Song 440: Jingle Bells

Talk about putting your stamp on a Christmas song. You didn’t think you were going to get away from here without a Christmas song, did you?

Jingle Bells is a pretty plain song, definitely not one of my favorites although it is easy to learn to play the basics on a musical instrument. I figure that’s why it’s so popular, when we didn’t have recorded music, it was easy to learn to play.

But hey, you, Frank Sinatra, way to make it yours. I can’t even listen to another version without wishing it was Sinatra’s. It’s fun, and it’s such a reminder of a different time with the arrangement. CLASSIC. Love it.
