Artist: The Mistletoe Disco Band
LP: Christmas Disco
Song: "Sleigh Ride"
[ listen ]
The holidays just wouldn't be complete without Christmas Disco blasting from the stereo in my apartment. Some people have been known to claim that The Mistletoe Disco Band doesn't really exist, since these songs were re-packaged, credited to other groups, and then stuck on a variety of albums with glitzy lights and holiday-themed titles throughout the late 1970s. (See the "Hear It Wow" blog for details.) But to that I say bah humbug. I will always believe in Santa Claus, little baby Jesus in a manger, and The Mistletoe Disco Band! Merry Christmas!
