New York, NY (Top40 Charts / Company) If you imagine I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus as your starting point, this is the (ill)logical conclusion - Mommy ensnaring Santa for her own festive purposes! Or maybe it's an innocent song about Christmas - we really couldn't say.

"Genius" may be one of the most over-used terms, with regards to musicians, but once in a blue moon, it's appropriate - as is the case with Adrian Cohen. Able to play any requested song by ear on the piano, he works with his lyricist father to create pop songs so perfectly honed that you begin to wonder why mega-selling artists make such a fuss about it. With the all-American goofiness of They Might Be Giants and the fractured magic of Daniel Johnston, Adrian Cohen might secretly be one of music's greatest gifts.

Adrian Cohen is an obscenely nice guy, the kind of person no-one has a bad word to say about and whom everyone counts as a friend. Able to play music perfectly by ear from the age of three, Adrian is, by any standards, savant, a condition which can see those affected achieve almost miraculous mental feats - estimates suggests it affects around one in every million people, with fewer than one hundred savants thought to be living with exceptional skills. Adrian's own gifts extend beyond playing music to being able to tell you what day of the week it was on 12th February 1762, to being able to rattle of the top of his head any artist's position in his personal top 500 songsā€¦along with the equivalent in Rolling Stone magazine's list.

It seems only fitting at the time of year when families come together and merriment is abound that a musician such as Adrian releases a song to mark the occasion.
