Addison takes us through the elementary school song “Sixty Million Snowflakes.” She’s precocious, if not patient with our ability to learn the song.
Flying reindeer, yes. Orbital reindeer, not so sure.
Jacob Short noodles on the keyboard and pastes together “Reindeer in Space” about the extracurriculars of the eight. It gets weird. An entire alien civilization is destroyed. Is that a Xmas thing?
Maybe not technology, but magic will replace those flying reindeer.
Teresa Brewer shoehorns “The Flying Suit Song” into her Christmas collection with a couple ad libs. Not originally a holiday bit, but we like it!
Do the reindeer ever pair up with others to deliver the goods–?
OMG “Flying Christmas Babies” from Bloom is the gentle kidsong folk pop that destroys a mind. What is this lullaby folderol?! Are these cherubim or infants in peril!? Who thought this was a playful notion?!?!
Does it have to be a reindeer? That flies? For Christmas?
Patsy Trigg notices something unusual around the barn–missing reindeer! Kidsong country (great slide guitar) cutely renames the replacement twirly tailed ones in the talented “It’s a Merry Christmas when Pigs Fly.” They’re like eagles apparently.
We may have seen kangaroos and horses and plenty other animals already bringing presents on the ol’ blog. But let’s wind it up with a prog rock poem “Fly on a Christmas Dragon” by Robby Grant. Kidsong chaos (and fire breathing) ensues.
Children watch the skies every year, not for nuclear bombs/alien invasions like they did after 1951’s ‘Thing from Another World,’ but for reindeer/Santa.
“I Still Believe” is a homegrown folk ballad from PST. Earnestly overlong, but so is waiting on 12/24.
Martin Black uses syncopated country to silly effect with the kidsong “Fly Away Little Reindeer.” Oddly, this time the spotted reindeer is shooed into the sky. Which messes up this kid for life.
More twins, since who could singly replace Rudolph (with a cold)? The Jeff Archer Group goes gonzo with this polka adjacent kidsong “Starrlite & Starrbrite the Reindeer Twins.” Lounge-tastic!
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.
Rollicking kidsong rock from Martin Black portrays “Ronnie the Reindeer” as a non-problematic hard-working tool of the trade. Santa’s the boss, Ronnie’s the hoss. Not so dull as you’d think.
“Redrick the Rick Rack Reindeer” is one of those that DON’T save Christmas. John D. Girod’s creation of kidsong has four right feet and crashes into everything. Santa sends him away. Yea, i guess.
