Christmas Music Video Of the Week


Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby 1957 Christmas Special excerpt
This Christmas Music Video Of the Week is a two-fer - two songs, two singers,  one grat Christmas experience.
On December 20, 1957, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby's Christmas special aired on American television, one of the earliest color broadcasts on U.S. TV.  Sinatra and Crosby mostly sing Yuletide carols and tell stories,and they even have a segment devoted he Christmases of Victorian England.  This four-minute, 24-second  video is just a sample of their awesome talents.
Frank Sinatra takes over in the first part of this video, singing "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," his recording of which was later used to make a trick duet with Cyndi Lauper - her voice was simply overdubbed and edited in to Frank's original record.  The video closes, as the Christmas special did sixty years ago, with Crosby singing the Christmas song most associated with him, Irving Berlin's "White Christmas," with Ol' Blue Eyes' joining him for the last chorus.  Hope you enjoy it.
