A Few Christmas Eve Bonus Tracks on The 2012 XMAS Countdown - Santa Is Doing His Thing Tonight

Here Comes Santa Claus Right Down Your Street
Chris Isaak was probably born about thirty years too late. With his pompadour, sequined suits and rockabilly voice right out of 1956 he would have fit right in with Elvis, Jerry Lee and The Big Bopper. However, he has managed to continue to make relevant music that is linked to that ground breaking decade while being thoroughly modern. On today's first Christmas Eve Bonus Track he delivers a tune that sheds new light on the big man in the red suit.

Christmas Eve Bonus Track No. 1 on The 2012 XMAS Countdown - Hey Santa! by Chris Isaak.

...and another yule tune that laments the challenge for us all on this day before the big day - Christmas Eve Bonus Track No. 2 - You Gottta Be Good by Chris Isaak.
And as only a true jazz man can do - A live, funky jazz take on a  song about every kid's dream- Christmas Eve Bonus Track No. 3 - It Must Have Been Ol' Santa Claus by Harry Connick, Jr. and His Band.
And finally, something for the poetically challenged who just need something weird - the one and only 60's troubadour reading the greatest Christmas poem of all time - Christmas Eve Bonus Track No. 4  - 'Twas The Night Before Christmas by Bob Dylan.
The Big Fat Man Is Coming To Town - Merry Christmas
