Little Saint Nick

by

The Beach Boys



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Cars were a common theme in early Beach Boys songs, notably "Little Deuce Coupe," which was the template for this song that envisions Santa's sleigh as a Nordic Hot Rod: candy apple red with a 4-speed stick. Brian Wilson wrote the song with Mike Love.
For The Beach Boys' Christmas Album, the first side was original Christmas songs written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love, and the other side contained traditional favorites like "Frosty The Snowman" and "White Christmas." (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
This was used in a popular Coke commercial featuring a moment of Christmas cheer between animated polar bears and penguins.
Hanson recorded this for their 1997 Christmas album Snowed In.

I used to wig out on the ending vocal where the dimish chord is OOO OOO OOO OOO
Just loved that so much!

I liked the original, but my favorite version of this is the Muppets' arrangement, on their album with John Denver. Animal: "RUN RUN REIN-DEER!"

Writing great prog metal isn't easy, especially when it's for 60 musicians.

The Reverend rants on psychobilly and the egghead academics he bashes in one of his more popular songs.

A band so baffling, even their names were contrived. Check your score in the Ramones version of Fact or Fiction.

The former Dead Kennedys frontman on the past, present and future of the band, what music makes us "pliant and stupid," and what he learned from Alice Cooper.
