I actually collect Christmas records, believe it or not.

0:00:050:00:07

The kids know it's Christmas if the Chet Harkins Christmas album goes on.

0:00:070:00:12

That's a definite sign that Santa is on his way.

0:00:120:00:14

For me, it goes back to Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby,

0:00:140:00:19

just those voices that sound like they're sitting next to a fire.

0:00:190:00:24

There are standards like Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

0:00:240:00:27

that tend to come back and come back,

0:00:270:00:30

but there's been additions to that.

0:00:300:00:33

You know, Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree was a later addition.

0:00:330:00:36

Judy Garland, that kind of stuff.

0:00:360:00:40

Frank Sinatra, obviously the Rat Pack, Bing Crosby.

0:00:400:00:43

Yeah, generally that kind of era.

0:00:430:00:46

That was when it all came to life.

0:00:460:00:48

People weren't afraid to write lyrics that were innocent

0:00:480:00:51

and happy and carefree, and that really captured a moment.

0:00:510:00:54

And I think that's why they've stood the test of time.

0:00:540:00:56

# Just hearing those bells a jingling

0:00:560:00:58

# Jing-jing-jingling Jing-jing-jing. #

0:00:580:01:00

Happy Christmas!

0:01:000:01:02

# Oh, the weather outside is frightful

0:01:050:01:09

# But the fire is so delightful

0:01:090:01:14

# Since we've no place to go

0:01:140:01:17

# Let it snow, let it snow

0:01:170:01:20

# Let it snow

0:01:200:01:21

# It doesn't show signs of stopping

0:01:210:01:25

# And I've bought some corn for popping

0:01:250:01:29

# The lights are turned way down low

0:01:290:01:32

# Let it snow, let it snow

0:01:320:01:35

# Let it snow

0:01:350:01:37

# When we finally kiss goodnight

0:01:370:01:40

# How I hate going out in the storm

0:01:400:01:44

# But if you really hold me tight

0:01:440:01:49

# All the way home, I'll be warm

0:01:490:01:53

# The fire is slowly dying

0:01:530:01:56

# And, my dear, we're still goodbye-ing

0:01:560:02:00

# So long as you love me so

0:02:000:02:04

# Let it snow, let it snow

0:02:040:02:07

# Let it snow

0:02:070:02:08

# Ba-ba-ai-ba-ba-rum-pow!

0:02:080:02:11

# Ba-ba-ai-ba-ba-rum-pow!

0:02:160:02:20

0:02:310:02:35

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:02:350:02:39

# When we finally kiss goodnight

0:02:390:02:42

# How I hate going out in the storm

0:02:420:02:46

# But if you really hold me tight

0:02:460:02:51

# All the way home, I'll be warm

0:02:510:02:54

# Oh, the fire is slowly dying

0:02:540:02:58

# And, my dear, we're still goodbye-ing

0:02:580:03:00

# Baby, don't you say goodbye

0:03:000:03:02

-# So long as you love me so

-Just as long as you love me so

0:03:020:03:06

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:03:060:03:09

# Oh, the weather outside is so frightful

0:03:100:03:14

# But my dear is so delightful

0:03:140:03:18

# Since we've no place to go

0:03:180:03:21

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:03:210:03:26

# It doesn't show signs of stopping, oh

0:03:260:03:30

# And I've got some corn for popping

0:03:300:03:33

# Turn those lights down low

0:03:330:03:37

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

0:03:370:03:41

# When we finally say goodnight

0:03:410:03:45

# How I hate to be in the storm

0:03:490:03:53

0:03:530:03:56

# Oh, the fire is slowly dying

0:03:560:03:59

# It's slowly dying

0:03:590:04:02

# And we're saying goodbye

0:04:020:04:04

# Just turn the lamp down low

0:04:040:04:08

# Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. #

0:04:080:04:14

It's now my very great pleasure to introduce to you

0:11:260:11:29

a really, really wonderful band, The Mummers.

