The Boss, Bruce Springsteen singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town. The song is by J. Fred Coots and Haven Gillespie, and was first sung on Eddie Cantor‘s radio show in November 1934. It became an instant hit with orders for 100,000 copies of sheet music the next day and over 400,000 copies sold by Christmas. The earliest known recorded version of the song was performed by George Hall and the Hotel Taft Orchestra, and  was also recorded on September 26, 1935, by Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra.
