Here's something I'm sure you folks haven't heard. Johnny Maestro from the Crests and Brooklyn Bridge fame and Larry Chance who sang with the Earls. Enjoy!

I heard this classic on the radio the other day.
I grew up 35 miles north of NYC and remember going to see the window dressing in the stores and Rockefeller Center as a child.
My mom would sing this song every Christmas. She had a lovely voice, very similar to the female voice in this song.

I always loved this rendition of "Little Drummer Boy" by Bing Crosby and David Bowie.

I'm surprised this wasn't first. Such a classic.



I also have always had a weak spot for this one. Just makes me smile.

Thanks for posting "All I Want For Christmas Is You"... it's a beautiful version of the song. It was recorded by Santa's Doo Wop Helpers, with Joel Katz singing lead and Johnny Maestro, Larry Chance and Bobby Jay singing backup.

I love " White Christmas " . I watch that movie every year . My Dad used to take us on a Christmas trip when we were little . We would take the train into Philadelphia and then we would go see Santa and do some shopping and then lunch at horn & hardart's and finally a movie . The last year we did the trip we saw "White Christmas "so that song brings back great memories of times with my Dad .

My favorite old classic Christmas songs are "Silent Night" and "White Christmas"....one of my faves in more recent years is of questionable taste (add a bit more BBQ sauce or seasoning as necessary)....

Emerson Lake and Palmer - this is the only version I could find to play here, but it is one of my favorites.

My hands down favorite and I have and enjoy a lot of Christmas music. My CD jukebox stays loaded all year long with 50 Christmas CD's and anytime I am feeling blue I crank it up for an hour or so. On Thanksgiving once the pie and coffee is over we turn it on and that is the music till New Years Day.

I like Elvis's "Blue Christmas" and Johnny Winter's version of "Please come home for Christmas".

Switching to a different holiday, I always found this one quite amusing.
