This is my favorite version of the song, because it swings. It’s from the Perry Como album I played a gazillion times when I was a kid.
This whole soundtrack is fantastic.
If you’re just joining us, I’m posting some of my Christmas songs. Here’s Dean Martin.
I first heard this song on a commercial several years ago (Macy’s? The Gap? Target?) and it instantly became one of my favorites. It’s by Kay Starr, who passed away last November.
There are many versions of this song. This one by Dean Martin is one of my favorites.
The other day I posted the very joyous, uplifting “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” by Andy Williams, so I thought I’d post something very different today. It’s a beautiful tune written by Carol Hall for the play The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Dolly Parton does a great version. This is sung by Leigh Nash.
For the rest of the month I’m going to post some of my favorite Christmas songs. First up: Andy Williams.
I don’t know why The Brian Setzer Orchestra decided to turn the theme from The Flintstones into a Christmas song, but I’m glad they did.
OK, this is a quite different than the song in the previous post. From the 1956 album Ski Trails, it’s Jo Stafford with Paul Weston and His Orchestra doing “Sleigh Ride.”
I’m old school when it comes to Christmas songs – Dean Martin, Rosemary Clooney, Perry Como – and there are only a handful of modern holiday tunes I like. This is one. It was written by Carol Hall (for The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas) and Dolly Parton does a great version. I really like this one too, by Leigh Nash.
