It's not just the song, but the arrangement and the tension between Elvis and rest of the instrumentation and voices by The Jordanaires. Operatic, and I believe the song is based on an Italian pop song, it's interesting to hear a European melody attached to a solid American aesthetic such as Elvis. The songwriters Aaron Schroeder and Wally Gold also wrote Elvis' "Good Luck Charm. To me, this is a sound that is separate from his work in the 1950s.

Elvis Presley cemented the status of "Blue Christmas" as a rock-and-roll holiday classic by recording it for his 1957 LP Elvis' Christmas Album. Presley's version is notable musicologically as well as culturally in that the vocal group the Jordanaires (especially in the soprano line, sung by Millie Kirkham) replace many major and just minor thirds with neutral and septimal minor thirds, respectively. In addition to contributing to the overall tone of the song, the resulting "blue notes" constitute a musical play on words. It's Now or Never", "A Mess of Blues". Are You Lonesome Tonight?" 1961.
