Hey Santa! (Carnie and Wendy Wilson)
After their debut album dropped in 1990 Wilson Phillips were one of the world’s best selling groups but by 1993, with a failed sophomore effort, they were on hiatus. That gave sister members Carnie and Wendy Wilson the opportunity to record a Christmas album. Although not a major success the album contains harmonious versions of many yuletide classics, with Hey Santa being the only original song. Carnie and then Wilson Phillips have since recorded additional Christmas records but Hey Santa is only on the 1993 effort.
Fun fact: The song is written by Carnie, Wendy and Jack Kugell. Kugell is a co-writer of the luscious Martina McBride track Valentine.
The theme for Bestest Song Club December 2015 is: Bestest Modern Christmas Songs.
Criteria: Song must have been recorded no earlier than 1980.
