Sad and Lonely this Holiday Season

Unrequited love is always a great subject when it is written into a song. However, the effects are multiplied when it is written as a Christmas carol and found in the country western genre.

This carol dates back to 1948 and was recorded by the likes of Ernest Tubb and Doyle O’Dell. It spent some time on the charts a number of times over the years.

Even with its CW feel and solid country history, it became a rock and roll hit in 1957 when Elvis got ahold of it.

No matter who else records this gem, no one will bring it the popularity that Elvis gave it.

Now, let’s look at some real Blue Christmas gems and gifts; none of which will leave you sad and blue.
