Song Of The Week: The Chipmunk Song



If you asked my mom what song reminds her of us kids during the holidays, she would most definitely say The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late) (1999 Digital Remaster).  Not much has changed as I move into adulthood.  At almost 31, I still love this song whenever it comes on in my holiday mix, on my pandora holiday station or on the radio.  My favorite line is of course, "Me I want a huula hooop" (speaking of hula hoop - absolutely hooked on Hula Hoop for Wii) sung by the troublemaker Alvin. 

Interesting tid bit about this holiday favorite...it won three Grammy's and is the last Christmas song to reach #1 on any US single record chart totaling performance of all available records (source).  Not too shabby for three fictional characters! 

What are wishing for this holiday?
