Christmas Dreaming (A Little Early This Year) Christmas Song

Christmas Dreaming (A Little Early This Year)

Year: 1947

Written By: Irving Gordon, Lester Lee

Frank Sinatra recorded this track in 1947, a year before his first Christmas album 'Christmas Songs' arrived. It is undeniably traditional fare and is backed by Axel Stordahl's lush orchestral arrangements which makes it feel like you're tucked up beside the hearth as the snow buckets down outside. Sinatra's voice sounds impeccable, displaying a range to give his vocals a hypnotic storytelling dynamic. While 'Christmas Dreaming (A Little Early This Year' did not appear on the aforementioned 'Christmas Songs' it was included on Sinatra's 1957 'Christmas Dreaming' release.

Fast forward to 1993 and Harry Connick Jr. did a superb job on giving 'Christmas Dreaming' an undeniable swing. His vocals do sound eerily like Sinatra but the production and extras like the olde-time backing singers and brass interludes add up to a really enjoyable rendition.

 

Christmas Dreaming (A Little Early This Year) Lyrics

I'm doing my christmas dreaming
A little early this year
No sign of snow around
And yet I go around
Hearing jingle bells ringing in my ear

Your promise must be the reason
The happy season is here
So I'm doing my Christmas dreaming
A little early this year

So I'm doing my Christmas dreaming
A little early this year
