Elvis Christmas, Give the Gift of a Classic
There is a reason that so many people love Elvis Presley. Called "The King of Rock & Roll", Presley changed history with his new sound that combined county music with a smooth rhythm and blues. His provocative, almost sexual performances, combined with an energy like no one had ever seen, had the crowds crying like a hound dog. As his music continued to rock the charts, the world fell in love with him. One of my favorite of his qualities was his ability to tone down that energy and draw the audience in with numbers like "Love me Tender" and many of the songs on this Christmas album, like "Blue Christmas" and "I'll Be Home For Christmas".
Whether you are just looking to put yourself in the Christmas spirit or you are looking for the perfect stocking stuffer for your Nana or your Mom, there is nothing like an Elvis Christmas. His smooth vocals will take you back to a day when things were more simple, when there was peace in the valley. This album may not rock the jailhouse but it will sure get you shaking your silver bells and perhaps your hips if you close your eyes and let yourself have a Merry Christmas baby.
I grew up going to a very small church and every Christmas our choir would sing the classics, such as Silent Night, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, and The First Noel. We had a lot of beautiful voices in our choir and people would come from miles around to hear our little church sing, but Elvis, it won't seem like Christmas with you!
Another great classic that will never get old!
