Santa Came Too Soon

Here is a Christmas song I wrote.

There are many Christmas songs that worry about Santa arriving late for Christmas or missing Christmas altogether, but there seemed to be no songs about the problems that might arise if Santa arrived too early. This song addresses that.

I wrote the song in the days leading up to Christmas 2017 and recorded this video. One possibility for this song is to turn it into an illustrated children's book for adults. A sample illustration appears on this page.

 

UPDATE: Saturday, November 3, 2018

I don't have a bucket list but if I did, getting a song on Dr. Demento's radio show would be on it.

I got a song on Dr. Demento's show for the week of Nov. 3, 2018—he is playing my Christmas song, "Santa Came Too Soon." Here's the show playlist.

I wrote the song last year right before Christmas and put up a video introducing it, as seen in the video above.

This year, I'm trying to get the song out there more. I made a more formal recording which should be on iTunes, Spotify and other download and streaming services later this month. I sent it to Dr. Demento to see if he might play it during the Christmas season. Much like Santa in the song, its playing came unexpectedly early.

Dr. Demento's show is no longer on terrestrial radio but via the Internet for a fee.

But here are a couple things to do if you'd like to help:

• Click here to request the song on Dr. Demento's website. This will improve the chances the song will play again and possibly be included among the most-requested songs.

• Download a copy when it becomes available. Hopefully, I'll have details on that in a few days.

And listen to the song in its virgin edition last year.

Thanks.

What an unexpected early Christmas gift! Santa really did come too soon.
