I was thinking about a song I haven't heard that's hard to come by.
I have the soundtrack on vinyl, but no fancy switcheroo gadgets to transfer a song that's been on my mind ... the song is Christmas Chimes Are Calling from the Rankin and Bass animated '74 film 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
That's the song that they play from the town clock to attract Santa to their village after the son (Albert) of Father Mouse writes a nasty disbeliever letter to the editor causing Santa to avoid Junctionville.
The song gets stuck in my head and it's rather cheery. If you happen across it, I'd love to hear it on MCR.
This thread has had a great run (at least for me). I hope that more folks than have replied within have added to their Christmas audio entertainment collection. By all means I hope others find and continue to post Christmas download and stream sources. I for one would be most grateful! Iíll continue to post anything I find at any given time, but will not be updating on a weekly basis much anymore.
For those who are new here, just start from the beginning and work your way forward or vice versa. Keep in mind that some of the links are now broken or were only active for a limited time.
If anyone needs help to track something down, Iíll see what I can do. Just ask!
Thanks again for over 5,000 views! That was my goal for 2008 and I'm glad it hit in only two months later.
