This is a nice cover of Stealers Wheel’s tune – Stuck in the Middle with You.
I was going to write a long post on the Cowboys season. Then I thought why? Everyone in the world is writing about the Cowboys and Jason Garrett. I know that some folks are saying that the Cowboys are very talented. I’m not sure that’s true. Today the Cowboys looked bad – offense, defense and special teams. We will see what happens in the offseason.
Michael Buble’ kinda has a Bing Crosby voice. Soft and mellow. He voice was made for Christmas tunes
When you think about great Christmas tunes, I really don’t think about Joy to the World. It is a nice tune but I really don’t think that anyone has really hit this tune out of the park. Well, Earth, Wind and Fire has a very cool version of Joy to the World.
Winter Wonderland is one of my favorite Christmas tunes. I’m sorry but I really love the Andy Williams version of this tune,
Williams just has a great voice. I remember in high school, trying to play this tune. We killed it. No I mean we really murdered the tune. I’m surprised that are band director didn’t give up. He didn’t and we got somewhat better.
Al Jarreau put out a Christmas album. His version of Winter Wonderland is worth a listen. It swings. Al really leans into the Walking portion of the refrain which gives the tune a nice groove.
So, forget the disappointing Cowboys. Let’s enjoy some great Christmas music.
Artist: Otis Redding
Tune: Merry Christmas Baby
This tune really doesn’t get its due. It is Otis Redding in a nutshell. If you are looking for the Memphis horn sound this tune has it. Otis was so soulful. This tune has the soulful power of his voice. Again this is one of the great Christmas tunes!!
