Okay, Little Richard is ripping off God knows how many other artists with this version of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” but he throws in a few original twists (the piano part is great) and nobody can goose a note like Little Richard. The song’s lyrics tell you to be good, but do you really doubt that Richard wants you to be naught.
