Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
"12 Days...." is a hard one for artists to make interesting or enjoyable because of the repetition. After all 'repetition' is this songs shtick, so making it enjoyable to listen to is a challenge if an artist or group records it. On a lot of Christmas songs, I really don't like a lot of the artists' embellishments where they try to make it their own. With this song, though, it's necessary if your going to listen to it more than a couple of times during the season.
About the only version of this song that I like and can listen to in a regular rotation of Christmas music is Relient K's version. It's not for everybody, because it has a rock/punk feel to it. But, they put a lot of variation in that keeps it interesting. If you stick with it through the 5th day, you get rewarded with that variation. It's a fun version, in my opinion, and about the only one I intentionally listen to.
