Listen to Here Comes Santa Claus (Stop Video First)
Elvis Presley - Here Comes Santa Claus (original) HQ 1957 from the Elvis Presley Christmas Album.
Here Comes Santa Claus is just one of the great songs from this Elvis Presley Christmas album.
Gene Autry got the idea for the song after riding his horse in the 1946 Santa Claus Lane Parade
in Los Angeles (Now the Hollywood Christmas Parade) during which crowds of spectators chanted,
"Here comes Santa Claus". This inspired him to write a song that Haldeman set to music. A demo
recording was made by singer/guitarist Johnny Bond, whose recording made use of ice cubes to mimic
the sound of the jingling sleigh-bells. This inspired the use of real sleigh-bells in Autry's own
recording of the song.
