Christmas Music Trivia: Bobby Helms – Jingle Bell Rock [VIDEO]
I mentioned earlier today that I was kinda shocked that Band-Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ beat out John Lennon’s ‘Merry Xmas (War Is Over).’ In my head I guess I thought, ‘age has its privilege,’ but that’s what I love about letting you cast your vote and be heard.
Now it’s Band-Aid up against Bobby Helms‘ ‘Jingle Bell Rock.’
Here’s a little bit of trivia about the Bobby Helms’ version.
Trivia: Bobby Helms recorded and released ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ on at least FOUR different occasions. (1957, 1965, 1967 and his last time in 1983)
Here’s my second favorite version of the song from Daryl Hall & John Oates in 1984.
