Album Notes
Ear candy for the holidays! No one ever asked Mary what she thought about the whole immaculate conception deal, so comedic singer/songwriter Amy Engelhardt (formerly of the Grammy-nominated band, THE BOBS) did. Proceeds from the sale of this track will be donated to Lady Parts Justice, the nonprofit organization founded by Lizz Winstead, creator of "The Daily Show."

"One of the funniest Christmas songs of all time" - KQED, San Francisco

“Amy Engelhardt sings her cheeky “How Did This Thing Get in Me” from the perspective of the Virgin Mary, with Harry Shearer voicing a befuddled Joseph. It’s a Jerry Lee Lewis-styled perennial in the making, although it may not appear in the program of your local church’s Christmas pageant just yet.” – Chicago Sun Times

“Amy Engelhardt brings the show tune chutzpah with a "Great Balls of Fire"-styled lament from mother Mary.” - Mistletunes

Check out Amy's work with The Bobs on "Rhapsody in Bob" and "Get Your Monkey Off My Dog." and her solo album, "Not Gonna Be Pretty" (which isn't... intentionally funny) also on cdbaby!

“Witty and persuasive...she’s got the craft down cold, if not better than most because she has a rare and intelligent edge in wordsmithery.” - Metroland

"Poignant, provocative and playful." - Cabaret Scenes

"A finely honed sense of silliness.” - San Jose Mercury News
