I searched and searched, but was unable to come up with a version of this song by any of the marvelous artists who passed away this year. Thus on this final day of 2017 I am diverting from my theme to present What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? sung by the legendary Karen Carpenter.
I have never personally used these two words to describe the same thing, but to each his own.
I noticed several months ago that a quite a few musical artists had passed away this year, a trend that continued throughout the rest of 2017. My holiday selections this year have featured some of these artists who have enriched our lives. Today’s pick is a little different. Not only had I never heard of Johnny Halliday, I was unaware that there was a “French Elvis.” While I am not up to the task of translating the lyrics – the title means “Christmas Together” – we can count ourselves fortunate that music truly is the universal language.
A fine song for a chilly day.
Just cuz, ya know. It’s hard leaving Christmas behind.
I went to bed at 6:00 last night and slept until 3:00 this afternoon. I have been awake for a whopping 3 hours and think it may be time for some more healing slumber. But not before spending some quality Christmas with Chuck Berry first.
