2011 Advent Calendar Day 23: Darlene Love, “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”

Darlene Love’s Phil Spector produced “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” is easily one of the best Christmas recordings ever. How good is it? Well, David Letterman annually invites Love on to The Late Show to perform the song on the last episode before Christmas. In that case, it means that Love is on Letterman tonight and if you’re not doing anything around 12:20AM, you should tune in to CBS and watch her perform. In fact, Love has become so connected with Christmas that in 2005 Robert Smigle asked her to provide the vocals for an animated Saturday Night Live sketch called “Christmas For The Jews.” Anyway, without any further ado, here’s Love and “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”
