Countdown to Christmas:Favorite Christmas Songs-Song #19

Song #19--Aaron Neville: Please Come Home For Christmas

"Please Come Home for Christmas" is a Christmas song, released in 1960, by the American blues singer and pianist Charles Brown. Hitting Billboard's  Hot 100 chart in December 1961, the tune Brown co-wrote with Gene Redd peaked at position #76. It appeared on the Christmas Singles chart for nine seasons, hitting #1 in 1972.
It includes a number of characteristics of Christmas music such as multiple references in the lyrics to the Christmas season and Christmas traditions, and the use of a Church bell type sound, created using a piano , at the start of the song. It is sometimes referred to as "Bells Will Be Ringing", which are the first four words of the song.

Please note:
There is nothing wrong with the video the music/video starts at 15 seconds in this was the only version that seems available.
