Some (Darlene) Love for Christmas
I don’t need anything for Christmas this year because one of my biggest holiday dreams already came true.
At the holiday party for my corporate day job (yes, tis true, I do not make my living from the genius that is this blog), the company’s CEO revealed a special guest to get us into the holiday mood: the fabulous Darlene Love! Ms. Love is not only a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee with a treasure trove of amazing recordings but she also happens to sing my favorite pop Christmas carol of all time. Like David Letterman, I can’t have Christmas without hearing her sing “Christmas/Baby Please Come Home.”
And last week, she sang it for me (ok, and a few hundred other people) live and in person. Amazing. I’m not ashamed to admit I got a little teary.
I can’t get you that experience, but here she is singing it on last year’s annual Letterman appearance…
Yeah. She’s cool like that.
Happy Holidays…may all your Christmas wishes come true.
