Dec. 21 - Jingle Cats creator, Mike Spalla, releases a new jingle cats video as well as 100 songs through Google Music. John Russell reports.
It wouldn't be a cat-tastic holiday season without a new song from the Jingle Cats: the kittens who first meowed their way onto the music scene in 1992 with the "Jingle Bells" medley. This year Mike Spalla's Jingle Cats are back to celebrate another holiday season with a new music video. SOUNDBITE Jingle Cats producer Mike Spalla saying (English): "Well, this year the jingle cats are singing one of the greatest songs of all time, 'Feliz Navidad,' and it's the Jingle Cats singing with the Jingle Dogs. And, it's really interesting because the cats are singing some of the the musical instruments parts and the dogs are also doing that and then the lead parts are sung by the cats and the dogs. But it really sounds great." Spalla is also releasing 100 songs on Google Music, including a few that have never been heard. The Jingle Cats and Dogs' DVDs and albums are available at www.jinglecats.com. Spalla hopes that next year the furry adventure, "Jingle Cats 3D," which he began filming last year, will be ready for a Christmas release. John Russell, Reuters
