Hi George
Very cute Santa song. I especially like the line "I've been a good boy and I'm not very old". That made me giggle. Good Job!

Wow, I almost missed this one. I love the Roy O. feel in your vocal Michee and the kid dreaming of his new guitar from Santa. The arrangement fits perfectly and what a great instrumental break with the guitars.

Has a classic vibe that would fit right in the playlist with Rocking Around The Christmas Tree. I love late 50's and early 60's rock so this was right up my alley. smile
