Christmas Countdown 2012: 14 days!

Brenda Lee ChristmasIf you’ve never heard Brenda Lee’s iconic version of Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree before, you must be living under a rock! The song peaked at #14 on the Billboard charts in 1960, but it was actually recorded in 1958 when Brenda was only 14! (Yes, the version we still hear today is Brenda Lee at 13.)

Since then, it has become very popular during the holidays and is played seemingly non-stop. Last year, Nielsen SoundScan rated it the fourth most popular Christmas digital single in history.

Today — Dec. 12 — Brenda Lee turns 68. Happy birthday!
