Overheard at Lem's:

I know most all of those songs by heart because my parents had those vinyl LP's

Whenever my 1 year old granddaughter is having a meltdown my daughter plays this song, O' Holy Night, sung by Josh Groban, and she IMMEDIATELY calms down. This baby responds to music like no person I've seen. She starts dancing as soon as she hears music.

Which just made me think, maybe she is a member of Archie Bell and the Drells? But, I know she's never been to Houston.

Some of the rock and roll Christmas songs from the 50s and 60s were pretty good.

Hey chick, Andy Williams is okay but I've heard a lot more stirring renditions of fall on your knees. :^/

Chick we had a couple promotional albums we loved. One was from Maxwell House. It pictured the faces of each singer in a circle, and the circles formed a Christmas tree. Let see, Jo Stafford sang Silver Bells, Mathis...Chesnuts roasting, Andy Williams...fall on your knees...but then that might have been the other album.

Fall on your knees.

Sounds like an order.

I thought only the ISIS types did that.

(Nice song, though.)

As an adult I've always liked the Pogues, Fairytale of New York..... Gene Autry's version of Rudolph is the first Christmas song I can remember hearing, and as such it holds a special place....... Bing Crosby's White Christmas is the quintessential Christmas Song. That was the song the soldiers listened to during WWII. It was the background music for a lot of poignant Christmas celebrations. It's got echoes and nostalgia, and that's the biggest part of a successful Christmas song.
