about

On "It's a Crime Scene Christmas," we find a vivacious Kerry Pastine exuding the spirit, joy and good cheer with which the yuletide season is usually equated. Of course, the men piloting this hot rod sleigh are the one-and-only "Crime Scene." This unruly gang of roots rock & roll instrumentalists perform with a verve that has not been felt since the days of the swingin ‘60s! Oh yes, Pauly Six, Mad Dog and Lance Romance produce a magical winter wonderland of sound, of which Kerry effortlessly skates across to bring you the sweet sounds of these wondrous modern holidays.

On this offering, the Crime Scene is simply overflowing with the spirit of the season. The band clocks in a whopping eight original tunes that are certain to become an integral part of the traditional holiday music canon. Or, in the case of the Crime Scene, is it more of a holiday music "cannon?" Mindful that Christmas albums normally highlight the religious and the solemn, Kerry Pastine and the Crime Scene chose in this album to instead stress the festive aspect of the holidays. Hence the liberty employed in the band’s selection of songwriting topics. As if to ask: Why not enjoy the spirits, joy and happiness of Christmas all of the year 'round?

So here is "It's a Crime Scene Christmas" -- eight happy, winter songs, delivered in such a way that suggests that yours be a rockin' Christmas and a swingin' New Year!

Track Name: Dream of Christmas Day
The snow is sparklin’ in the moonlight tonight
It’s Christmas eve, I wish you were holding me tight
Until tomorrow
All I can do is dream of Christmas day with you.

I’m sittin’ here warming my heart by the fire
I’m reading your love letters, filled with desire
Until tomorrow
All I can do is dream of Christmas day with you

You promised you’d be with me on Christmas eve
In the snow we’d kiss under the mistletoe
I’m hoping and praying that you’re on your way
I’ll wake up to hold you on Christmas day

Whenever I feel alone and blue
I close my eyes and picture your smile - ooooh
Until tomorrow
All I can do is dream of Christmas day with you

You promised you’d be with me on Christmas eve
In the snow we’d kiss under the mistletoe
I’m hoping and praying that you’re on your way
I’ll wake up to hold you on Christmas day

If ever you doubt my love is true
Just think of me by the Christmas tree waiting for you
Until tomorrow
All I can do is dream of Christmas day with you

Dream of Christmas day with you

Dream of Christmas day

Hey Santa

Now Santa
Have I been naughty or nice

Hey Santa
Are ya coming my way, yeah yeah

Sipping holiday spirits in a big red bow

Track Name: New Year's Day My Way
You didn’t give me nothin’ on Christmas day
Said I’d see a pretty diamond comin’ my way

So bye-bye, I’m gonna fly
Goodbye old flame, I’m on the midnight train
It’s time to celebrate New Year’s Day my way

Early mornin’ kisses like the day we met
But tonight your lightin’ her cigarette

So bye-bye, I’m gonna fly
I’ll make my way to San Francisco Bay
And I’ll be celebrating New Year’s Day my way

Heard ya got big plans for New Years Eve
My party started early and you better believe

I’m gonna fly, so baby bye-bye
Raise my glass of champagne
No more ball and chain
I’m celebrating my New Year my way

So bye-bye
So bye-bye

Goodbye old flame, I’m on a midnight train
Hip hip hooray, oh by the way
I’m celebrating New Year’s Day my way

Never was a girl who said pretty please
I don’t need presents on Christmas eve
Couldn’t care less about Ho Ho Ho
I’m a real wild one so let’s rock and roll

Got no idea I’m comin your way
I make my own holiday
Cuz it’s a crime scene Christmas
Yeah it’s a crime scene Christmas

Sneakin' down the stairs creepin' thru the snow
Kissing all the boys under the mistletoe
Eating Santa’s cookies, got one for the road
A flask of eggnog, come on let’s go

Got no idea I’m comin' your way
I make my own holiday
Celebrate the season loose and fast
Cattin' around with my dirty rats

Cuz it’s a crime scene Christmas
Yeah, it’s crime scene Christmas
Well, it's a crime spree Christmas
Yeah, it's a devilish Christmas

Naughty little holidays are what I like
Cheap thrills if you will, I’ll leave ya high and dry
Jolly good spirits to make it last
I’m a spooky ghost from Christmas past

Got no idea I’m comin' your way

Deck the halls with boughs of holly

Sleep tight little angel under heavenly light
From a saint to a sinner on Christmas night
Dirty black stocking and a lump of coal
Delinquent little devil gonna rock and roll

You got no idea I’m comin your way

Cattin’ around with my dirty rats

Track Name: Santa's Movin'
Santa Claus is coming, he’s bringing your toys tonight
Yeah old Saint Nick is on his sleigh tonight
Come Christmas morning, you’re gonna be shiny and bright

Don’t ya worry or fret, Santa knows just what you like
No fretting or fussing, he always gets it right
You’ll be dancing, smiling and feeling high as a kite

He’s gonna go North, East, South, West
Every which way
As long as he's movin'
Long as he's movin'
Long as he's movin'
Christmas will be here

If you love Santa, you’ll know just what to do
Remember jolly old Saint Nicholas loves you too
Just leave him a note, some milk and a cookie or two

Christmas time is here to remind you to be real nice
Santa’s got a list of all who are naughty or nice
And you better believe he’s gonna be checking it twice

He’s gonna go North, East, South, West
Every which way
As long as he's movin'
Long as he's movin'
Long as he's movin'
Christmas will be here

Can you feel the meaning behind those glistening lights
Tell everybody you love em, then hold em tight
Giving from your heart feels outta sight

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to you
May good tidings of joy last you the whole year through
Holly jolly Christmas, Kwanzaa & Hanukkah too

He’s gonna go North, East, South, West
Every which way
As long as he's movin'
Long as he's movin'
Long as he's movin'
Christmas will be here
Track Name: Happy New Year
As the season fades away, I hope joy came your way
And you felt the love you hold in your heart
No matter what we say, we need the holidays
To cherish each and every day

Happy New Year
This sweet life is dear
So I ask you to keep love near

Remember this my dear, if we’re blessed with other years
We’ll face troubles that will make us strong
If darkness comes today, let your memory light the way
For your past has brought you oh so far

Happy New Year
This sweet life is dear
So I ask you to keep love near

Happy New Year
If you shed a tear
Raise your glass to those no longer here

Say I love you when you’re scared
Feels so good when you share
What you have, what you want, what you need

You have much more than you know
You have much more than you show
I can see inside, your heart is free

Happy New Year
This sweet life is dear
So I ask you to keep love near

Happy New Year
If you shed a tear
Raise your glass to spreading love and cheer

Happy New Year
This sweet life is dear
So I ask you to keep love near

Happy New Year
If you shed a tear
Raise your glass to all of you with us here

So I ask you to keep love near

Raise a glass to a new wonderful new year
