Christmas Song of the Day 2020: part 9

Christmas Song of the Day: Catching Snowflakes on Your Tongue by Mannheim Steamroller

Bookmark and Share

Mannheim Steamroller may be known for their progressive rock, but they’ve put out some great lighter pieces as well. Today’s song, Catching Snowflakes on Your Tongue, is a musical interpretation of whimsical fun in a snowfall. Despite the similar subject matter, it has a distinct musical feel from First Snow; it’s less intense, smoother, and more “sparkly”. When you put it up against some of their rock standards like Deck the Halls, it really shows off the musical range of Mannheim Steamroller, and that’s part of why they’re my favorite.
