It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … Choirs will be singing "Silent Night" … Christmas carols by candlelight … Chestnuts roasting on an open fire … Jack Frost nipping at your nose … Yuletide carols being sung by a choir … and folks dressed up like Eskimos … Now the goose is on the table … And the pudding made of fig … and the blue and silver candles … that would just have matched the hair in Grandma’s wig!

Yes, 'twas the Night before Christmas ... and 'twas time for a special Christmas Eve edition of Golden Oldies Top 40. I’m Santa Ceejay, so put out your milk and cookies, ‘cause I’ve got a special present for you under the tree this Christmas. So let’s get started with this week’s show.

Last week, Gene Pitney made it 3 weeks at the top with Town Without Pity? And Lesley Gore notched her 3rd top 2 hit with Judy’s Turn to Cry. Will Judy take a turn at #1? We’ll find out later in the countdown.

The 3 oldest songs on last week’s chart all drop out this week:

Bo Diddley by Bo Diddley ends its run at 15 weeks, topping off at #13.

Spanish Harlem says adios after 18 semanas, making it all the way to numero uno.

And Hitch Hike by Marvin Gaye has to thumb it after 16 weeks and a #9 showing.

And in Santa’s Christmas bag tonight are 3 new Christmas songs entering the chart this week:

Gene Autry debuts with 1 of 2 holiday hits in our countdown, at #40, Frosty the Snowman.

Nat King Cole is in the countdown this week with 3 songs; his newest is at #38, his holiday classic: The Christmas Song.

And the highest debut of the week, at #37, is Jimmy Boyd’s I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. Ho-ho-ho!

Let’s take a peek at #31 through #40:

TW 31 LW 31 (9) DUKE OF EARL GENE CHANDLER

TW 32 LW 30 (11) SINGING THE BLUES GUY MITCHELL

TW 33 LW 28 (11) WALK LIKE A MAN 4 SEASONS

TW 35 LW 33 (10) WITCH DOCTOR DAVID SEVILLE

TW 36 LW 34 (14) CRY BABY GARNET MIMMS & ENCHANTERS

TW 38 NEW THE CHRISTMAS SONG NAT KING COLE

TW 39LW 36 (15) TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY BABY BOBBY VEE

TW 40 NEW FROSTY THE SNOWMAN GENE AUTRY

Only one song moves up double digits this week … and it’s the by first rodent act in our countdown – the Chipmunks climb 10 branches this week from #35 to #25 with their eponymously-named The Chipmunk Song. Also shining in this portion of the countdown is another animal-themed Christmas song, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, by Gene Autry, up 5 from #32 to #27. Here are #21 through #30:

TW 21 LW 18 (12) DEEP PURPLE NINO TEMPO & APRIL STEVENS

TW 29 LW 29 (12) TOO YOUNG NAT 'KING' COLE

TW 30 LW 27 (9) RAMBLIN' ROSE NAT 'KING' COLE

3 holiday songs are in the top 20 this week:

White Christmas by Bing Crosby snows its way up 8 from #25 to#17; Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms rocks up 4 from #20 to #16; and Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee moves up 7 from #21 to #14. This makes a total of 9 holiday songs on this week’s chart, or almost one-fourth of the countdown.
