"You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch," from the classic 1960s TV special based on Dr. Seuss' "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," continues our countdown of Overdrive's Top Christmas Songs, voted by readers.

Counting down to No. 1 in Overdrive‘s Top Christmas Songs polling, today’s entry is a classic of early rock ‘n’ roll, the 1957-recorded “Jingle Bell Rock,” made popular that year by singer Bobby Helms. The tune was penned in a collaboration of Texas ad writer James Ross Boothe and Massachusetts-born P.R. man Joseph Carleton Beal.
