I recently saw a tweet on Chris Anderson’s Twitter, mentioning a fun Christmas album they listened to as kids. Out of curiosity, I followed the link…and lo and behold, that album was OUR “decorate the tree” music ‘way back when! I can still picture my Dad supervising from the recliner, while sucking the end of a candy cane down to a deadly point. Here is the link for the free download of the “Little Drummer Boy” album by Living Voices.
Then, I recalled a little 45 Christmas record we had, and thought I’d see if I could find it. I did! Here, for your listening pleasure is “All Around the Merry Christmas Tree” by the Lennon sisters. On the flip side was their cutting edge creation, “Outer Space Santa.” That one’s kinda out there (pun intended).
And then there’s always the Alvin and the Chipmunks classic Christmas song.
Weird what your brain can dredge up. I haven’t heard those songs for probably 40 years, and I can still remember every word. That’s why I’m so good at Trivial Pursuit. Sadly, I retain tons of worthless information. 😉
