Old School Fridays: Christmas Songs

At first I was going to try and find some obscure Christmas song done by someone you wouldn't think of doing a Christmas song, but than I realized how much I love this version done by Bruce Springsteen and decided that it was the song to post. This is an early clip, I'm not sure of the year, but it's from an early Bruce. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

This meme was developed by Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine. The rules are simple:

1. Anyone can participate; any music genre
2. Old School is defined as music created before 1999
3. No offensive words allowed, please use edited radio version
4. Post a video of your favorite Old School song to take us back down memory lane
5. Add your name to the meme list so that others can check you out
6. Have fun & don't forget to leave comments for other participants

I haven't heard this song, but apparently I am missing out on a lot great Christmas songs. I'm so stuck on tradition that I listen to the same ole songs every year since I was 5.

I like Bruce, and this is really good. It adds something different to my playlist.

Have Fun This Christmas!

Love Bruce! Love this song!

Merry Christmas!

The year was 1978 and they were performing at the Capitol Theater in New Jersey.

Only Bruce could improve on Burl Ives - though a John Lennon version might have been stupendous too!

Oh, dumb me, I said Burl Ives - I meant Fred Astaire. Jeez, I had a senior moment!

Travis said...

Bruce rocks, even on a holiday song.

Thanks Diva, Sounds like you know your Bruce.

Regina said...

I love this song AND it just went off the radio!!

It's that raspy delivery he has on every song. The voice is unmistakable.

Happy OSF.

Bruce's version always puts a smile on my face, I hadn't seen this video before - thanks! I'm still hoping he'll get added to JF 2nd weekend! It's on my Christmas list! ;o)
