Musician Phil Klein has
seen many Christmases in his 84 years. He's also written
many songs - more than 100, has a repertoire of 3,000-plus
songs and has performed for thousands of people. His musical
flair is reflected most recently in the upbeat polka song
"The Mistletoe Polka."
"'The Mistletoe Polka' has a melody that sticks with you -
in a good way," said Klein. "As a consumer myself, I
understand the frustration with retailers promoting
Christmas earlier and earlier each year. But my 'Mistletoe
Polka' has such an engaging, contagious melody that people
tell me they enjoy listening to it all year round."
Of course, "The Mistletoe Polka" is a great Christmas gift
for polka enthusiasts as well as anyone who simply
appreciates music with a jaunty beat. Polka fans observe
that you don't have to dance the polka to appreciate the
rhythm of polka music.
"In fact," Klein added, "during these trying economic times
this song is uplifting and humorous. It may not solve our
economic woes, but it sure can brighten someone's day."
That's exactly what the performer has been doing for
decades, and Klein shows no signs of slowing down. Known as
central New York's "Premier Piano Man," Klein's music
transcends generations. His OURMUSIC program includes vocals
and instrumentals, anecdotes of famous composers and
lyricists, and Klein's audience-pleasing humor.
"The Mistletoe Polka," with nostalgic and universal appeal,
follows in Klein's audience-friendly tradition, offering
listeners optimistic lyrics and a matching cheerful melody.

take off," concluded Klein. "I can envision polka bands,
