Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Bruce Springsteen "Santa Claus is Coming to Town":



Bruce didn't invent this arrangement, Phil Spector did. Listen to the Crystals' version of "Santa Claus is coming to town" on the ubiquitous Phil Spector Christmas Gift to You / Phil Spector's Christmas Album / god knows what other titles they've come up with for the same collection.

Mind you, the E Street Band definitely put their own stamp on the arrangement, and it's probably where most people have heard it. But give Spector his due.


I guess you're right. Although I still think people are covering "Bruces Version" and not really going all the was back to the Phil Spector version. But that phrasing and melody are there on the Crystals version....
