Bruce Springsteen Christmas Songs & Music
Although The Boss has never taken upon himself to release a
whole Christmas collection, he is certainly not adverse to
spreading a little holiday cheer. Springsteen's yuletide covers
have appeared on charity albums A Very Special Christmas, whilst
his cover of Santa Claus is Comin' to Town remains one of the most
famous renditions of all time.
Santa Claus is Comin' To Town- 1975
Springsteen's cover of this classic song was recorded live at
C.W. Post College in New York. Each Christmas it graces the
airwaves and made it onto Billboard's Recurring Singles charts each
year from 2002-2009. The track appeared on the 1982 children's
album In Harmony 2 and also served as the B-Side to Springsteen's
single My Hometown in 1985.
Merry Christmas Baby- 1987
Springsteen and his E Street Band covered this Johnny Moore
classic for the 1987 charity album A Very Special Christmas. The
album raised funds for the Special Olympics and featured artists
such as Sting and Madonna.
