Description
This song came from the time our son asked (when he was about 3) "Daddy, how do reindeer fly?" Now his daughter is asking him if 6 is to young to have a mohawk. Anyway I've been writing and re-writing this song for the past 3 and a half decades. I'll get it right one of these days. Alan

VicDiesel,

Thank you. I hope to get by your site for a listen soon. I'm new to this site and so I'm having to kind of find my way around. It's good though to find a site where there are fellow song writers sharing their art. Alan

This is so much like many holiday tunes done by the big names. I love the flute punctuation and the easy swing to the the bass and vocal. I'll bet this was fun to sing!

Be well,
Doug

Thank you. I have tried this song with many different styles and this one seemed to fit it quite well. I'm going to be over to listen to Tuscan Morning soon.

Could become a holiday standard. Such a nice and easy vocal. You could back an animated holiday special. Thanks.

Wow!
Excellent writing and singing. I might boost the vox slightly in the mix, and drop the electric bass ever so slightly. Other than that, this is masterfully crafted, and sounds like a timeless holiday tune.
ttfn,

Wha da ya mean?
I think you've got it right THIS TIME. I love this little song. I agree with Doug that this is very much in the mold of the classic Christmas songs. You have set up a very catchy rhythm and tune and your vocal is clear, out front, and in tune! I love the bouncy accompaniment. Perfect for this song. This ought to be on the radio this coming season! If it seems a little cliched, well, you used the genre perfectly. Just a delightful song.
Peace.

Love the music you put together for it, fits perfectly. Great song for kids of all ages.

Love it my friend, a wonderful Christmas song with a great vocal on it. Sure to answer any kids questions about Reindeer and Sleighbells.
