22 December: The Four Imperials: Santa's Got A Coupe De Ville

Published December 22, 2021

The other day I took delivery of no less than seven Christmas compilation CDs, so it seems the Advent Calendar may live on for a further few years. I found today's selection on one of the discs, and it immediately became a favourite. The Four Imperials were a vocal group from Highland Park, Michigan, who only released a handful of singles, none of which seems to have charted nationally. 'Santa's Got A Coupe De Ville', released in 1962, gets off to a shaky start, but then it shifts into full gear with delightful results.

Listen to 'Santa's Got A Coupe De Ville' here.

Or listen on Spotify, where I've created a playlist for this year's Advent Calendar.

The Spotify playlist for all the previous Advent Calendars is here. Note: The playlist is incomplete, as some of my calendar selections are just too obscure for Spotify.









Christmas is all about cars for The Four Imperials.
