Where is Santa? (Alan Levine/flickr)

Lo! It is the sixteenth day of Christmas, which means time to download a bonkers synth-pop cover of ¿Dónde Está Santa Claus? by composer and Alarm Will Sound hornist, Matt Marks. The original recording, which became a one-hit wonder for 12 year-old Augie Rios in 1959, remained in obscurity for decades until it resurfaced in the 2011 film A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (now a holiday classic).

Visit Q2 Music's 2014 Advent Calendar every day in December through Christmas Eve to download a free holiday-themed musical nugget from the Q2 community.

I'm loving this musical Advent calendar, and especially enjoyed today's (Dec. 16) On such a gray, blah morning, it got my pulse pumping and really put a smile on my face. Keep up the tunes, and thanks again! (I like to open my Advent calendar windows while your daily tunes play.)
