Some more of interest:  Oh, Holy Night morphs to Hallelujah:

My sis has two songs (Holiday - kind of) on Women Of Substance Show #530 (second song) and #537 (last song).

Especially for those who will be traveling, or having family members travel, "Home for the Holidays" (Perry Como):


And some early rock and roll Christmas music from 1957, "Jingle Bell Rock" by Bobby Helms:


And, of course, here's Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" from 1958:


Then, going back to 1949, here's Gene Autry's classic, "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer":


Finally, going back even further to 1942, here's Bing Crosby's classic version of Irving Berlin's "White Christmas", which was featured in the movie "Holiday Inn":

Speaking of travel...here's a couple of worldly Christmas tunes, redone this year by recent BW guest, Kacey Musgraves. 

Firstly, the young multilingual Texan singing Spanish, por favor:




and now Hawaiian:



Of course, it's been difficult to hear the latter without being reminded of this "Christmas Vacation" clip, isn't it?:

I honestly never knew about this song from the band Angel until this year.  Oddly enough, it's actually buried on a compilation CD that I never really listen to that I've had for 16 years



It's not Christmas without Snoopy



Or Rankin Bass specials

Peter...Thanks for your input toward the final tally.  Time for me to weigh in...voting-wise.  My take on this week's Christmas related fab 4?

Gotta Go with Brian here.  Mr. Wilson grabs the gold.  Excellent album too.  A-1.  Sounds great every year...and it DOES make a great gift.
Moody Blues get the twos...and Silver.  Their Christmas album is also terrific.  Some different songs included.  Adds to the variety factor.
Bronze belongs to Chicago who also recorded some excellent Songs of the Season and made them all their own...and then there's Big Bad Bob Dylan who grabs a tin star to place atop ye old tree.  Nice album Bob...but I've had enough of you doing Frank Sinatra songs.  Thanks.


Truth be told I've had enough of EVERYBODY doin' those old standards.  Like Rod Stewart for what was it???  5 l.p.s worth?  Good gawd!!!! Give it a rest.  [Chicago's big band album was excellent though.  But then they only did it once.  Ya gotta know when to quit.]

My votes :

Gold - Chicago
Silver - Brian Wilson
Bronze - Moody Blues
Tin - Bob Dylan

Voted the more funky Chicago track as gold so here's another funky track that never gets any plays . Al Green and Feels Like Christmas


The only track I make a point of playing at Christmas....and still have the 45rpm

This one reduces me to a blubbering wreck !

Little Dutch girl , Amira Willighagen when she was 11 years old !!!!

If I'm not already sobbing half way through , the final crescendo finishes me off .

Can't understand why the audience don't give her a standing ovation ?
