The YouTube Link:
Where you heard it first: My mother probably played it for me at some point when I was little. The advent of YouTube however brought me the magical video above which includes the cheesy 70's Christmas special banter.
Why it’s been stuck in your head: This is one of my holiday favorites. The combination of these two artists should be completely bonkers, but it works. I especially enjoy the stories of how the duet came to be.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: It's one of the relatively newer holiday classics that should be found in every holiday playlist ever.
