Christmas Mixtape: Track 1

The great Christmas Mixtape reveal! The first song is a special one. I remember that I stalked this song and wanted it to lead off my tape some 30 years ago.

It was a Christmas song that I remember my dad singing to me in the car.

It is…Snoopy’s Christmas by the Royal Guardsmen.

If you know Snoopy, you know about his ongoing feud with the infamous Red Baron. Well, this song talks of the time that the conflict was interrupted by Christmas bells.

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ring out from the land
Asking peace of all the world
And good will to man

And instead of shooting Snoopy down – well, you should just listen to the song. Because it is awesome. And it’s on my mixtape.

Bottom line, I loved the song because it told a story, my dad sang it in funny voices, and it had Snoopy. Boom. Trifecta.

Is it my favorite Christmas tune? Probably not, but it is in the top ten.

What’s yours? More of my mixtape to come.

But for now…Captain out.
