While The Boss is better known for his all-American anthems and introspective views of working America, his rendition of “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town” is fun and jovial.
Plus, the dude bringing the “Ho Ho Ho”s is just a kick.
The reason this version is great is because it’s the familiar classic, but still uniquely Springsteen. The rhythm, vocals, and musical flares are all characteristic of his songs, but it’s not his song. It’s that fine line between doing a song your way and making it your own. Springsteen definitely makes it his own, and everyone’s singing along with him.
And it’s a fun way to start off our musical lead-in to Christmas. Enjoy!
