Darlene Love - (Christmas Baby) Please Come Home



I love Darlene Love. I love this song. I think it's my favorite of the Holiday Season. It's always tradition to watch her on Letterman - going back to when I was a kid and my grandma and I would watch her back in the 90s and 00s!

1. I agree with you- I love Darlene Love

Several years back, the AM jocks on Air America were featuring Darlene Love, promoting her annual Christmas show at the Apollo.

A guy phoned in to the show and said, "Hey, it's my birthday."

So this lucky guy got to listen to Darlene Love sing Happy Birthday to him on the radio.

All the Spector love songs, where Darlene Love was singing, and guys were feeling like, "What if she was singing this to me?"

And this guy got to actually experience Darlene Love singing directly to him, over the radio.

Of course, the blabbermouth AM idiot dj's couldn't keep from jumping in and ruining the moment, but, still, for this guy, it must've been a fantasy come true.

Great show- thanks for posting it. She never fails to get to me. The saxophone elf in the Christmas globe was a stroke of genius.

What a kick the band must get out of playing with her.

2. Isn't she great

Looked it up and she has been doing the Letterman Christmas show - Christmas Baby Please Come Home - since 1986!
Letterman says this is his favorite part of Christmas.
You know - she is 71 years old - unbelievable.

Jay Thomas and his story about the Lone Ranger is still funny after all these years.

One of my favorite traditions too.

4. 71! Wow, I didn't know that.

She still has some good pipes.

I missed her this year but did hear Jay Thomas again!
