    That is truly remarkable! 😀

    I can’t believe that in over 30 years this hasn’t had any wider attention.

    Although possibly because, I noticed, if you forget for a second the words they’re singing, it’s the least Christmas sounding song you could get! Just one little sleigh bell in there could’ve made this a massive hit!

    As a lover of (nearly) all things Paul Jabara, it’s surprising that more of his works weren’t issued on 12″. I’m wondering if that was because the album versions were considered to essentially be 12″ versions.

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    That could be. A lot of the disco singles used the album version the 12″ luckily this one has a great instrumental.

    I saw Izora and Martha in San Francisco back in the early 80’s. All they had was a hissy tape for accompaniment, but they rocked the house and wowed the audience!!! They were very friendly to the crowd, too. Great times 🙂 Thanks for the post, Paul.

    Oh I bet that was a fun show. What a great thing to have to look back on Gianni. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I love how they used the same “It’s Raining Men” formula for this camp Christmas classic!
    The video is a hoot too…the good old 80s!

    Never heard this one, thanks a lot – had a little fun with the sticker while listening (btw, there are several familiar Christmas tunes incorporated in the melody or am I mistaken – i.e. at the very start “Chestnuts roasting…”):
