This week, I'm pleased to welcome my pal, Jen Harris, back into the studio. We've performed this song a couple of times, and I wanted to get Jen back here to share it with you. Such a fun rendition of a classic 40's song.
Actually, the story behind this song is some kind of wonderful. Department store giant, Montgomery Ward, commissions a children's story book as a work for hire. Rudolph is born. Then, the author's brother-in-law decides to write a song about the character. It was more than 20 years later that Rudolph became the animated television classic we all know and love. The song became the first #1 hit of the 1950's, and is second only to Bing Crosby's White Christmas in holiday record sales through the years.
It just goes to show you that even when you think you're done with a project, it can take on a life all its own.
