40 Years of Christmas Music

"The King" was making his comeback when this was recorded (I think it was '68 instead of '69, but close enough!)

An amazing rendition by the incomparable Ray Charles in 1979, 30 years ago!

Takes you back to the sweet, sweet sounds of Luther Vandross in 1989... sigh, all three of them gone now.

I was a big fan of this Celtic group, the Corrs (3 sisters and a brother) in 1999, musical tastes changing for what they were. They tackle the John Lennon anthem where he calls for an end to war at Christmastime.

And last, my favorite video of the holiday season this year... the old and the new as Stevie Wonder and India.Arie take an old song and make it new again in LA earlier this month.

Hope you enjoyed!

Great post, Quid. I just put Mary Mace to bed and we sang 4 Christmas carols to each other at her insistence, then read "Fancy Nancy's Splendiferous Christmas" and then we traded stories. She wanted to know about my best Christmas, so I told her my story about 2nd grade and getting that bride doll. She was full of questions as only a 6 year old can be. We got in trouble by her Mama and I had to leave the bedroom. But I whispered to her that we'd continue tomorrow. We've had a blast and I'm going to hate to go home Monday....Love & Blessings!!
