It's Thanksgiving in the U.S., typically the day that kicks off the Christmas season. While Christmas, er, "Holiday" ads have been airing on TV for weeks already, it's time to really get into the Christmas spirit. The forecast is calling for Snow... Mark Snow!
Yes, it's the veritable classic, Ernest Saves Christmas.
Surprisingly, this is a fully symphonic effort (orchestrated by the very capable William Ross and Don Davis) from Snow, known mainly for his synth-based television scores. It's also incredibly bouyant (wasting no time getting started with an overture in track 1, "Ernest Saves Christmas", moving into the sweet "Christmas Spirit" and "Airport Shenanigans"). While by no means exceptional, it's a fairly effective Christmas flavoured score that helps set a holly-jolly mood ("Lift-Off", the appropriately titled "Snow For Christmas").
Just twenty-seven days until Christmas. Start getting ready! And check back for my Holiday music.
