Bruce Springsteen, 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town'
Recorded at a Long Island gig in December 1975, Bruce Springsteen released the song as the B-Side to "My Hometown" in 1985 and it quickly became a holiday staple. Springsteen will usually break out the song if he's doing a show around Christmas, though occasionally he'll do it other times of the year — most famously at Bonnaroo in June of 2009.
