Christmas Music Playlists with Neil Sedaka Songs

Looks At The Calendar Girls And Boys, It's Christmas!

Brooklyn born Neil Sedaka is one of the most famous names in pop music with millions of record sales to his name. With a career that has spanned many decades (he started out in the late fifties) it might seem a little odd that it took him until 2008 to record his first full length Christmas album. And before you ask his biggest hit 'Oh! Carol' had nothing at all to do with faith based songs of the Christmas variety, it was about fellow singer and old girlfriend Carol King.

Neil Sedaka's association with the season did not quite start there however as his 1957 single 'Laura Lee' boasted a b-side written by himself called 'Snowtime'. With lyrics like 'The snow is falling, the world`s dressed in white tonight, and I remember another cold December, when I held you tight' 'Snowtime' had the potential to become another 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' but sadly it has been largely forgotten, perhaps in part because it sounds like music from a distant age. With Sedaka himself providing the backing vocals this is how pop sounded before the Fab Four grabbed it by the scruff of the neck in the sixties.

Neil’s Christmas debut proper called 'The Miracle of Christmas' came out in 2008, firstly as a 10-track album of festive standards before being followed by an expanded deluxe edition the following year which included an extra disc of 12 Sedaka originals for the season. Seems like a surprising way to do things, that the covers would proceed the originals by a year but all the same whether Neil is covering other people's work or just singing his own compositions the results are universally strong. The 10 festive covers don't reveal any true surprises with the usual mix of religious and secular tunes like 'Silent Night', 'White Christmas' and 'O Come All Ye Faithful' given the Sedaka treatment, albeit in a decidedly sparse rendering.

The disc containing Neil's freshly penned dozen odes to the season are far more revealing and in keeping with his penchant for rich pop delights. Whether it is the genuinely touching and rather hushed 'Baby’s First Christmas Lullaby' or the fun time a go-go 'Razzle Dazzle Christmas' this is an excellent collection. The years have been kind to Sedaka and he does little to stray far from his tried and trusted formula on so many of his new Christmas songs. That they don’t sound tired is a tribute to his staying power on closing track ‘A Christmas Melody’ he has crafted a new anthem for his legion of fans.
