Patrick Stewart is obviously one of the most well-respected actors of our time, having got his start as a Shakespearean actor before moving to some rather notable television and film roles. Despite his numerous notable roles, I still can’t help but think “Hey, it’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard” anytime I see Stewart.
Now the classic song Let It Snow, is often considered a Christmas song, even though there’s no mention of Christmas in it. It makes sense with the season, though, as the whole northern hemisphere is generally feeling Old Man Winter’s cold, steely grip when Christmas rolls around. Fun fact that I stole from Professor Wikipedia:
“Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!“, also known as “Let It Snow“, is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945. It was written in Hollywood, California during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.
So yeah, while many people think of it as being a holiday standard, it was actually written at the height of summer… In California.
Still, given the snow we’re getting today (and the slick road conditions it’s creating), it seems rather fitting to share this version of Let It Snow as performed by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Commander William Riker and other members of the crew of the Starship Enterprise.
James Covenant, the YouTuber who created that masterpiece out of scenes cut from Star Trek: The Next Generation, has created something similar from the other Star-themed film franchise, Star Wars. Here’s Chewbacca singing Silent Night:
Here’s another mashup of Captain Picard rapping or singing or whatever:
If you’re heading out in the snow today, remember… Resistance is futile. Take it easy out there. We’ve all got places to get to.
