An After Christmas Christmas song! "Time of the Urban Tumbleweeds" by yours truly Julie

Here's a little song I wrote I haven't had the nerve to work on for a few years because I hate Christmas music! But I finally arranged it and here it is. I have to say if I had it my way it would sound like The Ronettes.

Julie the Bruce playing a bayan on Thanksgiving 2011. Thank you Robin for lending this to me. It invades my skull.
Someone I barely know was kind enough to lend me a bayan and since then I've been a little obsessed with them. Here is a site that is one of the more interesting I have found on the subject. If you know anything about accordion, it's like playing the piano key type accordion as a game of Twister for your fingertips. In other words, it's really fun but in the end are you going to be able to get the fingering on that note?
