Paul Simon's 'Getting Ready For Christmas Day'

Paul Simon's "Getting Ready For Christmas Day" -- from So Beautiful or So What, one of my top albums of 2011 -- takes on special meaning this time of year, for obvious reasons. But it's also worth nothing that, thankfully, his "nephew" should be enjoying turkey dinner home with his family this year.

I got a nephew in Iraq

It's his third time back

But it's ending up the way it began

With the luck of a beginner

He'll be eating Turkey dinner

On some mountain top in Pakistan

Getting ready

Oh, we're getting ready

For the power and the glory and the story of Christmas Day
