“Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” – Darlene Love


Yes, I know I’m jumping the gun on this Christmas thing, but so are all the retailers this year, starting Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving evening. So, I’m getting the jump on them. Take that, retailers!

But I digress … This is my all-time favorite Christmas tune, especially towards the end where Love takes the vocals completely over the top. Puts a shiver up my spine every time. Say what you will about Phil Spector’s girl (as well as guns, drugs, and legal) troubles, he was a hell of a producer back in the day.
