Little Jimmy Osmond

Artist: Little Jimmy Osmond
LP: 7" single
Song: "If Santa Were My Daddy" 
[ listen ]

Jimmy Osmond refuses to allow his kids—Sophia, Zachary, Arthur and Isabella—to become pop stars. He wants them to have the normal childhood he never had. Jimmy has other regrets too: "In the '80s I had my hair all puffed out," he says, "long jackets, shiny shoes—it's on the internet and I just want to kill whoever put it there." 

"If Santa Were My Daddy," released in 1971, is probably one of the primary reasons Jimmy's kids have been banned from showbiz. And now it looks like I should expect to be getting death threats too.
