Yule Love

"He's behind you!"
Those of you who don't 'do' Twitter (and I wish you would, we'd have such fun) may have missed my link to this ace recent interview with Darlene Love.

Meanwhile, written by Ellie Greenwich, Jeff Barry & Phil Spector here is possibly The Greatest Christmas Pop Record Of All Time...

Darlene Love - 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' (1963)


  1. The ultimate Christmas tune, no need for any debates. Although I wish I was down for longer than a day next week, then we could have the debate anyway.

  2. You know what? That's even got me in the mood. Well, very nearly...

  3. I don't think I actually knew what Darlene looked like before this picture. She's no bag of sprouts is she? (I could mention cracker, nuts, stuffing and liquers at this point, but will save it until Christmas day).

    Would place it in a Christmas all-time Top 10, I'll give you that, but ...

  4. Great record. Interesting that both this song and the other truly revered Xmas tune (Have youself a merry little Christmas) are shot through with misery about who's not there or about imminent troubles. They're Xmas songs for people who can't take their Xmas straight which is say, almost everyone.

  5. plague has a point.

    Meanwhile ... top of the heed .. The Sweptaways, Julie London, Low, St Etienne, EBTG, Peter & The Test Tube Babies, Crystals, Charles Brown, Jona Lewie, Pogues

  6. I think that Mr H and DVD are conspiring to get another 150 comments post. I for one will not be taken in by such subterfuge

  7. Sorry, it's 'I Believe In Father Christmas' by Greg Lake.

  8. A fine Christmas tune, Mr H

    Thank you most kindly
