Thanks Vic...
...good gosh, I did forget to mention that none other than Steve Allen wrote this! Sorry Steverino, wherever you are!

Tonight show is where you should be
Those were the days of innocence and fun. I'm so old I actually remember the Steve Allen version of the Tonight Show.

Thanks Tom!
I don't remember Steve's stint on the "Tonight Show" but I was and still am a huge fan of his humor (his playfulness with words especially tickled me). Nice hearing from you and Happy Holidays, Michael

Swing it Michael
Elves smoking crack - now I know where the mayor of Toronto can work after he's out of office.

Terrific Michael. No one lights up a swinging song like you do. Seriously fine singing mixed with enough merry-making to fill the whole season long. God Yule, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. And thanks for the early gift too.

And it gets worse Doug...
...just the afternoon following my recording of this song, I was informed (by an informant of course) that the FBI arrested three of Santa's 11 elves. The details were sketchy, but there was mention of Santa, a frame-up, Blitzen mysteriously falling "ill" and a murder rap. I think they were also tied in with the Vegas mob if I remember correctly. Hey, you are such a great inspiration to all of us Doug. I often study your incredible music wishing I could do the same thing (really, I try it myself, but wind up with something of a MIDI file massacre on my hands) and at the same time you spread good cheer and instill confidence in so many of us. That's a rare combination in my book, so don't ever change! Thank you so much and wishing you and yours the merriest! Michael

Thanks so much!
There are some who've told me with my glasses on that I kind of resemble Steve Allen, which is fine with me because I always loved his style of humor. Nice hearing from you and hoping you have a really fine Christmas this year! Michael

I was thinking about you yesterday ... I was wondering when you would post a song especially for Christmas. This is great! I love your crack voice!
Merry Christmas Michael

Thanks so much Stan!
You know, there was so little to this song that I just HAD to put those munchkins in there somewhere (I nearly put in a trumpet solo on top of Alan's track to fill in space, but my little trumpet synth came out sounding like somebody playing a Chiclet box--one day, I will gain complete, exultant mastery of these things I'm sure!) Great hearing from you and I'd like to take this time to thank you for all the WONDERFUL music you've shared over the year; I'm sure the best is yet to come Stan. HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Michael

Alas...
..their wrestling career came to an abrupt termination after they were jumped by George "The Animal" Steel from the top rope. These things happen in life. Thanks so very much for coming by and leaving with some very nice words--you take care now and may this Christmas be everything you want it to be. Take care now! Michael

Bouncy and energetic. Lots of fun. This is how the season should be be -well, maybe not the way those naughty elves are behaving. Love it, Michael!

See, I would have kind of enjoyed making you throw up (I crave drama you know) but seriously Cees, I greatly appreciate those positive words, especially from such a fine musician as yourself. It means a lot! Thanks again and sending you my best regards this holiday season. Take care now! Michael

Steve Allen...
So many only know him as a talk show guy and comedian of sorts. He was quite the song writer. I love it that you bring gems like this to MacJams. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
michaeljayklein said 1399 days ago (December 24th, 2013)
Hi Jack!
Oh yes, I believe I read somewhere that Allen wrote some astronomical number of songs, although this song, "This Could be the Start of Something Big" and his extrapolation of "Moonglow" for the movie "Picnic" are probably his best known. Glad you enjoyed this and grateful for the kind review. You take care now--and MERRY CHRISTMAS! Michael

You caught the spirit of the season with that special swing that is all yours.
Have a great Holiday Michael.

I read a book some time ago regarding people who were rated as "the coolest", and you know, Steve had a whole chapter to himself! I'm so happy you liked this Charlie--thank you so very much! You have my sincere and warmest wishes at this time of the year when I usually take stock of the things I've enjoyed and appreciated over the past year, and your friendship and music take a prominent spot on that list. MERRY CHRISTMAS! Michael

Classic MJK
Michael, you can pitch a song like no other! This is perfectly performed. Your vocal style is in good form here and it's absolutely perfect for the season. You never disappoint. I hope that 2014 will see a groundswell of new hits from you.