0:11:290:11:32

# The day is done, the blinds are drawn

0:11:530:11:55

# The sound of afternoon is gone

0:11:550:12:00

# The corner store has locked its door

0:12:010:12:05

# And everyone has left for home

0:12:050:12:10

# When their sleepy little heads

0:12:100:12:13

# Settle snug inside their beds

0:12:130:12:16

# You and I will stay

0:12:160:12:19

# And watch the sun fade away

0:12:190:12:23

# A lot of men who would be king

0:12:250:12:29

# The cavalier, the profiteer

0:12:310:12:34

# The one who knows only suffering

0:12:340:12:40

# As the cannons gather rust

0:12:400:12:42

# All their castles turn to dust

0:12:420:12:46

# You and I will stay

0:12:460:12:49

# And watch it all fade away

0:12:490:12:55

# The sea will rise, the mountains fall

0:13:150:13:18

# The earth will turn itself upside down

0:13:180:13:22

# But we have seen it all before

0:13:240:13:27

# We will always be around

0:13:270:13:33

# In a hundred million years

0:13:330:13:37

# When the planet disappears

0:13:370:13:39

# You and I will stay

0:13:390:13:42

# And watch it all fade away

0:13:420:13:47

# And in a million trillion years

0:13:480:13:51

# When the stars all disappear

0:13:510:13:54

# You and I will stay

0:13:540:13:57

# And watch it all fade away

0:13:570:14:03

# Fade away. #

0:14:040:14:08

Thank you.

0:14:420:14:43

And now we're going to pass over

0:14:450:14:47

to the incredible voice of Mr Gregory Porter.

0:14:470:14:50

# Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

0:15:080:15:14

# Jack Frost nipping at your nose

0:15:160:15:21

# Yule tide carols being sung by a choir

0:15:230:15:30

# And folks dressed up like Eskimos

0:15:300:15:36

# Everybody knows

0:15:360:15:38

# A turkey and some mistletoe

0:15:380:15:43

# Helps to make the season bright

0:15:460:15:52

# Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

0:15:540:16:00

# Will find it hard to sleep tonight

0:16:000:16:07

# They know that Santa's on his way

0:16:070:16:13

# He's bringing lots of toys

0:16:130:16:17

# And goodies on his sleigh

0:16:170:16:21

# And every mother's child

0:16:210:16:25

# Is going to spy

0:16:250:16:28

# To see if reindeers really know

0:16:280:16:33

# How to fly

0:16:330:16:35

# So now I'm offering

0:16:350:16:40

# This simple phrase

0:16:400:16:43

# To kids from one to 92

0:16:430:16:50

# All thought it's been said

0:16:500:16:54

# Many times, many ways

0:16:540:16:58

# Merry Christmas to you

0:16:580:17:03

# So now I'm offering

0:17:350:17:40

# This simple phrase

0:17:400:17:43

0:19:150:19:17

# She would

0:19:230:19:24

# She could

0:19:240:19:27

# So she pulled my lion's tail

0:19:270:19:31

# And caused me pain

0:19:310:19:34

# She said

0:19:370:19:38

# "Lions are made for cages

0:20:140:20:16

# And I cut my mane

0:20:160:20:20

# And I would if I could

0:20:200:20:26

0:27:200:27:23

0:27:230:27:25

# So hurry down the chimney tonight

0:27:250:27:29

# Santa Baby

0:27:340:27:36

# Santa Baby

0:27:450:27:46

# So hurry down the chimney tonight

0:27:460:27:50

# Think of all the fun I've missed

0:27:550:28:00

# Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed

0:28:000:28:06

# Next year, I could be just as good

0:28:060:28:10

# If you'll check off my Christmas list

0:28:100:28:16

# Santa Baby

0:28:160:28:18

# So let's see if you believe in me

0:29:140:29:19

# Santa Baby

0:29:210:29:22

# Fill my stocking with a duplex

0:29:220:29:26

# Sign your X on the line

0:29:280:29:31

0:29:440:29:48

# A ring

0:29:480:29:51

# I don't mean on the phone

# Tonight. #

0:30:080:30:10

-Thank you.

