LET IT SNOW!!!


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is always a fine song for this time of the year--just a song about winter, although some mistake this for a holiday tune (Christmas is never mentioned!)

Thanks again!

Michael

Accompaniment & Arrangement: Mr. Alan McPike
Bombastic vocal: The Velvet Smog
Written by: Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne (1944)

PS: If you've had enough of the snow, I notice there is a sandstorm just below this entry if you need some relief.

The Velvet Smog.
Impressive. Sing like this to someone and they won't let you go anywhere. Hah, hah, you've got to be careful. Explaining popcorn in the eye injuries in the emergency room wouldn't be any fun. I kind of thought it was a champagne cork. Either way, be careful as you've gotta see what you're singing. Thank you.

Hi Char
Unfortunately, Farina was the only one in the room when I was singing this! It just goes that way sometimes! Thank you so much Char and Stephen and I wish you a very bright and happy Christmas!

I hope the eye's alright, Michael, after the popcorn incident - but your vocal pipes are still in excellent condition! Bouncy, happy, rendition of the song - although some distance from the current weather in Melbourne where it's a sunny 23ºC (74ºF). As always with your work, much enjoyed!

Oh that popcorn--you know I eat popcorn almost every night while I read, but it's a good thing I had my glasses on this time around! Thanks again Philip and hope you and yours have a great holiday! Michael

Here in France it's extraordinarily warm for the season and there is only snow in the highlands.May be your song will contribute to a white Christmas in the lowlands too. :)

Thanks again Dave and I hope it snows too (if nothing else, you can always throw an ice cube on the ground and see if the sled works on that maybe?!) Take good care and very happy holidays to you and yours!

Thank you Andrew
Yeah, I think it may be one of the few "winter" songs that avoids mentioning Christmas, but I know what ya mean! Thanks again--and best to you and yours this Christmas! Michael

DWL said 2139 days ago (December 15th, 2011)
Never disappointed
when I click on one of your songs.

Something I've only just realised (to my shame) is that you produce these tracks so well. The vocals are always perfectly integrated with the backing.

Great work Michael!

Cheers

Hey there Dick!
Thanks so very much--but really, working with a superb musician like Mr. McPike--makes it so much easier for me to mix everything. Glad to hear from you mate and of course, hoping you enjoy a very blessed and bright holiday! Take care now, Michael

Snow Dreams
A week or so to go
and I dream of white
covering the trees and hills
as I awaken Christmas morn

But as the days pass
the thermometer is fickle
and refuses to budge downward
and my dreams are as close
as a white Christmas will come

Let it Snow
The mind reels when I try to imagine what listeners to this song visualize as "goodbying".... it sounds good whatever it is.
Hard to think of an original comment so I'll just say "fantastic song, fantastically done" as usual... Your taste and chops are impeccable!

You always put a stride in my step--and that's just from you're being such a dear friend, let alone the always kind support you give me here. Thanks so very much for that and I hope you have one of the best years of your life this 2012! You take care now! Mish

Just a twist of MJK...
No one can put a lid on you, Michael. Another classic with just a twist of MJK. Love the acoustic bass and vibes in the backer. I started at the artwork for the entire song. Mesmerizing. Take care, Peter.

So very talented and giving. Thank you for the download. I have my christmas music set to go! Wonderful!

Not too much of that stuff in Louisiana or Texas. When I see white flakes drifting past my eyes it is usually dandruff. Good job as ever Michael! You swing em, sway em, and then slay em!
