Christmas Countdown 2007: More Martian Hijinx and Bobby Helms, "Captain Santa Claus", DECCA label # 9-30513 (1957)
For today's installment of the 2007 Christmas Countdown, here's another cover of Milton DeLugg's "Hooray For Santa Claus", which was the theme to Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964), this time by one of my favorite punk bands, Sloppy Seconds. This is taken from their 2004 EP, Lonely Christmas. And, for the "B-Side" of this installment is one of my favorite Christmas themed B-Sides, "(Here Comes) Captain Santa Claus and His Reindeer Space Patrol", from the original 1957 Decca .45 release of "Jingle Bell Rock" by Bobby Helms.
