Rocking Around The Christmas Tree on 106.1 The Sound
The writer of this Sound Christmas Classic also wrote Holly Jolly Christmas and Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. Brenda Lee was just 13 years old when she sang the original. This song has been used to sell Dodge cars and featured in Home Alone when Kevin stages a fake Christmas party to fool his perpetrators. It took two years before it finally caught on as a Christmas staple. Thanks to streaming, it finally reached The Billboard Hot 100 and Top 10 just last year. Toby Keith, Miley Cyrus and Alabama all have their own versions.
Brenda Lee’s Rocking Around The Christmas Tree is part of the Christmas Sound on 106.1 The Sound.
