The holiday season is upon us, which means it is time to dust off those holiday specials plop down on the couch and enjoy the magic of Rankin/Bass and their holiday creations. I kicked off my watching with the broadcast of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer last week and I know I will watch it again at least one more time before the month is over. I know a lot of people are fans of the special, but have you ever though about picking up the soundtrack to this stop-motion classic? I picked up this CD back in the mid 1990s and while I have digitized much of my music, I still grab this CD to pop in the car each December (and it usually stays in there till March when I remember to take it out of the car).
At $4.99 the CD is a bargain. It has 19 songs that are guaranteed to make you smile and more than likely get you to sing along and with Rankin/Bass classics like, “We’re A Couple Of Misfits” and “Jingle Jingle Jingle”, no one will blame you (or be able to resist singing along themselves).
