Christmas In July 2008-Day 30

With this post, I should be caught back up, which is a good thing, since it is the next to the last day of the month. But let's not get sidetracked with semantics, lets just enjoy the music. This post shares out tracks that I grabbed from records designed to entertain and educate children. Before you get your hopes up, these all date from between 1979 and 1989, so there's nothing here too exciting.

Let's start with Ev'rybody's Good For Christmas by Steve Clayton & Gail Contini from the album Holidays To Sing About (Ultrasound ULT 3420, 1979).

Track two is Jingle Bell Rock by Greg & Steve from the LP Holidays And Special Times (Youngheart VR009-R, 1989). This is the only non-original song in the bunch.

Track three is Sleigh Bells-Russia by Catherine Slonecki from the album Children's Songs Around The World (Activities AR 56, 1989).

Track four is Santa's Coming from the album Holiday Songs (Macmillan, 1987) credited to no-one in particular, so I credited to Sing & Learn, the name of the series of records it seems to be from. They've changed up the number of reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh from eight to ten. Not sure why.

The rest of the tracks are all by Janeen Brady from the album I Have A Song For You, Volume 2-About Seasons And Holidays (Brite Music, 1980). They are I Like To Play In The Snow, Playful Little Jack Frost and The Very Best Part Of Christmas Time.

That's it, seven more songs, though I'm afraid none of them are as good as my favorite track in this vein, What If Snowflakes Came In Flavours. Here's the download link, now get busy and download them. Don't forget the shares from 2006 and 2007, and don't say I never gave you anything.
