Rock and roll hall of famer Jon Bon Jovi is giving fans a holiday treat ahead of time, with three holiday songs released through A Jon Bon Jovi Christmas. Bon Jovi has dropped a new collection of holiday music, covering seasonal songs from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Elvis Presley, and The Pogues. In addition to his long list of rock hits and sold-out concerts, Bon Jovi added some more holiday songs to his repertoire after his Star Wars Christmas album.
Producer Meco Menard hired Bon Jovi to perform the lead vocals on the Star Wars Christmas song. After Jons cousin and producer Meco Menard had a bit of success with the release of the disco version of the Star Wars theme song, they decided to make a Star Wars Christmas album. Originally written in 1960, Jon Bon Jovi covered the 1971 version on 1992s Very Special Christmas 2, which was accompanied by a music video featuring supermodel Cindy Crawford.
Bob Seger cut his version for the 1987 charity album A Very Special Christmas, a theme album featuring stars like Sting, Bryan Adams, and Bon Jovi, and was released to raise money for the Special Olympics. Now, I am sure you are eager to hear more of the early Bon Jovis Christmas record, which was also his first record of any sort. Of course, the first Christmas song I come up with when thinking of Christmas songs from New Jersey, has to be Bruce and Clarence belting out Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
Like Springsteens Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, this song from Pentatonix is yet another in a long line of lunchpail rockers donning the hard hats and beating the time clock in a Christmas rock factory tradition. Considering that this is the only original track on the Christmas-laden second album from Pentatonix, it gets a nod here. A cover of a 1968 recording by Clarence Carter, this song from Pentatonix is also firmly in the “Horny For Christmas” canon.
Michael Buble – I will Be Home For Christmas Bing Crosby originally recorded this ballad in 1943, originally written as a tribute to soldiers abroad, yearning to return home at Christmastime during wartime. Eagles/Jon Bon Jovi – Please Come Home for Christmas Originally written by Charles Brown, then covered by Jon Bon Jovi, it is an underrated moment in the Eagles back catalog. Jon Bon Jovi released covers of three treasured Yuletide songs, called A Jon Bon Jovi Christmas, in time for the 2020 holiday season.

It might not be the traditional Christmas song, but it fulfills a need in people who have a bit of an introspective Christmas melancholy. It is a wintery love song, which is associated with Christmas, even though it is never mentioned in the lyrics. Jingle Bell Rock rapidly became considered a Christmas classic, although the holiday is never mentioned explicitly in the song.
It features versions of Christmas classics by German soldiers as well as British soldiers, with the exception of the title track, a new original Christmas song. Over the years, Jingle Bell Rock gained mass popularity after appearing in popular films like Jingle All The Way, Lethal Weapon, and Mean Girls. It was not intended as a Christmas song, although characteristic jingle bells are featured throughout the standard, along with the talk about Christmas. The title may have you believing that this song is not a Christmas song, but it is actually classic blues done with a bit of jazzy Christmas swing, and it is performed by The First Lady Of Songs.
The song has since become a Christmas standard, with versions recorded by Frank Sinatra, Jack Jones, and Connie Frances, as well as Glen Campbell, whose wailing rendition of I am Going Home for Christmas appeared on That Christmas Feeling, 1968. The song was also featured on Frank Sinatras first Christmas full-length, A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra, and has since become a festive staple, thanks to covers by artists including Jack Jones and Charlie Byrd. Courtesy RCA Blue Christmas is known best as a country Christmas song, with an version recorded by Ernest Tubbs in 1948, until Elvis Presley made it a rock and roll classic with his 1957 recording. The Christmas Cover Trilogy concludes with the cover version Fairytale Of New York, the Pogues classic Christmas melody.
