Bryan Adams – Christmas Time (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on December 22nd, 2011


“Christmas Time” is a song recorded by Bryan Adams. It was written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance and became Adams’ most popular Christmas song. “Christmas Time” was written and recorded in Vancouver, Canada. Over twenty years after it was first recorded, the song still receives significant radio airplay each year during the Christmas season. No music video was shot for the single, although there was a live video made for its B-side, “Reggae Christmas”, featuring a guest appearance by Pee Wee Herman. The song won Gold Single Award for 50,000 sales of the 45 RPM single in Canada. It reached #4 on Billboard Christmas Chart.

In 2001 Bryan performed “Christmas Time” at the Vatican for Pope John-Paul II. The performance was included on a DVD, released in 2002, titled “A Musical Christmas From The Vatican”.

    One of my all-time favorites Christmas songs, thanks Paul! After all these years, I’m still left to wonder why this song and Wham’s “Last Christmas” never made the main Hot 100 chart. I guess back then, they might not have had enough sales and/or airplay points to chart. The Band Aid single at least made the chart, though.

    You’re welcome Dan. It’s one of my favorites also. Hope you have a great Christmas.
