The kids and I just watched Home Alone, which features snippets of the first two song. The Brenda Lee song is one of my favorites and Chuck Berry is no slouch either.

The Chipmunks song is another of the kids favorites.

I never thought much about the Jimmy Boyd song, in regard to who Boyd was. I never knew he was 13 when he recorded it! It's a classic.

The kids heard Blue Christmas by Elvis in the car today and started picking on it. For some reason, Elvis has become a lightning rod for their goffing around.

I don't know that I ever heard the original Nuttin For Christmas, better than I expected.

Once again, all classics!

I didn't realize that till I was doing this list either. I thought they just made him sound like a kid.

I wanted to play Blue Christmas too. (50s list could have been 16 songs).

After hearing Blue Christmas in the car today, I played the Porky Pig version for them. They thought it was funny. Me too.

I think you or someone else mentioned the porky pig version last year. That's a lot of fun \:\)

When I looked up Blue Christmas this week I read about how minor notes are called blue notes adding another layer of blue to the song.

The ones ythat I cherish the most from this group The Chipmunks'
"The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)" - who can't like this novelty song and Perry Como's "(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays" - a true classic by a singer from my state, Pennsylvania. Mr. Como was from Canonsburg, not too far from Pittsburgh, and originally was a barber. Another Canonsburg native was pop singer Bobby Vinton.

"(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays" is a favorite of mine too. I've been singing it in the car for weeks.
