    I did miss it. Damnit.

    Looks like I gotta go out and buy a replacement for the Charlie Brown Xmas DVD that disappeared last year.

    O Tannenbaum maybe?

    "Christmas Time is Here" has some vocals.

    i can't utilize those links on my phone (damn helio). i do know that it's the uber-popular one. probably the one they play throughout the show, especially when charlie brown is feeling sorry for himself. it's just so sweet and tender. IIRC, there are long stretches of the peaceful piano before the kids start doing their choral part.

    i'll try to phonetics the general tune...

    du-du-duuuuuu du-du-du-duuuuuu
    du-du-duuuuuu du-du-du-du

    and it goes from there.

    That's the problem...I have it. But I lost the Xmas one. I think I left it at my parents' house or my sister's house last year and it's under a pile of crap.

    Of course, the only one I really wanted out of the set was the Xmas one. I enjoy Halloween, but could get by watching it on TV once a year, and the Thanksgiving one is meh.

    The Christmas Time is Here on the show has vocals, but there's a long, elegant instrumental version on the album.

    From the duuuuuus, sounds like instrumental Christmas Time is Here

    you're probably right, meat.

    i love it. something about it seaps into the soul and bandies about and makes the whole rest of the day peaceful.
