Hey Santa Claus – The Moonglows

Hey Santa Claus Christmas Song

Hey Santa Claus was recorded in 1953 and appears on The White Christmas Album. The Moonglows were an influential American R&B and doo-wop group based in Cleveland, Ohio. The original group was composed of Bobby Lester, Harvey Fuqua, Pete Graves and Prentiss Barnes, along with guitarist Billy Johnson.

Originally known as The Crazy Sounds, they were renamed by Cleveland DJ Alan Freed, who was known on the air as Moondog, and who decided to heavily promote the group. Marvin Gaye joined the group in 1958, and they later disbanded in 1960. The hopped-up Hey Santa Claus provides ample evidence that the Moonglows could rock with the best of them.
