7. Elvis Presley - 'Blue Christmas'
"Blue Christmas" was first recorded by Doye O'Dell in 1948, but Elvis Presley's 1957 version made the song internationally famous. He did a great version of the mournful song at his 1968 comeback special, which was originally conceived as a Christmas show. In 2010, it was the final song that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band played during their Asbury Park Carousel House set. It turned out to be the final song that Springsteen ever performed with Clarence Clemons.
