The original 1957 recording of Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock" with Hank Garland on guitar.
For the past nine years, this one . . .
"It ain't Christmas if there ain't no snow..."
Mine too. With loving memories of Mama Majorlance (1939-2015).
Leonard Cohen,some warm brandy,and MaCabe & Mrs Miller on the TV is my holiday ritual
That's the Spirit!
I've had this one since I was 5. Still great to listen to while sipping a cool Manhattan in front of a fire.
Oh dear God, suddenly I feel so empty and unfulfilled....and here I thought nothing could fulfill the hole in my soul created from getting a Mr. Hanky album under the tree, back during the Bush Administration...
My wife can't stand it...but for me, it's Cheech and Chong - "Santa Claus and His Old Lady".
This made me choke with laughter as a kid...and still makes me bust a gut today. It's essential.
Love this album.
And another. Beautiful harmonies as always and includes a great original.
A Motorhead tour in November!!!!
Not all Christmas songs but terrific nevertheless.
Bobby Helms's Jingle Bell Rock
If you like traditional English carols you can't beat this one.
It just isn't Christmas without...catching A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Frosty The Snowman on TV.
On the music side, somebody mentioned it above. I know it has its detractors, but it just isn't Christmas without hearing Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime" on the car radio, in the grocery store, or walking through the mall. Time has been kind to this song. It has now reached "sentimental" status. There was a time I really disliked it. Now I look forward to it!
