Charles Brown: ‘Merry Christmas’. Merry Christmas’ is probably the only song that has been covered by both Bruce Springsteen and Mae West, but the definitive version was released in 1947 by singer and pianist Charles Brown as part of Johnny Moore’s vocal group Three Blazers. I wrote the title ‘Merry Christmas Baby’, and I wrote the words, how I was going to sing it, and I mapped it out, played the piano, and I presented it to Johnny Moore. We didn’t know it was going to be a great big hit, but I thought it was unique. Albert King: ‘Christmas (Comes But Once A Year)’. Christmas Tears’ was blues legend Freddie King’s Christmas anthem, written and recorded in 1961. Grammy-winning Eric Clapton released his own Christmas album in 2018, after figuring out, as he put it, how to play the blues lines in between the vocals of holiday songs. His solo on ‘Christmas Tears’ is eye-wateringly good.
