Weekend Diversion: The Christmas Rush

Last year I posted a video by Mike Tompkins, who did an a cappella cover of Taio Cruz’ Dynamite. I thought it was remarkable because Tompkins made all the music—vocals and instruments alike—by voice and mouth.

A few days ago, Tompkins released the video above of The Christmas Rush, an original song he co-wrote. He again makes all the sounds by mouth. The YouTube description has the lyrics, and a link for buying the song through iTunes, all of which is good.

Personally, I just like fun videos, especially at this time of year.

The intro/bass line reminds me of What Christmas Means To Me by Stevie Wonder.

You're right! And, somehow I'd never heard that song before…
