Today marks the start of another color theme. This month’s color is red in honor of Christmas. That doesn’t I’ll be playing a load of Christmas songs, by the way. Nope, this month I’ll be playing songs with red either in the title, the band name, or lyrics.
The first song in this series is one of my favorites from childhood. I’ve mentioned before how eclectic the music in our household was when I was growing up. This song is one that seemed to play every single time my dad picked me up to bring me to his house for the weekend.
Even now, thirty years later, I remember clear as day riding in his blue Oldsmobile while he had Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs blasting out “Little Red Riding Hood”. He’d drape one hand over the top of the steering wheel and keep time by flicking his fingernails against the dashboard. We’d sing and howl the entire drive to his house.
Ah, memories. I hope you enjoy the first in the red theme. Trust me, I have some great ones this month!
