely to appeal to today's youngsters, but the teens silently shuffled away to another part of the bus before I even finished the first verse.
