We at Popular Materials Center were recently asked to find the song "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth". We found it by Spike Jones and his City Slickers on The Greatest Christmas Novelty CD of All Time by Dr. Demento. Christmas novelty songs have a special place in the grand scheme of things during the holidays. When everyone is stressed to the max a little humor can put the fun back into the Christmas Season. I was suddenly overwhelmed with nostalgic feelings to hear my own favorite novelty Christmas songs.
We can all do without The Singing Dogs singing (???) "Jingle Bells" but there are plenty of better ones like Allan Sherman's parody "Twelve Gifts of Christmas" and Gayla Peevey's "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" and of course "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by Jimmy Boyd. I'm sure you too have a Christmas favorite. Please share with the rest of us bloggers.
Oh and Merry Christmas.
