The most wonderful time of the year. Say hello to our final release of 2021. I had planned on one final release before the year’s end. But a Christmas release wasn’t on my mind. So I imagine the song I planned on releasing will see the light of day in 2022. CHRISTMAS LIGHTS was written in late November. I decorated earlier than usual this year. I had planned on shooting a Christmas video for ROCKROLL SANTA CLAUS and well, a Christmas video should be festive. Once I had CandyLand all decked out and looking ultra festive I sat back and had a look. Twenty minutes later I had a new song sitting in front of me. Okay. Thank-you Angels and Spirit. Let’s do a demo for you. And so the gang all got together to see what we could do. The chimes were the final addition to the track. Funny old thing. The chimes and bells are usually the first thing out of the bag when I’m working on a yuletide song. That didn’t seem to be necessary this time around. I captured everything I wanted without them. I had a bit of a chuckle while I was listening to the final mixes. An old SCTV clip popped in my head. Eugene Levy as Quasimodo. The bells, the bells …
Or maybe the Angels themselves. Calling in the communion. Angels love bells and chimes. I’m pleased as punch. Look at me. Jack the lad. I have three yuletide songs released now. Gee, in a year or two I’ll have enough songs for an EP. I’m rolling up my sleeves as I write this. And still chuckling to myself … xoRJ


Snow stuck around my little town
Setting the scene for Christmas
Tinsel galore, wreath on the door
The most wonderful time of the year

Middle school choir invaded the mall
Singing - Oh - Holy - Night
The stores are all closing
I'm busy shopping
Looking for Christmas lights

Shopped for a toy - small orphan boy
Anonymous Santa this Christmas
Metal toy train dipped in red paint
A friend to last all through the years

Little town choir with angels on high
Singing - Oh - Holy - Night
I'm walking home
Treasures in tow
And ... I found some Christmas lights

Here's to the wise men who followed the star
Seek and you will find
More than a baby born in a stable
The first Christmas light

So - snow's coming down in my pretty town
Just a few sleeps 'til Christmas
One little tree is perfect for me
I've kept it for all of these years

Church choir aided by angels on high
Singing - Oh - Holy - Night
When I get home
I'll write a song
One about Christmas lights

So - here's to the wise men who followed the star
Seek and you will find
More than a baby born in a stable
The first Christmas light

Snow stuck around in my pretty town
Just one more sleep ' til Christmas
