Throwback Thursday: Xmas Edition, Part 2

- Posted // 2013-12-12 -

Happy Thursday, music fans! This week's Throwback Thursday blog is part two of my Christmas-music blog series, and focuses on my favorite Christmas songs from various TV specials and movies. Enjoy!

Burl Ives, "Silver and Gold," from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

I watched this movie, without fail, every single Christmas when I was a kid, and I absolutely love Burl Ives' voice. My favorite part is when the squirrel chomps down on the giant gold nugget and gets all mad.

Albert Hague, "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," from How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

An absolute classic. He's such a jerk to that poor dog.

Vince Guaraldi, "Christmas Time Is Here," from A Charlie Brown Christmas

Amazing piano.

Jack Nelson and Steve Rollins, "Frosty the Snowman," from Frosty the Snowman

I miss my old taped version of this movie that included all the '90s commercials. (This is the actual scene from the movie; music starts at 5:00, again at 7:20.)

Paul Williams, "There's Only One More Sleep Till Christmas," from A Muppet Christmas Carol

Love the montage of the rats closing up the shop, even though Kermit should probably be helping them out more instead of walking around and singing. And I feel sorry for the poor little rabbit shivering in the garbage.


This awesome guest submission was sent to me by Rachel: Frank Sinatra's "The Christmas Waltz." I can't believe I've never heard this song till now.


Do you have a song that takes you back? E-mail kstone@cityweekly.net to have it featured on next week's Throwback Thursday blog.
