Old School Friday * Merry Christmas Baby
We had our first snowflakes yesterday. Thanksgiving leftovers are gone. It truly is time to begin the preparations for Christmas. What better way to get in the mood than to listen to a few different renditions of Merry Christmas Baby. The song was originally written by Charles Brown. Here he is singing it live.
My favorite version is the one that Ray Charles gave back in 1979 while on tour in Germany.
And you know a song is a classic when it brings together people as different as these two!
