Buttkickin’ Holiday Songs: “Jingle Bell Rock” — Hall & Oates (1983)

jingle bell rock hall oatesThere are entirely too many versions of Jingle Bell Rock out there, but this one is my all-time favorite. I bar no holds when I proudly proclaim my total enjoyment of all things Hall & Oates — Abandoned Luncheonette is one of those great 70s albums that doesn’t get enough acknowledgment — and the bouncy swing they bring to this holiday standard is quite infectious. Plus I freakin’ love this video. You haven’t seen this much shameless mugging since that time you stumbled drunkenly through Overtown after a Miami Heat loss. And G. E. Smith as Granny? Priceless.
