I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

December 5, 2006

I’ve heard this song about a thousand times and this last time, on XM 104, I finally *got* it. Paul Anka’s version is virtually unlistenable, but his awkward phrasing flipped a switch in my head. I always pictured “Daddy” fast asleep during this incident — and man, would he have been pissed.

Some other Christmas music musings:

  • Johnny Mathis can sing
  • Ditto for Nat King Cole
  • Karen Carpenter could sing the hell out of a Christmas song
  • Willie Nelson — two thumbs up
