Countdown to Christmas: The Christmas Song (1985)

You've never heard "The Christmas Song" quite like this.

Released as the 2nd single from Billy Crystal's 1985 CD, "Marvelous", the actor is a one-man jam, if you will, using the voices of Sammy Davis, Jr., Muhammad Ali, Howard Cosell, and, of course, Fernando, plus a few other "friends", to reinterpret Mel Torme's holiday classic, best known for having been recorded by Nat King Cole, among others.

Unfortunately, there is no actual video, so the following slide show will do. "Sammy"'s intro takes too long, if you ask me.
