I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Music by Tommie Connor

Originally Performed by Jimmy Boyd

"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" is a Christmas song with music and lyrics by British songwriter Tommie Connor and first recorded by Jimmy Boyd in 1952. The song has since been covered by many artists, with the most famous cover being attributed to The Jackson 5. The original recording by Jimmy Boyd, recorded on July 15, 1952, when he was 13 years old, reached No. 1 on the Billboard pop singles chart in December 1952, and on the Cash Box chart at the beginning of the following year. It later reached Number 3 in the UK Charts when issued there in November 1953. The song was commissioned by Saks Fifth Avenue to promote the store's Christmas card for the year, which featured an original sketch by artist Perry Barlow, who drew for The New Yorker for many decades.

The Four Freshmen : Snowfall

The "new" Four Freshmen bring us a smooth, upbeat, jazzy collection of 13 Christmas standards, lightly accompanied by guitar, acoustic bass, drums and group member Curtis Calderon on trumpet. But "Snowfall" remains a great Christmas album because of the Freshmen's trademark blend of seamless, bright harmonies that simply make us feel good to listen to. Just listen to the 4F nail the flawlessly arranged "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," "Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," the bluenote "My Favorite Things," "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas," the moody title tune, "Let It Snow," "A Child is Born," "Oh, Holy Night" and the requisite "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and notice that you are in fact having one, even though it might only be July. The Freshmen are all about classic romantic tunes, slow dancing, falling in love and white Christmases, so give "Snowfall" to yourself or a loved one and enjoy!

Lennon Sisters : Christmas With The Lennon Sisters : 00  1 CD : 8724

Lennon Sisters : Christmas With The Lennon Sisters

Recorded in 1959 this is the Sister's first Christmas recording and one they have fond memories of. The lovely cover photo of the fresh-faced teens in velvet red dresses is of the age of when "Little Janet" singing "I Saw Mama Kissin Santa Claus" was a highlight of the legendary Lawrence Welk Christmas shows. "Winter Wonderland" was one of the very first songs the girls sang for Welk at a charity event and which led to their later frequent appearances on his show. This reissue is a classic and adds a wonderful touch of nostaligia to the season.

Songlist: Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Little Drummer Boy, Christmas Island, Adeste Fideles, I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, Silent Night, White Christmas, Jingle Bells, Away In A Manger, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Winter Wonderland , O Little Town Of Bethlehem, Joy To The World, I'll Be Home For Christmas

Solstice : Winter Solstice

Veteran all-women septet, and one of our favorite World/Folk groups, we watched Solstice do the Bay Area proud by winning the Regional and placing 3rd in the 2007 National Finals. Urged by their friends and families to release a Holiday CD, the group finally and happily fulfilled this longtime dream, and Becca, Emily, Kim, Krista, Lark, Mari & Sara did it wonderfully! Choosing little-known, difficult classical tunes like Cortland Bender's lovely "Rosa Mystica," Francisco Guerrero's "A Un Nino Llorando Al Hielo" and Thomas Weelkes' "To Shorten Winter's Sadness," from the 15th and 16th centuries; beautifully arranged traditional carols like Bernard de la Monnoye's "Patapan," "Deck the Hall," and Franz Gruber's "Silent Night;" and popular Christmas songs like Vince Guaraldi's "Christmas Time is Here," Tommie Connor's "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" and Alfred Burt's "Caroling, Caroling;" along with the rich traditional Hebrew song "S'Vivon" and other favorites, make "Winter Solstice" a very special 15-cut collection that is sure to brighten your holiday for years to come!

Songlist: Nowell, Nowell, Out of Your Sleep, Deck the Hall, S'Vivon, Rosa Mystica, Corpus Christi Carol, Patapan, Nova, Nova, Ave Fit Ex Eva, Christmas Time is Here, Tyrley, Tyrlow!, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, A Un Nino Llorando Al Hielo, Caroling, Caroling, Jul, Jul, To Shorten Winter's Sadness, Silent Night
