Advent Calendar Day 15: The Crystals ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’

This is the second track on the Advent Calendar from Phil Spector’s A Christmas Gift For You and it showcases Spector’s Wall of Sound production. The introduction is pretty weird and most radio edits skip it for good reason. However it does create a tranquil Christmassy atmosphere before the song bursts into its energetic chorus. This song is great for decorating the tree or the early stages of Christmas Day before your family starts arguing and you’re left in the corner eating mince pies and playing with your toys. Oh is it just my family who does that?
