'Santa Claus is Coming to Town': Who sings it better-Jackson 5 or M Buble?

'Santa Claus is Coming to Town': Who sings it better, the Jackson 5 or Michael Buble?  by  NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

12/11/13

The kids or the crooner? Who should sings the holiday staple “Santa Claus is Coming to Town?" Michael Jackson gives it all he’s got in this much-played version off the Jackson 5's 1970 Christmas album — the third of their three top-selling albums that year.

Conversely, Michael Buble swings out with his dreamier version, set in mid-tempo and filled with big-band horn arrangements. He performed the song on his 2011 Christmas TV special again last year; here's hoping it will be part of his upcoming NBC holiday special on Dec. 18.

Which one is in your holiday rotation?

This is the 11th song in our countdown to Christmas 2013 in which we selected 25 pairs of popular holiday tunes. We’ve gathered old-fashioned or more traditional renditions and pitted them against newfangled or more modern ones. Give a listen. See which one you like best.

Is there another version that is better than either of these?

Personal note: Uh J5 takes it imo! (no surprise there right?)

I agree with WATW, although Michael Buble is sweet and indeed has silky, soft swaying vocals - we cannot put our boys (J5) in second place. So I'm definitely choosing them for 1st place without any doubt.

Mr Buble is also a real comedian, he appears on our British TV fairly regularly on chat shows, and he once came out with a cracking story that had me laughing for days afterwards. Even now as soon as he appears on TV I just recall that hilarious story and I chuckle as soon as I see him  Laughing 

The story went where he was telling about this beautiful female fan who had been waiting hours to get his autograph at a record store and his manager in tow. The female looked seductively into Michael's eyes and asked if his pianist gave lessons to which shocked Michael, so he called his manager across and took him to one side. He pointed at the woman telling his manager that she had embarrassed him. His manager asked "why"? Michael replied 'Well..she just asked me if my penis! gives lessons. The woman heard him and she called him across saying excuse me! ( this time glaring at him in a non-seductive way lol,) her reply was "I SAID! "DOES YOUR "PIANIST" GIVE LESSONS". With which Michael just wanted the floor to open up so he could sink with embarrassment. LMAO!   It was hilarious! What a story.
