Percy Faith & His Orchestra & Chorus – “We Need a Little Christmas” – (1966)

“We Need a Little Christmas” is a song that was written for the Broadway musical Mame. It was first recorded by Angela Lansbury, the star of the original Broadway production. But, honestly, her voice is so grating that her version of the song is nearly unlistenable. It’s way to show-tune-y. This is a fairly popular rendition with a simple choral arrangement instead of one booming female voice. Likely, this is the one that’s been playing on the radio since Thanksgiving.
