hippopotamus time

'Holiday Rule Vol. 2' is the follow up of the compilation 'Holidays Rule' (2012). On these compilations you can find a strange mixture of a few known and a lot more obscure artists. On Vol. 2 for example there is Paul McCartney and Nora Jones. But also The Decemberists, Vera Blue and Rosanna Cash (yes, daughter of Johnny!). There is also a not so exiting latin-like version of the jolly song 'I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas' from Boston based band Lake Street Dive. You can listen to it here. I prefer the original novelty hit from 1953 by ten year old Gayle Peevey. Here you can watch her being 10 years old and at the end, she sings the song when she is 73.
