This 1954 single, written by Pat Ballard was recorded by the girl group ‘The Chordettes’. It reached #1 on the Billboard US charts and reached high peaks internationally — and has become a beloved popular classic. It has been re-worked as a holiday favorite under the title ‘Mr. Santa’, but most folks will most fondly associate this tune and its 50′s, pop/Doo-Wop stylings with its original Ballard version. The Chordettes would go on to entertain for years onwards, including their other big hit with ‘Lollipop’ in 1958.
