Elvis did it rock-n-roll style.

I really liked his energy during his version.

Of course everything he did in 57 was GREAT!

My second-favorite isn't listed: Otis Redding's. I know Elvis went from the Drifter's arrangement, but it has a different feel to it, altogether. I can almost see him smiling that grin of his!

It won't be long, you know! :smt111

Elvis was a consummate ballad singer and could have OWNED White Christmas if he had wanted to.

He should have gone head-to-head with Bing and at least given him a run for his money.

The arrangement was fine for the Drifters and Elvis' version is OK. The fact that I'll never hear Elvis sing a straight, heart-felt version of White Christmas makes me sad.

Elvis! Bing is a very close second.
