Only one can beat out Bruce…Gets you in the Holiday mood like no other…The Annual Letterman kickoff to Christmas….Rock and Roll Hall of famer Darlene Love singing her Christmas Classic….

Go to you tube and listen to them all from this Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Legend...

You realize how good Darlene Love is when you see that even Mariah Carey cannot top the original

And here is a Bruce Springsteen Version:

2) Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Bruce/Clarence - there are better quaility versions but check out this rare footage of the first time they ever performed it at the Capital Theater in Passaic NJ on Sept 20th 1978: (Damn they took it down - well here is another:)
