So many ... Elvis' Blue Christmas, Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me, I'll Be Home For Christmas, Santa Claus is Back in Town and If Everyday Was Like Christmas, which should get more airplay; shows why, no matter what Elvis sings, he is the King!  Johnny Mathis' version of O' Holy Night; The Carpenters' Merry Christmas, Darling; Brenda Lee's Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree; Nat King Cole's Christmas Song; Phil Specter's Christmas Album (with The Ronettes, Darlene Love, et al.); The Eagles' Please Come Home for Christmas; WCBS-FM's Christmas Doo-Wopp CD Series, in particular, The Skyliners' My Christmas Always and Johnny Maestro & The Brooklyn Bridge's Christmas Serenade; Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You and, yes, Alvin & The Chipmunks.  Happiness to all and to all a safe, healthy and peaceful holiday season!

Does singing to yourself count as listening? This one was written by a shipmate on the Henry Clay (SSBN 625). It goess like this: Blown away, are the houses. All that's left, are giant mouses. They roar when they squeak. They're just one more freak. Walking in a nuclear holocaust.

Think twice before you go out. There's a blanket of nuclear fallout. Don't play in the park, or you'll glow in the dark. Walking in a nuclear holocaust.

Etc...

Last Christmas - Wham! Cover by Gwen Stefani

 

I like her version better than the original! She gives it a doo-wap feel that makes the song sound like it came straight out of the 60’s rather than the 80’s.

O Holy Night sung by Johnny Mathis makes me think of my Dad who passed away three years ago. He was a BIG fan.
