Best track on "Elvis´christmas album" LP 1957

Mon Jan 29, 2007 2:50 pm

In spite of the time of the year, we move on with Elvis´first and probably most famous christmas album of the ones he recorded. This time, I remove two of the religious songs, "I believe" and "It is no secret". Mostly because they´re not that much christmas. I also prefer the other two gospels songs.

But my absolute favourite on this record is "Santa Claus is back in town", that´s kicking ass in an unbelievable way :D ,so no problems for me this time!

By the way, aren´t the background singing in Blue Christmas totally crazy? :shock:

Vote on!

Has to be Blue Christmas.

While he didn't originate the song his version made it so popular that it has been covered by a multitude of artists.

A true Elvis classic

It's a split between both "Blue Christmas" and "Santa Claus is Back in Town".

I like the backing vocals on "Blue Christmas". They are a stroke of genius in that they bring lightness to a record that would otherwise be almost too bleak to bear.

Great choices guys, I went with I'll Be Home For Christmas!

Holy sh*t!

I missed "Take my hand. precious Lord" as alternative number ten. Must have done something wrong when I did this poll :evil: It´s just 9 alternatives!

I´m sorry about this!

My fave has always been "Here Comes Santa Claus".

The truth is, that I don´t own this LP. I was born in 1968, so I grew up with the international release from 1970, which have "If every day was like christmas" and "Mama liked the roses", instead of "It is no secret" and "I believe". So that´s MY "Elvis christmas album". Nice christmas feeling, something that´s sort of missing on the 1971 christmas album.

This is the first time where we clearly have a big favourite song on an album. Well, the voting ain´t over yet so still things can change.

My vote goes to "Santa Claus Is Back in Town". Even my Elvis hating friends love that song, and that says a lot. Friends of mine impartial to Elvis also love that song. It is rivalled only by "Merry Christmas Baby" (in terms of Christmas songs).

I prefer his CS rendition of "Blue Christmas" in 68 to the studio master.

It HAS to be "Santa Claus Is Back In Town"!

Listen to how damn SEXUAL that thing is. It's an amazing recording. It's just charged with energy at every level.

Sure, it´s a great rocker, and I really like it...But IMO it´s not a "Christmas" song...If you know what I mean.

Blue Christmas gets my vote..........
