Song of The Day: Gayla Peevey - I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

It may be close to 60 years old but Gayla Peevey's 'I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas' is showing no signs of ageing. The only thing that appears to have aged in fact age is the singer herself who was just 10 years old when she made her unusual Christmas wish. This is as novelty as getting 2 front teeth for the big day but back in 1953 Hippo's might just have been the top request of the year. 'I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas' was to appear a few other times by other acts, most notably when the 3 Stooges recorded their version.
