Musical Advent Calendar: December 2

Day 2 of our Musical Advent Calendar, and  we are going back into 1970s for today’s track.

If you were a kid with a record player in 1979, chances were pretty good you had (or wanted) a copy of John Denver & The Muppets: A Christmas Together. It was that year’s  must-have Christmas record, and one of my favorite tracks on that album was this calypso-tinged version of the song, “Christmas is Coming.” This one is an all-Muppet track – Miss Piggy, Scooter, Gonzo, & Robin the Frog, Kermit’s nephew.

This  whole album was in regular  rotation in our household for years over the holidays.
