I am aware that most ‘Rudy’ songs are mere riffs on Sinatra’s cool nicknaming. Here we need actual tangents concerning OTHER members of Santa’s crew.
F’rexample, The Devil’s Deuce fools us with a standard intro; but “Rudy the Rockabilly Reindeer” is its own song. He might be the original star with shades on, but i’d rather hang with this flier than that other special deer.
From ’08’s bargain bin collection 13 Days of Christmas – A Romping Redneck Celebration no artist is ascribed to the bluegrass plodder “Rudy the Redneck Reindeer.” But it’s different.
Tinkly piano lounge introduces Rudolph’s twin sister “Rudolfa the Reindeer.” Mini Music Makers are just having family fun enlarging the mythos with previously unknown characters. NOT an evil twin at all.
With apologies fro not being from a famous redneck blue-collar hick comic, an old plumber posted “Randy the Redneck Reindeer.” It’s fine banjo pickin’ and some decent farm sfx alongside a shaggy dog brutal yarn (don’t worry it ends in antler relocation protection).
Yogi Yorgeson’s Stan Boreson and Doug Setterberg come at the ‘Rudolph’ song eyes wide open. With their Scandihoovian accents and veiled drug references (a rooty-toot-toot!) “Ragnar the Flat-Nosed Reindeer” is one happenin’ hoofer.
Alan Jackson’s near hit ‘Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow’ gets the parody treatment with the oft recorded and never credited “Chasin’ That Neon Reindeer.” This unnamed substitute flier has gusto and gets a fairly decent musical appreciation.
