Christmas Favorites 5 : Blue Christmas

11 Dec

Blue Christmas

Many people believe Blue Chrismas was first done by Elvis, but it was written by Billy Hayes and Jay W. Johnson and first recorded in 1948 by the great Country Crooner Doye O’Dell. (who nobody remembers anymore). There have been many renditions since including Elvis‘.

Somebody forgot to check his gun at the door.

Brenda Lee is another artist who did many great versions of Christmas Carols.
Her phrasing was always brilliant.

This ain’t bad at all …

Okay, Okay here’s Elvis:

Yeah … short and sweet.
