Christmas Song of the Day 2020: part 22

Frosty The Snowman by Mannheim Steamroller

Bookmark and Share

Frosty’s gettin’ down in Mannheim Steamroller’s arrangement of Frosty The Snowman. I have no idea how they came up with this one, but it’s bold, kind of trippy, and a ton of fun. Very much unlike any Christmas song you’d hear from anyone other than Mannheim Steamroller.

In fact, this song bears only a passing resemblance to the classic tune. It does include the original melody in some parts, but there’s only just enough of that to remind you that it is Frosty The Snowman they’re playing. Most of the music is a techno beat with different riffs played over it. The liner notes hinted at a video of Frosty doing a techno dance to this song, but I don’t think that ever materialized, which is a shame because it would have to be amazing.

Have a listen and add some funk to your Christmas playlists!
