The Beach Boys gave us a wonderful gift in 1964 with their Christmas album, a follow-up to their "Little Saint Nick" single from the year before. The album quickly became a staple of the holidays. So far, Mike Love and Al Jardine have each released solo Christmas singles, but Brian Wilson is the only one who put out his own Christmas album. For years, Brian posted free Christmas songs on his website before putting out "What I Really Want For Christmas". Here's a little behind-the-scenes video of his recording of "On Christmas Day", which first popped up as a free song on his website, and then turned up on his Christmas album in 2005. Happy Birthday, Brian!
