Day 25 - 'White Christmas' - The Drifters

Well, here we are again - and is it me or did that fly by?

Regulars will know that I like to get at least one version of this song on every calendar and this is one of the very best. Featuring the voice of the wonderful Clyde McPhatter, this 1954 version was resurrected a few years back when it became part of a worldwide email phenomenon where it was delivered to millions of in-boxes accompanied with a cartoon. That's available if you want it, and also a live version with the original line-up minus the sadly deceased McPhatter but it's the sound rather than the visual you need to hear so I'll settle for this:

Merry Christmas everyone!
