RJ and Ian are back from Tokyo and celebrating their jet-lag with songs from decades that have never been featured on the show before. First, 1898’s “Sleigh Ride Party/Jingle Bells” by the Edison Male Quartet becomes the oldest song we’ve every talked about on the show by several decades, while also proving that there is no such thing as a “standard” version of Jingle Bells. Then, 1904’s “Old Jim’s Christmas Hymn” by Albert C. Campbell and James F. Harrison provides a much more moving story than we expected given the goofy title.

This week’s ranking music is “Swingin’ Them Jingle Bells” by Fats Waller.
