cool song, but where is it from?
ive never heard of it


guitarsticks22 - 2004-12-11

Yeah it is a cool song. It's from relient k's christmas album, "deck the halls and bruise your hand." It's track number eight, Handles messiah (the hallelujah chorus). If that's what you mean by where is it from.

imagine playing this song with your youth choir for a christmas celebration at church! it'd rock the congregation!
