Ray Stevens Christmas Songs & Music

When the king of the novelty song, Ray Stevens released his first Christmas album back in 1997, fans were sure to get something that put a smile on their face. The resulting album Through a Different Window and the following yuletide collection Christmas are perfect for lightening the mood next time your December gets a little too stressful.

Through a Different Window

1997: Through a Different Window

There’s not a silent night in sight in Stevens’ riotous holiday collection. The eleven novelty tracks on the album drip with satire, poking fun at office parties (The Annual Office Christmas Party), political correctness (Guilt for Christmas) and the much-loved family Christmas letter (Xerox Xmas Letter). Even traditional holiday songs don’t escape Steven’s sharp wit; The Little Drummer Boy Next Door and I Won’t Be Home for Christmas are memorable additions to the album. Truckloads of good humour and a great country voice make Through a Different Window ideal if you’re in need of a laugh this Christmas.

2009: Ray Stevens Christmas

Ray Stevens takes a different approach in his second holiday album. This time, he is much more serious, turning in great performances of nine Christmas classics. In true Ray Stevens style though, there is more than a touch of humour in these arrangements. Jingle Bells features an interjection from the horse rider, whilst White Christmas finishes with a spoof of The Drifters’ cover of the classic. Of course Stevens couldn’t resist throwing one novelty song into the mix; Deck the Halls With Teardrops, but, as the title suggests, it’s not the most cheery of tracks.
