MTM Who dun 'em?--Xmas classics (47) RE: Who dun 'em?--Xmas classics 29 Nov 99


Bing Crosby's Christmas recordings with the Andrews Sisters, which include Mele Kalikimaka (Allan C's Christmas song about Hawaii?) and a great swing version of Jingle Bells have always satisfied my longing for an old-fashioned Christmas. I much prefer the Drifter's version of White Christmas to Bing's, however, and Bing and Bowie's Little Drummer Boy to anyone's. The best "Sleigh Ride" is likely the Ronette's. "Ella Fitzgerald's Christmas" has fantastic arrangements of "Angels we have heard on high" and "We Three Kings". Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful Christmas" is pretty hot, too. I'd say the best Winter Wonderland is Aretha Franklin's. Robert Shaw chorale on "Carol of the Bells", Johnny Mathis on "Silver Bells".
