There is something to be said for classics like this, but I've always been interested in creating a new classic. Last year, I actually hit the top 30 at mp3000.net with this one:

and this year, I may be poised for a repeat with this one, which is really getting some heavy downloads:

The great thing is, I'm an indie artist, so I'm not beholden to any big record companies.

Always loved this song, and you're right, it is a classic. This song and White Christmas define the season....Its just not Christmas until you hear them....Also, its not Christmas until you've seen "Its A Wonderful Life" a million times. I know I'm dating myself, however I am proud to say that I am older. I can actually say that I remember the 1st song made by Brenda Lee. I was a teenager when she hit the charts, in fact ony two years her junior.....Clasic rock n roll is sthe best!!!!!!

I could honestly listen to "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree" alllll year long. It is my favorite Christmas song. I dont mind some of the new Christmas music, but there is nothing like the old stuff. I love the old Rock-N-Roll also, and I am only in my 30's.
