Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

One of my favorite Christmas songs is "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas",

The song was written for the movie Meet Me in St. Louis and originally sung by the iconic Judy Garland in 1944. But like most Christmas songs it has also been recorded by a host of other popular artists including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, James Taylor and Sam Smith. It ranks 3rd in sales for Christmas songs.

The version I chose for this post was performed by pop singer Lou Rawls. Lou’s deep baritone voice adds a cool modern mix of blues & jazz sounds to the song. Lou Rawls had a way of taking many popular songs and making them his own.

I have a personal reason for posting this song. I had the opportunity to meet Lou on several occasions. Lou, who had a home nearby in Carefree, AZ could be seen regularly at the local Home Depot or Alberston’s grocery store. He always friendly and always had a kind word for anyone he would meet in the neighborhood.

This song is that is on my Christmas playlist every year.

Dear Joseph,

In that case, "have yourself a merry little Christmas!" Hope you will have a couple days off. This year is kind of good for that.

Hi Joseph Domino 480-390-6011 I'm familiar with Carefree Arizona.... I managed a real estate office in Franklin in the 1980's and the broker/owner owned a second home in Carefree Arizona.... he was a golfer and loved it there....  he spent the winters there....and was out of "my hair".... we set the world on fire and I was very thankful to Carefree Arizona....

Great selection Joseph. My favorite part of the holidays is all the festive music while shopping. I can understand your preference for the Lou Rawls version.
