Last week, I linked up with comedic sketch "I Wish it was Christmas Today." But this week, I'm giving you an actual song: "Run Run Rudolph." And am I ever!
I just never get tired of it, and love it in many of it's editions! I picked each of these versions because I could tell that each different artist definitely added their own signature sound to it. I know it's a lot to sort through and I don't expect anyone to sit through ALL of them (well, unless you really want to. I certainly won't object!), but I'm hoping you'll scroll through, see what I have, and maybe a version you haven't heard yet will intrigue you enough to want to click play and listen!
First up is a rousing country version by Luke Bryan:
But my favorite country version is by Dwight Yoakam:
Did you know that Cee Lo's done this, too? Well, he has. And I LOVE IT!
And what about Keith Richards? Why yes. Yes, he has.
But I bet you didn't know 80s glam rockers Hanoi Rocks had too, did ya? Yep. And they even busted out the harmonica. Not my favorite by a long shot, but this video is something else:
So did 80s glam rockers Faster Pussycat (I really like it, too!):
Now, this one by Reverend Horton Heat is probably *almost* my favorite, just because I love this band so much! Here they are performing it live:
And here's a kick-ass version from the album We Wish You A Metal Christmas by Lemmy Kilmister, Billy Gibbons and Dave Grohl:
But my very favorite, hands-down, is the first one I ever heard, and probably the most well-known and liked version, which is from the AMAZING Chuck Berry:
But you saw that one coming, now didn't you?
Happy Music Monday to you! So tell me: What's your favorite version of "Run Run Rudolph?"
