There are only two days left till Christmas and if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent the last few weeks listening to Christmas music. There are a lot of older Christmas classics that gets played every year. Almost everyone is familiar with Judy Garland singing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas or Nat King Cole singing The Christmas Song but there are a lot of other songs that seem to have gotten lost over the years. Here is a list of my favourite vintage Christmas songs that you may not have heard.
1. June Hutton – Song of the Sleigh Bells
2. Mabel Scott – Boogie Woogie Santa Claus
3. Ella Fitzgerald – Santa Clause Got Stuck In My Chimney
4. Louis Armstrong – Christmas Night in Harlem
5. Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra – Marshmallow World
This performance always cracks me up. I think they may have had a few too many Christmas cocktails before going onstage.
6. The Enchanters – Mambo Santa Mambo
7. The Andrews Sisters – Christmas Island
8. Louis Armstrong – Christmas In New Orleans
9. Louis Prima & His New Orleans Gang – What Will Santa Say (When He Finds Everybody Singin’)
10. Bing Crosby – Happy Holiday
