Christmas Time Is Here

by

Vince Guaraldi Trio



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This piano-based piece has become a Christmas favorite thanks to its use on the TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas, where the Peanuts characters sing the song. The vocal version runs 2:47, while an instrumental version goes 6:07.
This was used in the movie The Royal Tenenbaums and as the "sad" theme on the TV show Arrested Development. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France, for above 2)

Just a lovely, lilting tune. From one of my favorite albums of all time, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" by the Vince Guaraldi Trio. I play the CD in my car at Christmas time every year.

Rosemary Clooney sings it in the opening track of the compilation album "A Concord Jazz Christmas" (Volume 1). She sings it quite beautifully in the same key, at the same tempo and in the same tone as the original version. The album also features other fine 'n jazzy renditions of mostly traditional Christmas songs by various artists.

This song is slightly sampled in a cover of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by a band Copeland.
- Aaron, Syracuse, NY
Many artists have sung this song including Kenny Loggins and Diana Krall.
