ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS DAY 2012 PT.1

For only the second time ever, Rockollections will be broadcast terrestrially on the actual Christmas Day itself this Tuesday!
And that of course called for Something Special.
So you have the opportunity to hear the show before it goes out on the airwaves.
Now, I know last week, for no matter where you live, I GUARANTEED you a White Christmas!
And I will deliver.
How could I be so sure that I could make that promise?
Let's just say I had a tough guy backing me up...like a mobster actually, lol!
Join me for Sleigh Rides, Snowballs, Sledding and just Leaving Your Footprints in that white stuff I love so much.
And I will share with you an instrumental having nothing to do with the Christmas Season, that I quite accidentally many years ago discovered works so well to listen to when Snow is falling.
No kidding, I hope you'll try it- next time Snow is coming down, crank this song up and go to the window...it's perfect!
Let's enjoy this White Christmas Day together!
 
Bundle up and don't forget your scarf, gloves and galoshes, here are the links to listen for this beautiful Christmas Day, at Mike Pell Rockollections:
 
At Podomatic

Jon is a very unique character, lol!

He's colorful!

Most of the music Jon likes brings the word "poo" to mind.

Jon,

And I remember a time not long ago when you wanted to bring some CLASS to this place!

You even scolded me, lol!

Now look at you...Mr Hanky's Christmas Poo songs indeed!

I remembered something about I Saw Three Ships which I forgot to mention before. You need to get the South Park version. Hell, get the South Park Xmas album. I think it's called Mr Hanky's Christmas Poo songs or something like that.

RJ,
It's not disjointed, it's stream of consciousness.
My show is disjointed, lol!
Saw Three Ships- I thought it was classy, and another chance to bring other types of music here.
Simon & Garfunkel surprised you eh?
You thought that was Huey Lewis, but in your stream of consciousness found out differently, lol!
I'll take Dean's version, and some others, but I wanted a rocker (sort of) after him, grabbed Chicago.
I like Joe Pesci, he's a pisser.
Well I don't remember hearing anything revealing about Brooklyn in that Jethro Tull song, but you should have it by now, lol!
Tubular Bell isn't any good for Christmas, but it sure works for me when it is snowing...at least until I can get out INTO the snow!
The Golden Pell goes to Jethro Tull, and them to you, lol!
Thanks for the listen, hope it wasn't too late and you could get into it,
Mike

Hey Mike, I'm listening at home, so I'll be commenting as the songs play, so it may or may not seem a bit disjointed.  What can I say, I've been off since Tuesday so I'm a couple of days late.

I Saw Three Ships - Not bad, very choral and Christmassy.

Go Tell It On The Mountain - We used to sing this in choir way back in 5th or 6th grade and of course, at Church as well.  I've always liked the song, and I really like this folk sounding version with the acoustic accompaniment.  I said folk, but maybe closer to a really old gospel version.  Wow, I had no idea this was S&G.

White Chistmas - Again, a lot of Christmas spirit here.

Let It Snow - Very traditional version.

Let It Snow - Man, I really dig Huey Lewis & The News.  This is definitely the better version of this song.  A lot of Rock And Roll feel to it, not just a Christmas song.  Too bad it's Chicago.  Psych.  I still like this version better, although Dean Martin's isn't bad at all.

It's A Marsh Mallow World - Meh...

If It Doesn't Snow On Christmas - I love Joe Pesci, but he needs to stick to acting.

First Snow On Brooklyn - Really diggin' this Jethro Tull song.  Never heard it before.  This is great.  Songs like this have so much atmosphere that they truly make me wish I knew what it was like to live in that place.

Sleigh Ride - Another traditional Christmas tune.  I guess I'm just Scrooge when it comes to those, I prefer non-traditional stuff like that Jethro Tull song.

Tubular Bells - Sounds great, but makes me think of a scary movie like Halloween more so than Christmas.

Well, all that leaves is the awarding of the Golden Pell.  I'm goin' with Jethro Tull.  I sure would like to have that one...
