Bear with the brief lead-in on this vid - it's so worth it.

Just a little data about the Elvis/Martina duo - it was digitally put together around 2008, I think. But more apropos for this Forum is that Elvis performed this song for the first time on his 1968 television special, which was called (Singer Presents) 'Elvis' (it was sponsored by Singer sewing machines). Recorded in June, the special aired on December 3 and helped revitalize his career. His performance of "Blue Christmas" is the only video footage that exists of Elvis singing a Christmas song. Before he begins the song, Elvis states: "I'd like to do my favorite Christmas song of the ones I've recorded…" You just can't hear a voice like his any more!!! :icon_bump:

Wasn't a fan of Elvis but video is of him at his best before he was "The King" and he looked so cute too.
