Mel & Kim - Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree (1987)

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree was originally recorded by Brenda Lee way back in 1958 when she was just 13 years old. However, the song didn't become a hit until the festive season of 1960, when it reached #14 in the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S.

Comedian Mel Smith and singer/songwriter Kim Wilde recorded their amusing cover version to raise funds for the Comic Relief charity. Mel & Kim was also a parody of the singing sisters Mel & Kim, who were also achieving hits in the late 80s with songs such as Respectable and Showing Out. The song reached #3 in the UK during December 1987.
