Hit "full screen" and pump up the volume for this one!
Thanks to Kay G at Georgia Girl With An English Heart for introducing me to this great cover of Elvis Presley's "Santa Claus Is Back In Town!"
This version comes from the 2018 film The Christmas Chronicles and is performed by lead singer Kurt Russell (Santa) backed up by the band Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul. If you're a fan of Bruce Springsteen's The E Street Band or of The Sopranos TV series, you'll recognize Steven Van Zandt playing guitar behind Santa!
Well Kurt Russell did play Elvis in a movie so I'll allow him to cover the King's version.
Happy Christmas Debra!
Thanks very much for giving the details of the great musicians too! If only I had more time to do my blog posts right! And you must turn up the volume, I agree! Merry Christmas!
Kurt Russell!!! My lands! He makes a good Santa. I haven't seen him doing anything in years!
Merry Christmas to you and Rare One!
Well, this one was a surprise to me. Kurt Russell ... and Steven Van Zandt! They meant business. I loved it. Moose did not. He looked at the screen and left the room. Kurt Russell makes a hot Papa Noel.
Russell makes a rather handsome looking Santa.
Apparently Kurt Russell can do anything! Rock on, jolly old elf!
Ooh, Santa! This is HAWT!
Love ya, Debra.
Merry, Merry to you and yours.
I recently heard a history of Santa Claus. The guy has gone through a lot of changes since he was the bishop of Turkey!
I guess every generation gets the Santa it wants -and deserves.
What a great vibe! Love the vibe! Greeting from a desert in down under!
I still haven't watched The Christmas chronicles. I must do.
Hope you and the Rare One have a wonderful day tomorrow.
I’d leave cookies out for that Santa lol, excellent! ❤️
I remember seeing this last year. Goldie Hawn is Mrs. Claus They make a sexy couple. I wouldn't mind being a bad girl for Santa.
I love those movies.
Have a rocking great Christmas
Kurt may have missed his calling. He can belt one out!
Now THAT'S what I like in a Xmas carol and video, baby! Love, love, LOVE the brass section swinging like the big band era. And who knew Kurt Russell could sing?!
Merry Christmas, Debra!
and van zandt's wife! merry xmas!!!
This was really good, I had to get out my list of Christmas movies to see if I need to get The Christmas Chronicles, but I have it already, just haven't watched it yet.
@ jaz@octoberfarm -- Thanks, Joyce, I did not know that!
Thanks to Kay, I watched The Christmas Chronicles last night. Kurt Russell is a great Santa. I was surprised and pleased to see Little Steven rocking in the jail cell sequence. Merry Christmas, dear Debra.
I remember the song from the movie
This is fabulous! I remember it from the movie.
I loved this movie so much and loved this...just loved it..and knew all the musicians ..Kurt was great in this..and the cameo of Goldie was very cool.
I love this! I think Kurt Russell might be the 'hottest' Santa ever!
We both enjoyed his movies. Funny video
What a rocking, fun video, Debra! I enjoyed this so much. Trust Kay to come up with this!
