AUDIO: Joe Quinto – “The Night I Got Santa Claus Stoned”
We all know how evasive Santa Claus can be. But even he has slip ups once in a while—this track is the story of one of his latest. Over an instrumental composed solely of a laid-back finger-picked chord progression on the guitar, Joe Quinto sings the story of how he left some pot cookies that he couldn’t finish out on the table. The few he had put him right to sleep, the rest were snagged by the big man himself.
His imagination then takes over, pondering whether Santa should be driving his sleigh, if the children of the world will get their gifts, etc. Quinto’s voice is as easygoing as the guitar underneath it, making for a level of chill to match of the cozy Christmas classics.
