Friday Funk: Christmas in Hollis



CHECKIN OUT RUN-DMC'S CLASSIC "CHRISTMAS IN HOLLIS"

-Run DMC is listed as the producers of the song.
-Co-Producers: Rick Rubin, Russel Simmons, and Steve Ett.
-The Naughty/Nice device that the elf is utilizing has got to be a modified Simon game.
-Released in 1987 on A Very Special Christmas album, all proceeds went to the Special Olympics.
-Run is rocking the sleek Portland Trailblazers' coat; by miles Portland is the second furthest NBA franchise from Hollis, New York.
-Top three scorers on the 1987-88 Trailblazers: Clyde Drexler, Kiki Vandweghe, and Jerome Kersey.
-The song was featured in the original Die Hard movie.
-This song was the only origianl song featured on the Special Christmas album, all others were covers of carols and other Christmas songs.
-The song's sample is Clarence Carter's "Back Door Santa".
-Mrs. Claus also calls her husband "Back Door Santa" from time to time.
-That's because he and Rudolph can run a perfect pick and roll play on the basketball court, get your mind out of the gutter, you pervert.
-A few of the names on the Naughty/Nice screen: Coco (Fiji), Big "O" (New York), Bobby Lee (Hong Kong), Tim Simpson (Chicago).
-No word if DMC actually shot the deer head above the fireplace.
-Other famous Hollis natives: Stephen A Smith and Al Sharpton
-When Run removes the license from Santa's wallet, is it a standard license, or did he have to get a special Sleigh Operator's stamp?
-It was featured on Run DMC's Together Forever, a greatest hits compilation.
-More names that appear on the Naughty/Nice screen: Iman Zumbal (Nigeria), Mette Madsen (Oslo), and Paul Raymond (Sydney).
-Song before this on the Special album: "Gabriel's Message" by Sting.
-According to Wikipedia, Collard Greens are also called borekale.

"Chillin and coolin just like a snowman"

great tune. Jam Master Jay deserves props for his part, his reworking of the original is straight butter.
