I did a post a few days ago on The Muppet Christmas Carol, what I consider one of the best retellings of Charles Dickens’ classic story. In that movie, one of the songs is One More Sleep ‘Till Christmas. Kermit, as Bob Cratchit, is singing on the way home from the office after closing up on Christmas Eve.
My son, Nathan, sang that song this past Sunday for our church Christmas Musical Celebration. Since it is set on Christmas Eve, I felt it appropriate to use it as today’s post:
You will notice I sing a short tag with Nathan at the beginning: The Christmas Scat. In the movie this is actually a scat tag that occurs after One More Sleep ‘Till Christmas. But since it was shorter, and since they both begin in the same key, we decided to do it as a short intro to the longer, feature piece.
