My Advent Calendar of Music – Day #19: Blues and Rhythm

What’s that you say, Skippy? Your sweetie’s far from home? Well, just tell him/her to “Please Come Home For Christmas”:

No need to be so melancholy – let’s play something a little more upbeat. Here’s Bruce Springsteen’s rendition of “Merry Christmas, Baby”:

Let’s check out what’s playing over at the local honkytonk – oh, look! It’s “Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy”; that’s a fun song:

And you can’t have a Blue Christmas when listening to Elvis Presley’s rockabilly version of “Winter Wonderland”:

Way down South, they know how to raise your spirits – you can’t stay sad for long when listening to the Cajun/Zydeco beat of “Louisiana Christmas Day”:

    Hmmmm the Eagles doing a cover of a Christmas standard…I like it! Passed on Springsteen. Pasley’s song was fun…wonder if you could line dance to it…or is it better as a two step. Elvis doing Winter Wonderland was not bad, but I am partial to his version of Blue Christmas (and the updated version with Martina McBride…great editing there!) is not bad at all! Aaron’s upbeat Christmas tune does get ones foot a-tappen!
