My threshold for holiday music is pretty low, but there are a handful of Christmas songs that this Jew actually enjoys hearing around this time. While I was all set to share Darlene Love’s annual stunning performance of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) from The Late Show with David Letterman along with Jay Thomas’ hilarious retelling of the Lone Ranger story – I stumbled on something even better to share with the class today.
For me, it really isn’t the holiday season without hearing Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s bar rock rendition of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – a song that was written and recorded all the way back in 1934 and sold over 400,000 copies that year. This version comes from a show at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey on September 20, 1978 – enjoy…
