09 December: Dickie Valentine: Christmas Alphabet

Published December 09, 2014

Time for something smooth from the late Dickie Valentine, who died in 1971.

This was number one for three weeks in the UK in 1955, and, apparently, it was the first time a Christmas song topped the charts. I don't know to what extent it's still remembered today, but I heard it on some Christmas compilation or other and was instantly attracted to its carefree tone (I guess I need a bit more carefree in my life). Hopefully, you'll like it too.
