Rockin’ Around #1

One person puts them both to shame.  Brenda Lee has been singing “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” for 65 years.  And last week, the song went five-times platinum and finally hit #1 on the Hot 100!  She recorded the song when she was 13 – which, for those of you doing the math, still makes her younger than Darlene Love, but a year older than Cher.  While this is the third #1 of Lee’s career, it is the first time the song hit the top of the charts.  The secret sauce (so to speak) was that this year she released a music video for the song – which featured Tanya Tucker and Trisha Yearwood.  You rock, Brenda!
