Popularized in the middle of the 20th century, now one of the best-known holiday songs of all time, Blue Christmas was written by Billy Hayes and Jay Johnson.
The melancholic song was performed by various artists, including The Platters, Johnny Cash, The Beach Boys, Celine Dion, Ringo Starr, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Bublé and Rod Stewart.
Elvis Presley’s original Blue Christmas is a rock’n roll version released in 1957. In 2008, American country music singer Martina McBride inserted her voice onto this recording to create a duet version.
‘I’ll have a Blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me
And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue Christmas
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white,
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue blue Christmas’
