Music from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is now ubiquitous, just about every store and coffee shop I have lingered in lately has been playing it. It makes for some great holiday background noise, a lot better in my opinion than a lot of not so holly jolly sounds I often hear this time of year. Perhaps YouTube user, RolandJuno, thinks the same way as me, because he has put together this nice little video showing his very retro Commodore SX-64 playing the song, “Linus and Lucy” via the SID player in the 1541 Ultimate II cartridge.
You have heard this song dozens of times, but hearing it on a Commodore is a unique experience. Enjoy.