-Thanks a lot, ladies and gentlemen.

0:30:140:30:17

What a wonderful, wonderful night this is.

0:30:170:30:21

It's with great pleasure that we introduce to you, once again,

0:30:210:30:25

the legendary Carole King.

0:30:250:30:27

I'd like to do a song for you that was written by Louise Goffin

0:30:400:30:45

with Britain's own Guy Chambers.

0:30:450:30:47

New Year's Day.

0:31:040:31:06

# Everybody makes a dream this time of year

0:31:080:31:14

# From now on, it's gonna be good for you

0:31:140:31:18

# All your friends and family

0:31:200:31:24

# Gather round in peace and harmony

0:31:260:31:32

# It's a time to remember your blessings

0:31:320:31:36

# It's a time to remember your goals

0:31:390:31:43

# All the people in your life

0:31:450:31:48

# Be they new friends or old

0:31:510:31:55

# And it could be the time of your life

0:31:570:32:01

# Everything's gonna turn out all right

0:32:030:32:08

# It'll be OK

0:32:080:32:09

# In every way makin' it better

0:32:090:32:13

# It's New Year's Day

0:32:150:32:19

# And should old friends be forgot

0:32:300:32:33

# Keep everything they gave you

0:32:360:32:40

# And though they may seem so far away

0:32:420:32:46

# You walk with them each and every day

0:32:480:32:54

# And I know sometimes the road isn't easy

0:32:540:32:59

# And we've said some things we'd never wished said

0:32:590:33:06

# Once a few rounds you'd loved and lost

0:33:060:33:12

# You pick yourself up and take a chance again

0:33:120:33:18

# And it could be the time of your life

0:33:180:33:22

# Everything's gonna turn out all right

0:33:250:33:28

# It'll be OK

0:33:280:33:30

# In every way makin' it better

0:33:300:33:33

# It's New Year's Day

0:33:350:33:41

# Countdown's done

0:33:490:33:53

# And we'll sway along with the band

0:33:530:33:58

# Just one more dance

0:34:010:34:04

# May all your dreams come true

0:34:040:34:11

# And it could be the time of your life

0:34:130:34:19

# Everything's gonna turn out all right

0:34:190:34:24

# It'll be OK

0:34:240:34:25

# In every way makin' it better

0:34:250:34:31

# It's New Year's Day

0:34:310:34:37

# New Year's Day. #

0:34:430:34:49

Thank you.

0:34:560:34:59

Thank you. And now it is my great pleasure

0:35:060:35:10

to present this wonderful band that I actually played with

0:35:100:35:13

on the Later Show with Jools, The Mummers.

0:35:130:35:18

We're going to do a little song from the 1940s. You might know this one.

0:35:230:35:29

# I'm dreaming

0:35:540:35:57

# Of a white Christmas

0:35:570:36:02

# Just like the ones I used to know

0:36:020:36:07

# Where the tree-tops glisten

0:36:090:36:13

# And children listen

0:36:130:36:17

# To hear sleigh bells in the snow

0:36:170:36:23

# I'm dreaming

0:36:250:36:29

# Of a white Christmas

0:36:290:36:33

# With every Christmas card I write

0:36:330:36:39

# May your days be merry and bright

0:36:400:36:47

# And may all your Christmases be white

0:36:490:36:56

# May your days be merry

0:37:150:37:19

# And bright

0:37:190:37:23

# And may all your Christmases

0:37:240:37:29

# Be white. #

0:37:290:37:33

Thank you very much.

0:38:070:38:10

And now handing back once more to Mr Gregory Porter.

0:38:100:38:13

Thank you so much.

0:38:190:38:22

This next song is a favourite of mine,

0:38:230:38:28

and truly an honour to sing it before you tonight.

0:38:280:38:31

And for this wonderful lady, Miss Carole King.

0:38:310:38:35

# When this old world starts getting me down

0:38:450:38:51

# And people are much too much

0:38:510:38:55

# For me to face

0:38:550:38:59

# I climb way up to the top of the stairs

0:39:020:39:07

# And all my cares just drift

0:39:070:39:11

# Right into space

0:39:110:39:15

# On the roof, it's peaceful as can be

0:39:180:39:25

# Where the world below can't bother me

0:39:290:39:34

# Oh, let me tell you

0:39:350:39:38

# When I get home feelin' tired and blue

0:39:380:39:44

# I go up where the air is fresh and sweet

0:39:450:39:51

# I get away from the hustling crowds

0:39:530:39:58

# And all that rat race noise

0:39:580:40:02

# Out on the street

0:40:020:40:06

# On the roof's the only place I know

0:40:090:40:16

# Where you just have to wish to make it so

0:40:180:40:25

# Oh, let's go up on the roof

0:40:250:40:31

# At night, the stars put on a show for free

0:40:450:40:51

# And, darling

0:40:550:40:56

# You can share it all with me

0:40:560:41:02

# Woah

0:41:020:41:09

# Don't you know, don't you know

0:41:090:41:11

# Don't you know, don't you know

0:41:110:41:14

# Right smack down in the middle of town

0:41:160:41:21

# I've found a paradise that's troubleproof

0:41:210:41:28

# So if this world starts getting you down

0:41:320:41:37

# There's room enough for two up on the roof

0:41:370:41:43

# Up on the roof

0:41:460:41:51

# Darling, up on the roof

0:41:510:41:56

# Come on, baby

0:41:560:41:58

# Let's go

0:41:580:42:01

# Let's go up on the roof

0:42:010:42:05

# Hey, let's go up on the roof

0:42:060:42:09

# Woah, let's go up on the roof

0:42:100:42:15

# Well, let's go up on the roof

0:42:170:42:19

# Yeah

0:42:190:42:21

# Come on, let's go up on the roof

0:42:210:42:24

# Woah, let's climb the stairs

0:42:260:42:28

# And let's go

0:42:280:42:31

# Let's go up on the roof

0:42:310:42:35

# Woah

0:42:370:42:41

# Well, now, let's go up

0:42:430:42:46

# On the roof. #

0:42:460:42:50

Next up, ladies and gentlemen, Mr Richard Hawley.

