Singing CPA releases new CD of holiday music
Steven Zelin, aka The Singing CPA, has announced the release of his latest CD just in time for the 2008 Holiday Season titled, "No Accounting For The Holidays." The CD features 10 parodies of popular holiday favorites.
Everyone, including accountants and finance gurus, can appreciate an update to "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" retitled, "We Wish You A Great Big Refund." And, other sure to be favorites on the CD include "IRS Jingle Bells," "Most Deductible Time of the Year" (to the tune of "Most Wonderful Time of the Year"), and for those celebrating Hanukkah, "Taxes, Taxes, Taxes" (sung to the tune of "Dreydl, Dreydl, Dreydl").
Zelin, a former accountant at PricewaterhouseCoopers and JPMorgan Chase & Company, quit his job earlier this year to pursue his musical dreams.
"The holidays are often a blur for accounting and finance professionals with year-end financials due and tax season looming once the ball drops," said Steven Zelin, The Singing CPA. "My new holiday CD is sure to give them a reason to take a break and enjoy the holiday season with a few laughs and a smile!"
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
