Here’s another classic 1950’s Christmas card image I found on Pinterest. So charming & festive!!!

Today’s song is by an American band formed in 1967 that went on to become one of the best selling groups of all time. Known for their ballads, their rock songs and everything in between, their music is a combination of jazz, R&B, pop and classical. All this and a horn section, too. What more could a band need? Oh, right, great songwriters and incredibly talented vocalists. Check and check.
They released a Christmas album in 1998 (produced by E Street Band member Roy Bittan) which was reissued in 2003 with six extra songs including this classic. For some people, there will never be a better version than Gene Autry’s or the one from the TV special as sung by Burl Ives,. But I think today’s pick is a really good one. Let’s call it the grown-up version of a childhood favorite.
Chicago: “Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer” (2003, written by Johnny Marks in 1939).
