Bob Dylan’s Christmas Polka Party

December 28, 2021

Bob Dylan and friends perform a spirited version of  Hal Moore and Bill Fredricks’ “Must Be Santa” on his Christmas album. The tune was also recorded by Mitch Miller in 1961 and Lorne Greene (with a kiddie choir) in 1966. The hilarious British attempt by Tommy Steele, OBE is more Music Hall than polka.

Brave Combo’s spirited “Dyno” (“push”) version of the tune may have been Dylan’s inspiration.

This song is included in the Christmas in the Heart recording, and royalties will be donated to charity in perpetuity.
