Darlene Love will be on Letterman for the 27th time singing Christmas Baby! She was 72 in July!
LOVE this song - youtube has many of the renditions over the years-always fun to see how the choir/band are dressed and the sax solo is always fun! Her first time in 1986 and last year-2012 at this link: -

Here's an original by a lady who I posted previously here.

This is an original and she in the beginning she explains the story behind the song.



It may seem strange to post a video of the same song that was already posted but the it's pretty touching since the previous posting has info on the background of it, I thought I'd still keep that one up.

If there's any version of the Rudolph song that I like, it's this one.

Here's a couple. First this Stevie Wonder Classic. Other have remade it but it doesn't compare to the original.

Stevie Wonder - What Christmas Means To Me (1967) - YouTube



Stevie Wonder - Someday At Christmas - YouTube
This is a new one I just discoverd.

Colbie Caillat - Christmas In The Sand - YouTube

I know Christmas In The Sand probably doesn't sound right but what do you expect from a California girl.

Love Colbie.

Here's a interview with Colbie and about writing the song.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/m...video/1733691/
Maybe it's a bit too soon but why not.

Don't know too many Christmas song that are more warm weathered like Colbie's song but here's another.

I've always been a sucker for the Roches Christmas album We Three Kings. Especially Do You Hear What I Hear?

Joey + Rory - Let it Snow (Somewhere Else) - YouTube


Maybe some of you noticed that both Joey & Rory were referring to this Jimmy Buffet song "Let It Snow Somewhere Else." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCDWt7aVMVI



I just found out about this tune by Christina Perri.
She's actually a great modern day artist.

Tell me if this get you.

Funny thing this isn't the original version of this song, though The Herald Simeone Chorale was the first to popularize it.
