There’s a Santa That Looks a Lot Like Elvis

December 23, 2014

“There’s a Santa that looks a lot like Elvis,” a Bob Rivers parody of Meredith Willson‘s “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” sung in a Bing Crosby sound-alike voice. Crooner Crosby had a hit with the tune in 1951.

Young people: Elvis Presley was a popular vocalist back in the last century. In his later years he … um, filled out a bit from eating deep-fried peanut butter-jelly-and-bacon sandwiches, and weighed 350 pounds at his death in 1977. Of course, your grandma might not think he’s dead.

Bob Rivers recordings.
