Here’s something to make your Christmas Eve lively. After spending considerable time previewing YouTube videos, I have picked five that are unique. Unless you are a Grinch, you will enjoy them a lot. Sorry about the ads that come before the good stuff. Don’t forget to click the icon that let’s you watch them in full-screen.
The first is a clip from the 2018 Netflix movie The Christmas Chronicles. Kurt Russel does a pretty good job singing the Elvis classiC “Santa Claus Is Back In Town.”
Next is an animated video of Chuck Berry singing a terrific song he wrote called “Run Rudolph Run.” This song has been covered by dozens of other singers, but you can’t beat Chuck’s original.
I have purchased just about every rock & roll Christmas album and CD there is. In my opinion, Randy Bachman (of Bachman-Turner Overdrive) has produced the absolute best.
If you can find this CD, buy it. You will be super happy you did. Do you remember the BTO hit “Taking Care of Business”? Randy Bachman has redone it as a Christmas song.
Years ago, I discovered a song by the Tractors called “Santa Claus Is Coming In A Boogie Woogie Choo-Choo Train.” It has been a favored part of my Christmas playlist ever since.
My buddy Troy has an Elvis blog called “The Mystery Train.” When I saw this next video, I sent it to him and suggested it would be perfect for his blog. Well, it hasn’t showed up there yet, so here it is on ElvisBlog.
And we will end with an Elvis classic “Blue Christmas,” with a little help from Martina McBride.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this selection of unique Christmas music videos.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY
