On the La Grange details page it says

Uses parts from "Boogie Chillen' written by John Lee Hooker, Bernard Besman - Element - Guitar pattern and the "howl, howl, howl" vocal line"

IMO it would be sufficient to include this addition on the Here Comes Santa Claus / Jingle Bells details page.

you could also apply this addition to Spirit in the Sky , but IMO that riff is not exactly the Hooker riff.

Hooker had long acknowledged that his sound was far from original. He has often attributed his musical style of “boogie” as his version of the boogie-woogie style he heard growing up in Mississippi.

Thanks. I added a comment to the track but will revise it. It now reads: This track uses the guitar pattern from Boogie Chillen'.
