Elvis recorded Blue Christmas on September 5, 1957, at Radio Recorders. Take #3 was chosen for release. It wasn’t until seven years later that Blue Christmas was released as a single, reaching the top of Billboard’s special Christmas Singles chart. Elvis sang the song in his 1968 TV special, Elvis. Blue Christmas was replaced in the 1969 repeat of the show with Tiger Man.
Blue Christmas was written by Billy Hayes and Jay Johnson in 1949
