Musings Of Lian's Mom

You know, when you are dating a musician it is not an unreasonable request to ask him to write a song for you.  For 18 years now I have been asking my dearly beloved to write me a Christmas song. In this house Christmas songs are a big deal. Every November the boy and I slave over a hot play list fixing errors and finding new tunes until our Christmas list is just right. It plays from Thanksgiving day  until Christmas. I will even admit a little guiltily that several Christmas songs are on our daily play list. It is not uncommon to hear Trans Siberian Orchestra, Amy Grant or Straight No Chaser any day of the year.
What I don't have is Morgan Patrick Perry.


That is not to say I don't have any of his songs on my play list. The boy falls to sleep nightly to a selection of MPP tunes written just for him and his nightly ritual of falling asleep to soft music. Songs written just for HIM. And it's not like he hasn't ever written songs for me. In fact he and a buddy just finished recording the vocals for a song he wrote for me years ago.  A song that you listen to and know that love is real.
Still, no Christmas music.

I know that art works in it's own way and you can't force creativity but would have killed him to kick out two minutes of the fluffy seasonal stuff?

Finally he has. Yes, for the first time ever, a Morgan Patrick Perry tune will hold the coveted first slot in my our ever growing Christmas play list. Lian is of course ecstatic but then it would seem that Lian is hubby's officially recognized biggest fan. Never mind that I know the names of all the bands he has been in or that I have been a fan bordering on groupie for nearly two decades or that I am the one who is old enough to create a fan page on facebook OR that I am in fact much bigger than my seven year old.
Nevermind, I digress...

So here it is, the world premier of Pergamena
