Let’s cut to the chase on this list of crooner Christmas songs and say that yes we all agree that Bing Crosby sits at the top of the tree with the sparkling star that is ‘White Christmas’. No arguments there but what a glorious old time Christmas to be had from the 19 other swinging delights here. One only has to spend a few seconds in the company of Frank Sinatra’s ‘Jingle Bells’ to know that the crooners have always sprinkled their magic on the standards. On plenty of occasions they also created such definitive versions that no one else that followed in their wake could possible improve on them. Like Nat King Cole’s ‘The Christmas Song’ for example, that is still an unadulterated joy over a half a century after it was recorded. This is surely in the top 10 of everyone’s favourite Christmas songs ever. Similarly Dean Martin made ‘Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!‘ with a wink and swagger and from 1965 onwards it was his version that we all returned to time and again.

But there is so much fun to be had beyond the Rat Pack, which Tony Bennett proves on his orchestral rich ‘Winter Wonderland’. The sense of class just oozes from its every brass and vocal part, just like it does on Mel Torme’s rendition of ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ that was memorably used on the original ‘Home Alone’ movie in 1990. Unfairly left behind, which given the strength of his Christmas back catalogue is odd, on Christmas playlists is Johnny Mathis. His classic 1963 festive album ‘The Sounds of Christmas’ featured the heartfelt and swoonsome ‘Christmas Is a Feeling in Your Heart’ which should be enough evidence you'll ever need to kick-start your love affair with this crooner's special way with a Christmas song.
