Christmas 2017 singles, Part 2



More Christmas singles from my collection--this playlist is a mix of 45s and 78s.  Notes: Martin Walker ("I Just Wrote to Santa") is a she, "Little Drummer Boy" (1938) is a completely different tune than the famous holiday number, and the funny "Mistletoe Song" owes more than a little to Spike Jones.  Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve to you as well, Lee! Somewhere out over the Pacific Ocean, Santa Claus is starting his rounds...

I feel like Scotty on "Star Trek" - "if we keep up this speed, we'll blow up any minute now!"
