Well, here we are Nomads. One day left - waiting on the world's ultimate Nomad to come down the chimney. Today's Countdown is dedicated to the premise that Santa is coming to your house. And don't tell anyone if you don't believe. I remember exactly where I was when I learned the truth! But on this day, I revert back to when I did believe. It just makes me feel better.

We start with one of a kind . Springsteen & The E Street Band absolutely kill this Christmas Classic, first recorded in 1934 by Tom Stacks. I had the pleasure of seeing the Boss do this in my home town of Tallahassee on his Born In The USA Tour. If you don't have Springsteen on your Music Bucket List then you don't know what you are missing.

Next up is the dapper dance man, Fred Astaire, giving his take on this classic. The video is excellent as well. For those that remember Fred Astaire, no one captured the essence of pure elegance like him - one of the greatest dancers in cinema history. And this one is for the kids.

The Band Perry broke into the country music scene with a bang in 2010. Lead singer Kimberly Perry can just flat out sing. She and her siblings give a great take on this Christmas favorite.

Is there a pop singer that is more tedious than Justin Bieber? However, the boy's got talent. Time will tell if he burns out like so many others before or takes his talent to the next level. This video is a very innovative take on today's tune.

Finally, Michael Buble' shows what new school/old school is like with Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town. With the big band in tow, he shows why he is a hit everywhere he goes. Man, this kind of music, that has been around since the forties, just gets in you and never leaves!

No Bah Humbugs Not Allowed Tonight!
