A Christmas Mixlist | Home Alone
I remember when the announcer declared that “Step Up 2″ was a movie that defined the voice of a generation. My jaw dropped at such an egregious statement and I immediately screamed, “Bullskeet!” I guess that’s what you gotta do to sell a movie these days. There is, however, a movie that did actually define a voice of a generation as far as Christmas was concerned. That movie was “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.” One of my favorite parts was the movie score. While the grownups have John Cougar Mellencamp for their Christmas renditions, the kids have John Williams, the movies’ composer, to thank for creating the perfect Christmas mood.
Setting The Trap – John Williams
“You can mess with a lot of things, but you can’t mess with kids on Christmas!”
This is the song when Kevin McCallister is running. Christmas can be scary too.
