18 December: The Supremes: Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Published December 18, 2013

Tuesday and Wednesday are girl group days in the Advent Calendar. Yesterday we had The Puppini Sisters and today we fly back 48 years to 1965, when The Supremes recorded this Motown take on 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town'.

The song was first heard in 1934 and has, of course, been recorded innumerable times since then. The Supremes' version comes from their Merry Christmas album, and I think it's kinda' groovy.

Listen here.
