If Yuleplay has thought us anything it is that there is an abundance of Christmas music out there that barely gets a hearing each December. What is even more surprising is that some of the so-called bigger artists have festive material that is more or less forgotten about. In that respect take a wee listen to these classics that could well be new to you. How about jazz icon Ella Fitzgerald and her demure and wonderful ‘The Secret of Christmas’ which is absent from every conceivable Christmas compilation out there which is a great shame due to its adherence to the true meaning of the season and Fitzgerald’s smoking delivery.

Frank Sinatra is certainly one of the heavy hitters each new season and while he is gets plenty of airplay each year his ‘Christmas Memories’ (also known as ‘Christmas Mem'ries’) gets little attention. That may be down to the fact that it was only released as a b-side to the John Denver written a-side ‘A Baby Just Like You’ in 1975. Similarly Nat King Cole’s ‘The Happiest Christmas Tree’ often appears lost in the adulation bestowed upon his admittedly spellbinding ‘The Christmas Song’. With a pep in its step this is a song that should have the kids in raptures as few Christmas songs can match it for its pure unadulterated joie-de-vivre.

The hope is that at least some of these old forgotten classics might be enough to add a little more sparkle to your yuletide experience.
