It's now officially Christmas Week, and what better way to spread yuletide holly and joy than with a holiday edition of the Champagne Five!
This edition is my personal top five Christmas themed songs never sung on the Welk show, but I would have loved to heard members of the Musical Family cover.
So grab yourself some egg nog, sit under that mistletoe with that special someone and imagine these classics sung by the following....
1. MERRY CHRISTMAS DARLING (The Carpenters) - Tanya Falan
2. SHAKE HANDS WITH SANTA CLAUS (Louis Prima) - Rocky Rockwell
3. HARD CANDY CHRISTMAS (Dolly Parton) - The Aldridge Sisters and the Otwell Twins
4. CHRISTMAS ISLAND (The Andrews Sisters) - Sandi Griffiths, Gail Farrell and Mary Lou Metzger
5. MERRY CHRISTMAS, I DON'T WANNA FIGHT TONIGHT (The Ramones) - Kathy Lennon and Steve Smith
Ah yes, that would be music to my ears.....
