extremely charmed by bang dream's minor halloweeny variant of its main theme

they did it again for christmas: youtube.com/watch?v=e4aacHgG0P

naturally the halloween one was minor and had a theremin-y synth, and this one is major and has sleigh bells, but the reharmonization here is just 😗 👌

the I I+ vi6 I7 progression doesn't evoke any specific christmas song for me (maybe i'm forgetting one?) but it's exactly the right kind of harmonic cliche that evokes christmas music more generally. good job, bang dream composers
