Senor Santa Claus (Jim Reeves)

Given that he is the first thing that pops into most people’s head when they think of Christmas it is not all that surprising that Santa songs are amongst the most popular each December. ‘Santa Claus is Coming To Town’ is perhaps the most well-known tune about the North Pole’s finest gentleman. Written in the mid 1930’s it has had many suitors but not many have given the Christmas standard such a loving rendition as Bruce Springsteen and his E Street band.

The breath of Santa Claus songs means that the red cheeked big man in shown in various character shades, mostly charming but sometimes cheeky like when Andy Williams describes the scene as he steals a kiss from Mommy. Eartha Kitt also took this slightly mischievous route as she tried to entrap Santa in a compromising position or two on her ‘Santa Baby’. Thankfully for lovers of the clean living Santa there are plenty of Santa Christmas songs that show him on the straight and narrow doing what he does best. So Elvis Presley’s ‘Here Comes Santa Claus’, Jim Reeves ‘Senor Santa Claus’ and ‘(It Must've Been Ol') Santa Claus’ by Harry Connick, Jr. prove to be perfect family material for festive parties.

But boys will be boys and Santa Claus songs more often than not have a glint of mischievousness about them. So ‘Zat You, Santa Claus?’ and ‘Back Door Santa’ both hint at a Santa who might have another sideline that distracts him from his primary role each Christmas Eve. All good fun and I’m sure the bearded red-suited gentlemen just chuckles along like the rest of us.
