Quadruple Rudolph

Rudolph is an incredible song (and story),

Especially in light of its economy of words.

In some ways it reminds me of Barry Manilow’s Coco Cabana. Both songs tell a vivid and detailed story upon listening. But when you look at the lyrics you’ll be stunned by how few words each song has. That in a nutshell is the magic of songwriting. Less is more in too many ways to count. Or rather, to paraphrase Occam’s Razor, write a song in as few words as possible, but never fewer. Or maybe that’s not Occam’s Razor. For the record I never understood Occam’s Razor. But I do understand Rudolph. Rudoph, I know you’re out there, and thank you for all you’ve done.” #RudolphRocks
