Christmas In July-Part 31-The End

Congratulations! You've made it to the end of another wonderful Christmas in July! Download these three final tracks, and you'll have yourself a wonderful collection of 112 songs that can help you get in the holiday spirit all year long.

Track one: Happy New Year, Happy New Year from Charlie Weaver. This appeared on the same LP as the track from the other day, Charlie Weaver Sings For His People (Columbia CL 1345), and apparently on a single with the same track. Still not very funny.

Track two: Perhaps it was inevitable. What did you think I was going to end the faux holiday season with? Yep, it's Auld Lang Syne as performed by Mrs. Miller from It's Party Time! (Capitol Canada T6094, 1964). You know you wanna listen to this.

Track three: A second, and much better, version of Auld Lang Syne by The Crew-Cuts from The Crew-Cuts Sing (RCA Victor LPM-2037, 1959). What a fitting way to end the month, with a track from the glory days of the RCA label. There's even a tag line on the front of this LP, "Song Fest". I wish the scanner worked.

There you have it. 112 tracks. The most repeated song? Baby, It's Cold Outside showed up 7 times. The most popular artist? Henry Mancini with 5 tracks. The absolute best track? That's for you to decide. I hope you enjoyed the songs. I know I enjoyed tracking them all down. My original goal was to share two or three a day, but it sort of snowballed out of control. Stay tuned though. Christmas is coming, and I've got plenty of surprises in store. There might even be more this week...
