When I was a kid, Silver Bells was my favorite song on my parents’ single Christmas LP. It was a mix of artists and long gone, so I no longer know who sang that version. I’ve never been able to locate it. Most versions of Silver Bells actually bother me because they aren’t the right one. But this...
