Christmas Songs

What's your favorite Christmas song?

My oldest asked me this question yesterday. I told him I didn't know. It depended on the singer, and it depended on the genre. I have a soft heart for Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra, but I think my favorite Christmas album is The Carpenters. I especially love the 'Christmas Waltz'. Love it! It makes me want to get up and dance the waltz (with memories of dancing with my dad). Love 'Sleigh Ride'...oh and what about 'It's Christmas Time' and the lovely piano. I always wanted to learn hot to play the complicated introduction. And I loved 'Ave Maria'. Yes, I could go on forever. Love The Carpenters. I'm going to go listen to some music. It makes me happy. :)

Politics & Leslie Ann Warren

My first exposure to heated discussions over politics was when I first watched "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band". I watched mostly because of the cute romance and the cute boys, but of course I watched it because of the music. I have always been a sucker for classic movies that make my toe tap. I want to watch this movie again now from my adult perspective so I can understand more of what was going on in the movie and to watch Leslie Ann Warren.

P.S. God bless America!