0:43:170:43:20

# It was your birthday yesterday

0:43:280:43:32

# I gave a gift that almost took your breath away

0:43:330:43:37

# But, to be honest I nearly left it on the train

0:43:400:43:46

# For your lover give some time

0:43:460:43:50

# You talk forever on the phone

0:43:530:43:57

# To your mother And with my thoughts, I'm left alone

0:43:590:44:04

# Now and then, I think how strange our love has grown

0:44:060:44:10

# For your lover give some time

0:44:120:44:16

# I will give up these cigarettes

0:44:200:44:25

# Stay at home and watch you mend the tears in your dress

0:44:250:44:30

# Have your name in a rose tattooed across my chest

0:44:310:44:36

# And be your lover for all time

0:44:380:44:42

# Maybe I will drink a little less

0:44:450:44:50

# Come home early and not complain about the deaths

0:44:520:44:56

# And give you flowers from the graveyard now and then

0:44:580:45:03

# For your lover give some time

0:45:040:45:09

# I think of places that I've seen

0:45:390:45:44

# A skipping stone across the ocean I have been

0:45:440:45:49

# A rootless man with no-one else to share my dreams

0:45:510:45:55

# And for my lover gave no time

0:45:580:46:01

# Here's a toast to you, Helene

0:46:060:46:11

# To all the cinemas we ran in from the rain

0:46:110:46:17

# Laughing, clutching soaking newspapers to your face

0:46:170:46:22

# Then for your love you gave some time

0:46:240:46:29

# I will give up these cigarettes

0:46:320:46:37

# Stay at home and watch you mend the tears in your dress

0:46:370:46:43

# Have your name in a rose tattooed across my chest

0:46:440:46:50

# And be your lover for all time

0:46:500:46:55

# Maybe I will drink a little less

0:46:580:47:04

# Come home early and not complain about the deaths

0:47:040:47:09

# And give you flowers from the graveyard now and then

0:47:110:47:15

# And for my lover give some time

0:47:170:47:20

# For your lover give some time. #

0:47:240:47:31

# I'll have a blue Christmas

0:47:580:48:04

# Without you

0:48:040:48:06

# I'll be so blue just thinking

0:48:080:48:14

# About you

0:48:140:48:17

# Decorations of red

0:48:190:48:23

# On a green Christmas tree

0:48:230:48:27

# Won't seem the same, dear

0:48:300:48:34

# If you're not there with me

0:48:340:48:37

# And when those blue snowflakes

0:48:370:48:44

# Start falling

0:48:440:48:47

# That's when those blue, blue memories

0:48:470:48:54

# Start calling

0:48:540:48:56

# You'll be doing all right

0:48:580:49:02

# With your Christmas of white

0:49:030:49:09

# But I'll have a blue, blue, blue Christmas

0:49:090:49:16

# I'll have a blue Christmas

0:49:560:50:03

# Without you

0:50:030:50:06

# I'll be so blue just thinking

0:50:070:50:13

# All about you

0:50:130:50:15

# Decorations of red

0:50:180:50:23

# On a green Christmas tree

0:50:230:50:26

# Won't seem the same, dear

0:50:290:50:32

# If you're not there with me

0:50:320:50:36

# And when those blue, blue snowflakes

0:50:360:50:42

# Start falling

0:50:420:50:45

0:51:010:51:06

Chris Sheridan on lap steel.

0:51:400:51:42

I'd like to introduce back to the stage, probably...

well, definitely one of the world's greatest songwriters of all time.

0:51:560:52:00

Please welcome to the stage Miss Carole King.

0:52:000:52:03

Thank you. This is such a great group, yes?

0:52:140:52:19

# Have yourself a merry little Christmas

0:52:320:52:39

# Let your heart be light

0:52:410:52:45

# From now on, our troubles will be out of sight

0:52:480:52:55

# Have yourself a merry little Christmas

0:53:020:53:08

# Make the Yuletide gay

0:53:100:53:15

# From now on, our troubles

0:53:170:53:22

# Will be miles away

0:53:220:53:27

# Here we are, as in olden days

0:53:310:53:38

# Happy golden days of yore

0:53:380:53:43

# Faithful friends who are dear to us

0:53:460:53:53

0:53:530:54:00

We all want to thank you so much for coming tonight,

0:55:130:55:17

and for being here, and for sharing Christmas with us.

0:55:170:55:20

We would like to do one last song for you, all together.

0:55:200:55:25

Gregory, would you like to kick it off?

0:55:250:55:28

# Woah, merry Christmas, baby

0:55:340:55:38

# You sure do treat me right

0:55:380:55:41

# Well, merry Christmas, baby

0:55:430:55:46

# You sure do treat me nice

0:55:460:55:50

# Brought me a diamond ring for Christmas

0:55:530:55:56

# I feel like I'm in paradise

0:55:560:55:59

# Woah, sing it, girls!

0:55:590:56:01

# Well, I'm feeling mighty fine

0:56:010:56:04

# I got music on my radio

0:56:040:56:07

# I said, I feel mighty fine

0:56:100:56:13

# I got music on my radio

0:56:130:56:16

# And I got the feeling someone's gonna kiss me

0:56:180:56:21

# Cos I'm standing under the mistletoe

0:56:210:56:25

# Oh, yeah!

0:56:250:56:28

# Santa came down the chimney

0:56:280:56:30

# Half past three

0:56:300:56:31

0:56:310:56:33
