Silver Bells Aled Jones and Sir Terry Wogan

Everyone enjoys a cover version of a single, and Christmas is the time when they become an incredibly popular trend, Well today we look at a song that was release as a cover of the 1950s hit of Silver Bells. The original track was written by Jay Livingstone and Ray Evans and was first sung by William Frawley.

In 2009, singer Aled Jones teamed up with Terry Wogan to release the track to raise money for charity. Aled Jones had not released a single for 24 years and Terry Wogan had not been in the chance sits the 1978 hit The Floral Dance. It was produced by Jon Kelly and Wix and the song was taken off the album Aled’s Chrsitmas Gift
