This song is currently free and I'm totally thrilled because it is one of my kids favorite holiday songs from a great old holiday special "The year w/o a Santa Claus" (I think) It reminds me of when I was a kid and I'd watch that Xmas special and now my children are enjoying the show and music as well! It's worth the .99 but even better FREE! Happy Holidays!!

Mr. Heatmiser is slower than some of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's other songs, but it's still a fine, big band reminiscence of The Year Without a Santa Claus. (If BBVD wanted to be completely faithful to that Rankin/Bass TV special, it would have named the track Mr. Heat Miser, two words.)

If your Christmas mix keeps looping around to the same old songs, this makes a great change of pace. Especially since it's free.

This is one of those songs that many younger people don't get. They haven't seen the tv special that it comes from and they just don't understand the meaning. But for those of us who are old enough to remember that Rankin-Bass special, it's perfect! I can't think of a better group to do the remake and it makes me smile every time I hear it. It's just a fun little song, and the price can't be beat.

This is an entertaining song. While it does mention Christmas in the chorus, it really isn't necessarily a Christmas song, per se. The real focus is on two characters with polar opposite preferences of weather and temperature. Since I have not been fortunate enough to see the original special that this song came from, I can't comment on where it fits into the story, but I think the fact that this song isn't strongly attached to the holiday actually makes it a bit more of an evergreen song. Listen in the middle of the summer and call yourself Heat Miser if you like. I'm happy being a Snow Miser...

As to the quality of the song, first of all, when it comes to modern swing, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy can't really go too far wrong. They are experts of the craft of making music that sounds like it was recorded decades ago but with impeccable fidelity. That said, this song is a bit slower tempo than their more popular songs, so if you are already familiar with their music, be warned that it isn't Zoot Suit Riot. It is still superbly crafted and is a refreshing change of tempo from the run of the mill Christmas fare. Since this song isn't really directly about the holiday, there isn't anything to object to. Unless you will only put religious music in your playlist, there is no reason not to give this excellent song a try. And if you are only looking for religious music, you don't need me to tell you this ain't it...

So many artists try to put a different twist on classic Christmas songs. Here's a truly different twist--a song that hasn't already been done to death. I'll admit my bias--The Year Without a Santa Claus was one of my favorite Christmas specials growing up, and I just love Mr. Heat Miser. I loved that someone acknowledged that a sizable population lives in the sunbelt, where Christmas isn't about snow, but about sitting around the pool in shirt sleeves.

BBVD does a great job with the song. I often find them a little bland, but they've done a pretty swingin' job here. This song is definitely going in my favexmastunes playlist.

If you're looking for a fun, upbeat, different Christmas song, give this one a listen.

This was the theme song for the Miser bros. They were children of Mother Nature and guarded the way to the land from Santa's workshop. Each opposites, one hot one freezing, always dividing the land between them. A catchy tune that all children know and makes a good Christmas song for kids parties.

My new favorite holiday song. Love Big Bad Voodoo Daddy anyway but can't get the music and words to this one out of my head

This song brings back memories of watching the cartoon with my kids. Voodoo Daddies do a great job with it!
