Welcome to the finale of the News Blenders Christmas Musical Weekend. If you’re just tuning in, take a hop over to enjoy Part 1 and Part 2.

I’m going to be the rebel of the bunch and break with tradition and go, well, traditional.

When the idea was suggested let’s do a weekend of Christmas Music, my mind immediately started to walk down memory lane.

In no particular order, this is the music I wanted to share.

Little Drummer Boy

The a cappella group Pentatonix. I really enjoy their version of Little Drummer Boy. 


If you’ve never heard of them, this is the band Cloverton, they’re a group out of Kansas. I’ve been enjoying their version of Hallelujah for a few years now since I discovered them. I hope you do, too.

Rudolf, The Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Because, of course!

1949 HITS ARCHIVE: Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer – Gene Autry
(his original #1 ‘pop’ & C&W hit)

This is the version of Rudolf we would sing.

Rudolph, the red-gun cowboy
Had a very shiny gun
And if you ever saw it
You could even say it glowed
All of the other cowboys 
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph 
Play in any poker games
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say 
Rudolph, with your gun so bright
Won’t you shoot my wife tonight?
Then how the cowboys loved him 
As they shouted out with glee, Yipee! 
Rudolph, the red-gun cowboy 
You’ll go down in history

White Christmas

When I think of the song “White Christmas” I always think of Bing Crosy. It reminds me of my mom. So, this one is for her. Hi, Mom!  😆 

All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth.

We’ve all heard plenty of renditions of this one, from Nat King Cole to Alvin and the Chipmunks, but I was looking for the original 1948 version, written by Don Gardner and sung by Spike Jones & His City Slickers, that is the version I remembered hearing growing up, but then I saw this one. 

This little one is Melissa Lynn, in 1986. The visual was just too fun to pass up.

Jingle Bells, Batman Smells

I remember my son coming home from school, I think he was in the 2nd grade, singing this one. The rule was, if we laughed we couldn’t scold. I laughed. Besides, now that I think about it, I’m pretty sure I’d already taught him Rudolf, The Red-gun Cowboy. It was Karma. My dad was horrified at me for coming home and singing that one.

Hi, son!

12 Days Of Christmas

No Christmas music list of days gone by is complete without 12 Days Of Christmas, Jeff Foxworthy’s Redneck 12 Days Of Christmas that is.

   Merry Christmas, Y’all!!

Question of the Night: What are your favorite Christmas songs?
