2015 December – Tired of the same old Christmas songs? We were so we created something new, something high-energy, something unique, something that included our favorite Christmas character. Here then is a new old Christmas song based a song from the 1920s called Cotton Mill Colic which David Lindley calls Cotton Mill Blues. Some of the original lyrics have been changed up and Scrooge gets redeemed, as he should. Really, there aren’t too many Christmas songs about Scrooge. Plenty of movies but not too many songs. I don’t know that I understand that. He’s got a good story to write about. He’s an iconic figure. Maybe you’ll write a good song about him. Give it a shot! The album version will be on the upcoming A Whiplash Christmas III (Whiplash Records). We’ll let you know when that is available but we know that you’ll go to this site to get it: Whiplash Records Sales . For now enjoy The Ballad of Ebenezer Scrooge (Money Mill Colic) (Single Version)
