Jingleing Bells

So many, many cool bell songs. I'm working on another Kickstarter for Christmas. Maybe it should be called Jingleing

My Jazz Camp Girlfriends and I saw Herb Alpert at Yoshi's in Oakland in December for a CD release of his new Christmas album.  The show was fabulous and it was fun to hear him sing The Bell That Couldn't Jingle that was a hit when I was in elementary school.

Some other bell songs that I could possible include ...

I love those J-I-N-G-L-E Bells sung by Frank Sinatra and Jing Jing-a-Ling by the Andrews Sisters.

There are lots of versions of the Carol of the Bells, but my favorites are the videos by The Muppets and the NBA. Click on the link to see them. 

And of course, Jingle Bells, but with a bossa nova beat.

And the bells need a little drum, don't you think?

Little Drummer Boy

The lyrics for all the songs are available at the link, and sometimes a karaoke track or lead sheet. Check it out.

Dashing through the snow 

In a one horse open sleigh 

O'er the fields we go 

Laughing all the way 

Bells on bob tails ring 

Making spirits bright 

What fun it is to laugh and sing 

A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way 

Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh 

Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way 

Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago 

I thought I'd take a ride 

And soon Miss Fanny Brice 

Was seated by my side 

The horse was lean and lank 

Misfortune seemed his lot 

We got into a drifted bank 

And then we got upsot

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way 

Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh
