Dominick the Donkey

Merry Christmas to All!

Today we have several Holiday Songs of the Day. The first song I heard for the first time this morning, Dominick the Donkey, and a rockin Ciaramitaro rendition can be seen here. Thank you Felicia and Dee for sharing!

The second song is for Donna and Kathy.

Eartha Kitt’s “Santa Baby” Holiday Song of the Day

“Santa Baby” was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt and Henri René and his orchestra in 1953. The song was written by Joan Javits (niece of Senator Jacob Javits) and Philip Springer. I hope you enjoy the glamor shots and vintage fashions in this video as much as do I!

Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight. Read more

Michael Buble’s “All I Want for Christmas is You”

Holiday Song of the Day ~ The first video is interesting and talks about how Michael Bulbe essentially “stole” his bass player’s arrangement, and then teamed up to create this wonderfully soulful version of “All I Want for Christmas is You.”  Comment with your favorite holiday song; we would love to share!
