No. 34: Randy Travis, ‘Meet Me Under the Mistletoe’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs
Randy Travis was riding the crest of the New Traditionalist wave when he released his first Christmas album in 1989. Titled ‘An Old Time Christmas,’ the record featured a selection of Christmas classics like ‘Winter Wonderland’ and ‘Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,’ along with some excellent original songs.
One of the best of the new tracks was ‘Meet Me Under the Mistletoe,’ a light-hearted song about a couple who are so busy at holiday time that they have had no time together. “Meet me under the mistletoe at midnight Christmas Eve / Your sweet kiss is the first gift I’d like to receive,” Travis sings — a sentiment that qualifies it for the Top 50 Country Christmas Songs.
