The Christmas lights up and down the street/The presents by the tree/I hear a knock, oh can it be/My wish is staring back at me

This made me smile.

An early Christmas present from me to you.

The best worst Christmas song of all time is James Brown’s “Soulful Christmas Tree,” hands down. 

Sample Lyrics:

I ain’t talkin’ just to tease

People like you don’t grow on trees

Looky here, that’s what it’s gonna be

Have everything I need 

Around my soulful Christmas tree

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year

I love you, have good cheer

I love ya, good God

And it only gets better.

Happy Christmas Eve, y’all! Hoping Santa gets you everything on your list.

As you know, I’m a big fan of Christmas music. Well my mom is, too, and when she casually mentioned Michael Buble’s new Christmas cd, I decided to buy it for her.

Obviously this is not the kind of gift that can be given on Christmas day, so we listened to it for the first time last night. It’s a great cd, but one track in particular stood out to me. 

Michael covers Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” His version is totally different, but I like it a lot. Have a listen.

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany

I immediately thought of those lyrics from “Santa Baby” when I saw this photo. Those little blue boxes aren’t decorations, but you get the idea.
Who sings the best version of “Santa Baby”? Earth Kitt, hands down. Click here and have a listen.
Only 10 days until Christmas, y’all!
