While we’re hibernating in the Winter still, let’s acknowledge the BIG Christmas song picture: all aspects of This Time of the Year are fair game for caroling. Let it Snow, Baby It’s Cold, Winter Wonderland are all about the need to be close together inside exchanging warmth by our mere presence. (Yea, even unto Jingle Bells which does NOT mention Christmas.)
We here at Novelty Central have proven time and again that you can’t have enough on your Christmas playlist. We’re all inclusive and we cherish all colors, ingredients, and positions.
So let’s talk freezing…
To begin with, the snowflake is a symbol of natural complexity and wonder. (So of course it’s been politicized into a derogatory epithet–not white privilege, as was prevalent until about 10 years ago. Now it means PC and over-protective of liberal uniqueness. Guys, if you need to reappropriate hate terms, it’s all in Shakespeare!) (We’re too retro and loving here to give that any more airplay.)
Kids love this stuff, so i need to spend a day on their innocence and lack of originality in snow songs.
Baby Learning World combos with Kids Learning Tube to teach us elementary science in their “Snowflake Song.” You’ll recognize references from ‘Frozen’ and Middle Earth and sci fi.
Miss Molly has that dull intonation that makes kids want to singalong with her “Snowflakes Falling Song.” Caution: counting. You may get hypnotized.
More wondrous and wootsie-cootsie comes Super Simple Learning with the nursery rhyme “Little Snowflake.” Lots of links to toys you can buy and more songs crowd out the end of this. They also teach forest animals “Each Snowflake is Special,” but the irony of so is everyone else! seems lost here.
Time for the assembly song! Plank Road Publishing pushes “A Million Little Snowflakes” to indoctrinate the wee ones.
Rosemary Clooney made it famous, but our new and improved “Suzy Snowflake” arrives care of the ADHD stylings of Soul Coughing. Still just kid stuff.
Peter Pan Carolers sing in a round with Their “Snowflake Song” from the happening ’70s. It’s melting, man! Peter Wood Singers slow this down for maximum meditation. Sounds like background music for The Brady Bunch.
Couple guys with guitars The String Beans laugh and play with their “Snowflakes” song.
Tiana has quite an anthem on “Snowflakes” from her Toys and Me album. (Santa’s mentioned.) Uplifting.
Nyanna makes a real dance number for her “Snowflake Waltz.” Keep arms in position, tots!
Most fun (and almost educational) are Trout Fishing in America with “Bob and Bob.” Those snowflakes might all be different, but a couple of ’em might have the same name. Could happen. Picking and grinning fun.
