Hi, Everybody!!! Welcome back to the countdown.

Today’s song was written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich & Phil Spector. It did not have chart success in either the year it was originally released-1963-or the one where it was reissued-1964. But it did have Cher on backing vocals (along with west coast girl group The Blossoms) and Sonny Bono on percussion (as part of the group, The Wrecking Crew).
Dedicated to all our service men and women who cannot be home with their loved ones and families this year. Praying you all make it back safely for Christmas 2019.
Darlene Love: “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” (1963 studio version).
***** Since it is not Christmas to me until I see her perform this on “The Late Show with David Letterman”, here is the video from her last appearance on 2014. With all due respect to the immensely talented Rockettes, that night the “Christmas Spectacular” was in The Ed Sullivan Theater and not Radio City Musical Hall.
*****And since I am feeling nostalgic, here is the clip from her first appearance on Dave’s show (1986).
I do not own the rights to anything. I am just sharing some things that I love with you 🙂
What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?
Until next time, happy listening!!!
