With Christmas just days away, what better way to celebrate the season than to enjoy the dulcet tones of the Dallas Stars as they share their warmest greetings of the season. The Dallas Stars’ last Christmas album was such a resounding hit that left Stars fans asking for more.
Volume II promises to bring the feel of the rink to your home with all its smells, sights and sounds.
The entire team joins in to share their version of Wham!’s 1980’s hit. Instead of giving away their hearts during the holiday season, the Stars are celebrating the fact that their season hasn’t been given away like it was at this time last year. Dallas leads the league with 52 points whereas last season right before Christmas the Stars were mired down in the Central at 14-14-5. This year, to save the fans from tears, the Stars are hoping for a continuation of this special season.
Rockin’ Around the Trophy Tree
This classic by Brenda Lee has been re-done by the trio of Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and John Klingberg. The euphonious sound coming from the trio will set dreams of Hart, Norris and Ross trophies dancing in your heads. Yes, the season has a long way to go but this trio looks primed to hit the top of charts with this famous Christmas party song. Of course, a visit from Mr. Stanley would always be welcome.
I’m Dreaming of a White Scoresheet
The goaltending duo of Antii Niemi and Kari Lehtonen takes center stage as they attempt to blank the opposition and keep the Stars on top of the division. Both Finns will take their traditional Finnish sauna break on Christmas Eve but not before they regale the listeners with bold tales from the north of stopping the vulcanized rubber of their enemies. One word of caution: when Lehtonen sings he will sometimes disappear unexpectedly and Niemi will suddenly take over the melody.
Carol of the Goal Horn
Yes, The Carol of the Bells is a musical staple at Christmas-time, but the Stars have their own version with their cacophonous goal horn blowing throughout the song. The song has become a big hit in Dallas but not so much in Minnesota, Montreal, Carolina or Winnipeg where the horn tends to blow like six times during the course of the song. We’re still not sure why.
Grandma Got Run Over by Jamie Benn
Poor grandma! She tried to move a puck up the boards and then like something out of a disaster film, was leveled by the Dallas Stars’ captain. Someone should have mentioned she needed to keep her head up. But then again just ask Mark Giordano, Nazim Kadri and Jeff Petry how they felt meeting Jamie Claus. Benn takes a solo on this song accompanied by Pantera.
