    Re: Holiday Public Domain List.

    What's the most obscure holiday song on this list? That's the one I want to do, in the hopes that no one has really heard it so you can't tell that I've done it wrong.

    Seriously, pick one old buddy, make it an obscure one, and that's the one I'll do.

    Re: Holiday Public Domain List.

    Thanks LFO for the help. I started researching and wound up reading laws and articles on the subject of public domain. I was side tracked there for awhile! Thanks again.
