Default Re: Christmas Songs.

Hi all. I know I'm late in getting in on this talk of Christmas songs but ,
an amazing Billboard Hot 100 Phenomenon that started last year has doubled this year!

Older (maybe even those no longer with us) artists are making the
Billboard Hot 100 (and top 40 / top 10) with their never before charted tunes!

Some have peaked and some a re still climbing trhe chart. Including Elcis's return to the top 40 over 37 years later.

Starting with Mariah Carey's first top 5 hit in 11 years!

3 - Mariah Carey All I Want For Christmas Is You
8 - Bobby Helms Jingle Bell Rock
9 - Brenda Lee Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree
10 - Burl Ives A Holly Jolly Christmas
11 - Nat King Cole The Christmas Song (Merry Christmas To You)
13 - (Andy had already reached #10 last week)
16 - Gene Autry Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
20 - Dean Martin Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

25 - Wham! Last Christmas (I was VERY happy to see this)
26 - The Ronettes Sleigh Ride
28 - Gene Autry Here Comes Santa Claus (Down Santa Claus Lane)
29 - Jose Feliciano Feliz Navidad (Jsoe hit top 40 last week. His forst hit since "Hi Heel Sneakers" .)
32 - Perry Como (There's No Place Like) Home For The Holidays
34 - Bing Crosby White Christmas (Last hit with this in 1962!)
35 - Perry Como And The Fontane Sisters With Mitchell Ayres And His Orchestra It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
40 - Elvis Presley Blue Christmas (Debuting at #40! Yaaay!!
42 - John & Yoko/The Plastic Ono Band With The Harlem Community Choir Happy Xmas (War Is Over) ** Still climbing chart **
43 - Darlene Love Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
45 - Chuck Berry Run Rudolph Run
49 - Frank Sinatra Jingle Bells * Debut*

There you have it folks. Ho Ho Ho!

Been a while since I've posted anything on the topic.

I learned of this remake of Joni Michell's River by Ellie Goulding.

Originally I thought she was just some modern day autotone pop artist but she's not just limited to that.

She also plays guitar and I think piano also.

Sounds similar to "White Christmas" in the beginning where the person's now living in a warmer climate where they don't get snow.
