Hunting for green things in the produce aisle at Whole Foods, I hear the opening strains of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." Ugh. I liked this when I was nine. Like most secular Christmas songs aimed primarily at kids, it hasn't aged well.
I grumble to myself for a bit, then realize it isn't quite as annoying as I'd anticipated. The arrangement is one I haven't heard before.
And yet, there's something familiar ...
My god. It's Jack Johnson.
Jack Johnson is making "Rudolph" ... not entirely suck.
See, there's a reason I buy every album this man puts out.
