Elvis at Christmas

Posted in music by adeli on December 22, 2008

Here are some Elvis holiday classics:

Blue Christmas

If I Get Home On Christmas Day

Winter Wonderland

This year, RCA released Elvis Presley Christmas Duets, in which female country stars, such as Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes, Wynonna Judd, Amy Grant, Anne Murray, and Sara Evans, sing along with Elvis on some of his holiday classics. They did a good job, and here are a few of them.

Elvis & Martina McBride – Blue Christmas

Elvis & Carie Underwood – I’ll Be Home For Christmas

Elvis & Amy Grant – White Christmas

Some of the ladies who had the honor to appear on this album.

My next few posts will focus on holiday music – old and new.

We’ll start with the old, but timeless, classics.

Dean Martin – Christmas Blues

Judy Garland – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Burl Ives – Holly Jolly Christmas

Frank Sinatra – I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day

The first holiday album I’ll recommend is Christmas With The Rat Pack. The album is a must-have, because Frank, Dean, and Sammy celebrate the holidays with panache. And the Rat Pack never goes out of style!

While all the songs are great, because these guys were the masters, the songs that stand out in this 21-song collection are the ones that arent’ the usual holiday fare. And they include: Christmas Time All Over The World, I Believe, Baby it’s Cold Outside, I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm, and Mistletoe and Holly.

So, let’s have Dino start things off with a performance of Marshmallow World.

Music for the Holiday Spirit

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring-ting tingling too.

Come on, it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling “yoo-hoo!”,

Come on, it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

 

As the holidays are approaching, music is the best way to get into the spirit of the season. My next posts will help you do just that.

I’ll recommend some holiday albums that will have your bells jingling, your lords a leapin’, and your wishing for a white Christmas!

We’ll see what the pop, rock, soul, and jazz worlds have to offer to bring about holiday cheer.
