“Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day.....
......give it to someone special”
Wham's 'Last Christmas' (1984) sung by George Michael rings in our ears even today. It can never quite loose its magnetic appeal or fail to fill our hearts with love. Similarly, Dean Martin's “ Let it snow” (1959) or Darlene Love's “ Baby please come” (1963) conjures up warm feelings on a cold Christmas night. Among the oldies, Elvis Presley's “Blue Christmas”, Bing Crossby's “ White Christmas”, Brenda Lee's “ Rocking around the Christmas trees”, Charles Brown's “ Please come home for Christmas” or Chuck Berry's “Run Rudolph run” top the popularity charts.
Then again, “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus”, “ The little drummer boy”, “ Santa Claus is coming to town”, “ Jingle Bell- Rock”, “ I'll be home for Christmas”, and “ Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer” are some more of the unforgettable and immortal lyrics that will rock any Christmas party.
Christmas melodies of yore and those releasing year after year are a great demand not just among adults but kids as well. Christmas is a time to celebrate and enjoy with great gusto and enthusiasm, music is therefore a must and songs like these end up making not just humans dance to its reverberating tunes but the angels in heaven as well.
