christmas series #3: darlene love

Darlene Love is a Christmas fixture to me, mostly because she performs every year on Letterman. I'm talking every single year since like 1986. She sings the song I am sharing with you today and always knocks it out of the park. Everyone f-ing loves it and has a great time. I always think about Christmas and Darlene belting it out when I hear her name.

Darlene started her career as part of a girl group called The Blossoms. What a bunch of pistils! Get it? Anyway, she worked with that crazy murderer (allegedly) Phil Spector on several popular songs and made a name for herself as a vocalist. The Blossoms sang back-up on "Johnny Angel." Great. Now you will have that song stuck in your head for the next two weeks. DON'T KILL ME FOR THAT. Darlene has dabbled in acting and keeps on singing to this day. Her voice is awesome. Please watch Letterman's last new show before the holidays to see her sing this year. It's just a good tradition to start for yourself.
