Little Saint Nick

Music by Brian Wilson and Mike Love

Originally Performed by Beach Boys

"Little Saint Nick" is a holiday-themed hot rod song about Santa Claus' sled, written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for American rock band the Beach Boys. The song was first released as a single on December 9, 1963, and peaked at number 3 on Billboard magazine's special seasonal weekly Christmas Singles chart. Its B-side was an a cappella cover of "The Lord's Prayer".

The idea for the song was partly inspired by record producer Phil Spector's plans to record a Christmas album. Wilson recalled: "I wrote the lyrics to it while I was out on a date and then I rushed home to finish the music." Some of its rhythm and structure derives from the group's "Little Deuce Coupe", also co-written by Wilson and released as a single six months earlier. Love was not originally listed as the co-writer of "Little Saint Nick". His credit was awarded after a 1990s lawsuit.

    Release Date: 1963

Finally and gloriously come the Pogue's sublime piece of musical domestic rivalry "Fairytale Of New York". All are expertly arranged for SSA choir with piano accompaniment and range from easy to intermediate level. This mix of fun and mischievous Christmas songs will put a smile on the faces of choirs and audiences alike.
